The Potty Pages of Asheville NC

Asheville's Advocate for Clean Public Restrooms

The Potty Patrol, PO Box 6514, Asheville, NC 28816

**New for September: new links and new additions to Tidy and Pooty lists**

Disgusted with the constantly unsanitary conditions in many of the public restrooms I visited, I wondered just what I could ever do to change things for the better. Giving the store the benefit of the doubt - maybe they didn't realize just how nasty their bathroom was - I made it a habit to inform the employees and/or the management whenever their restroom appeared "neglected." Many months later, I can say with total honesty, "I tried." In most cases, my plea was totally ignored.

So I thought long and hard - what more could I do? The staff had been told and they had chosen to do nothing to improve the overall condition of their public restroom. But, perhaps if their potential customers knew the truth, these fine establishments would clean up their act! Hmmm... An IDEA!

The Potty Pages are born! So, you see, this webpage was not created as a joke. Nor do I, or any of the contributers, have malicious intent. My sole purpose is to report our observations. Read on for the Potty Patrol's OFFICIAL FINDINGS...
