Whether you're looking to relieve yourself of number one or number two, you'll want to consult this restroom-rating app before seeking out just any old public bathroom. The level of sanitation of a space might not always be obvious, but you can now rely on a large community of loo users for the lowdown on which ones are actually hygienic.

The toilet paper company Charmin has come up with a doozy of a solution for a common dilemma: Should you hover over a toilet sea, line it with tissues, or trust a particular porcelain throne and sit right down? The SitOrSquat app provides you with an interactive map, complete with toilet roll pins that mark registered urban washrooms. Be they restaurants or city pit stops, they will be color-coded with green or red to indicate their cleanliness. Over time, more user comments, photos and ratings will shed light on dingy facilities, and feedback given may even influence some improvement.
