A lot of people tend to avoid using public toilets for various reasons, but one major concern is cleanliness and the potential risk of infection. However, there are countries where self-cleaning public toilets are becoming more popular. These toilets have the ability to clean themselves using advanced technology, which not only ensures that the next person who uses the toilet has a clean environment but also minimizes the risk of exposure to harmful bacteria or viruses. Recently, a video showcasing the self-cleaning process of one such toilet was shared on X, and it quickly went viral among netizens, generating a lot of interest and curiosity.

A fourth shared, "Sounds fascinating! It's amazing how innovation is transforming our everyday experiences. Finding ways to make public facilities more sustainable and efficient is a step towards a conscious and responsible urban living."
