I was recently asked to try out the Charmin Sit or Squat: Restroom Finder App while running around in Miami and while I am being compensated for sharing my findings with you, all opinions are my own!
I know that we've all been there: you've been guzzling a Peach Nehi on a family road trip, and have to pull over at the nearest truck stop to use the bathroom before your bladder explodes.
You walk in...and find yourself having to squat over the toilet because it's been days before someone's cleaned it.
Sometimes those nasty bathrooms aren't even at the truck stop - they're at the grocery store, in the pharmacy, or in your local movie theater.
So Charmin came up with an awesome idea for an app, and I had actually heard about it before from a friend on Twitter but never got around to downloading it. Now that I've downloaded it and used it throughout June, I'm a little bit addicted!
What is the Charmin Sit or Squat App?
The Sit or Squat app by Charmin simply helps you find a clean bathroom - and warns you about dirty bathrooms near you - on your mobile device when you're out and about.
How does the Charmin Sit or Squat App Work?
First of all, the Charmin Sit or Squat app is FREE! Users share information on the availability, quality and cleanliness of public restrooms in cities across the country. Sit or Squat also allows you to search for restrooms with specific features, like changing tables and handicap access.
More than 125,000 public bathrooms throughout the United States are already listed on the Charmin Sit or Squat App, and if there aren't any bathrooms already listed on the app when you're searching for an area, you can add a location yourself!
You can add a new location and then rate your experience by designating that restroom as a “Sit” (for an enjoyable bathroom) or a “Squat” (for a restroom that could be better) location, based on the cleanliness and overall experience. You can also add comments when leaving your sit or squat designation, and add photos of the bathrooms too! You add locations by entering in the name of the establishment and then it searches for its address. It's pretty simple! I live in South West Miami, and there weren't a lot of locations already in the app, so I had plenty of experience adding them.
Where is the Charmin Sit or Squat App Available?
The Sit or Squat database contains restrooms from all over the world; however, the latest version of the app is only available for restrooms uploaded in the United States. The global restrooms are still shown in the app, but users cannot rate/review or add additional restrooms outside of the United States.
Sit or Squat is available to for free from the Apple App Store or Android Market, and it's available in both English and Spanish. Just download it like you would any app, and connect via Facebook for easy login! You can also share your bathroom reviews on your Facebook page if you like!
Download Sit or Squat in iTunes here or Google Play here.

I love the idea of this app, it's funny! I am so picky about where my kids and I squat!
OMG that is awesome!!! I hate finding a bathroom on the road and get in there and turn right around! Most useful app ever!!! 🙂
I forgot about this app! I had it on my old phone and got a kick out of it! Going to dig for it now!
Wow that pretty useful application which will not only help you to get the clean loo near by area but also warn you.
They have apps for everything now a days. this one could definitely come in handy.
This is very useful application. When you find yourself in rural areas this will definitely help.
