Using a public toilet can be an unpleasant experience.
The thought of thousands of strangers sitting on the same seat before you is enough to keep you holding it in, until the final moment.
Fortunately a doctor has now revealed which cubicle is likely to be the cleanest in any public toilet,
whether it is in a theatre, an eatery, supermarket, foyer or an airport terminal.
Dr Oz explained that most toilet users tended to skip the first stall in favour of ones further away from the door because they want 'a little more privacy'.
He continued: 'But because the first stall is used least often, it contains the lowest bacteria levels.
'Instead of skipping the first stall, choose it to help avoid possible infections.'
However, for men it's different. They tend to use the first cubicle more often, as such that tends to be the one with the most bacteria.
