If the thought of using a public restroom gives you the heebie jeebies, I've got a product right up your alley.

Potty Mitts ($5 for a pack of 12) are disposable gloves designed to keep kids germ free when using unknown bathrooms. The water-resistant gloves can withstand puddles and splashes and fold up to fit into mom's purse or diaper bag.

What puzzles me the most about this odd invention is the fact that they are not flushable. The company claims this encourages kids to keep them on as they exit the stall and avoid germs on doors, but I wonder how long a little one is really going to keep the gloves on?
