How to use a sanisette

From: Paris Public Toilets

Step 3:

After you've finished your business with the WC, stick your hands into the receptacle below the mirror. The sanisette will squirt your hands with soap and water (assuming that the device is working correctly), and a few seconds later a hot-air blower will dry your hands.

When you're ready to leave, open the door from the inside and step out. The door will close after a short interval, and the robotic attendant will prepare the booth for the next occupant in about 60 seconds.

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free tourist car lease can be much cheaper than renting for visits of 21+ days--especially if you start or end your trip in France.

Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance. To compare vehicles and rates, see:
