Public restroom toilets can make anyone worry about coming into contact with germs.

But now, thanks to some new...And automatic...technology, it is now more sanitary to go to the bathroom.

Kristi Larson reports.

In a bathroom there are plenty of ways to avoid touching where germs may be--- with automatic soap--sinks or paper-towels.

But now it's become easier to avoid them when your in the stalls, because now with a wave of your hand, a clean sheet of this plastic that will soon be recycled is helping give a protective seat cover for you every time.

Lauri Cooper says "that is really cool. That is a neat concept. It'll keep everybody from having to worry about germs and whatnot. That is really awesome."

A look inside shows the old plastic is cut up with a small razor so it won't be used again.

Later it will be melted down and used for other things.

"This is your fresh roll, this is your dirty roll."

"You know they have the sheets that you can put on, for sanitary reasons, but they sometimes don't stay in place, so i think this is really ideal." says visitor Janice Finkenbinder.

They aren't only here at the shooting star casino, but all around the U.S. So many that about 6 million use the seats a month.
Shooting Star general manager Edward Hanson says, "We thought hey he has a great idea. He has a great product, and we wanted to be first in the area to put them in."

Finally a toilet made for women.

"Women thank me all the time. No longer do they have to huddle over the toilet. They can actually sit down, and not worry about picking up any communicable diseases." said Brill hygienic Products CEO Alan Brill.

"There's so many people in and out of there, that's awesome."

Many airports also have the new sanitary toilets, and even germaphobe Howie Mandel has them in his home.
