Restrooms are one of dirtiest places to be in. Everyone is supposed to wash their hands, but not everyone does. One problem I have with restrooms are the fact that I have to open the door after I have already washed my hands. The door handles are extremely dirty, and those who don’t wash their hands make it even dirtier.
A standard should be made for restroom doors. They should always be pull from the outside, and push from the inside. For those that are reversed or different, There should be a way to open the door with your bottom foot instead of your hands.
With this design, everyone will be able to open the door to leave the restroom with their feet. So even if people don’t wash their hands, they will not be contaminating anything. Those who do wash their hands won’t have to deal with the door handle making their freshly cleaned hands dirty. The door will always be opened with their foot, so nobody has to worry about touching a dirty door handle.
