America's Best Restrooms
(L)Shoji Tabuchi's Ladies' Room
When you gotta go, you gotta go...but it sure does help if the restroom is clean. Take it from me. I've traveled all over these United States by car from the time I was a little girl. I've been in some of the worst restrooms imaginable, and also some of the best.
Hey, I've even been in Shoji Tabuchi's ladies' room, (picture above), which is the height of luxury when it comes to public loo's. (Shoji, by the way, is an entertainer in Branson, Missouri.) And I give props to Chicago's O'Hare for its nifty plastic-wrapped toilet seats--you simply wave your hand and voila, a fresh one appears, with the assurance that it will be shredded when you're done with it. Oh, that all toilet seats were so sanitary!
Let's face it, we probably couldn't get along without public "facilities." So it makes me very proud to know that an Illinois restroom is one of five finalists in this year's in this year's America's Best Restroom contest, sponsored by Cintas Corporation's Sanis brand of restroom services.
USA Today's article quotes Quad City International Airport (Moline, IL) aviation director, Bruce Carter: "We do get good compliments about the terminal and its cleanliness...That's just a tribute to the staff who do a nice job and work hard to keep it first-class."
Good for you, Quad City International Airport! May others follow your shining example.
By the way, Cintas will announce the winner in April.
Another shameless plug:
