Man goes viral giving tips on where to find the best poop spots in Toronto

We’ve all been there. That moment where you have to go, and the chance is nil that you will be home in time. Public restrooms aren’t always readily available in Toronto, and even when they are, they can be an absolute horror show.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was some kind of poo concierge that acted as signage for where to put a city dookie comfortably and hygienically?

Well, there it is. His name is Daniel Lyght and he will show you the best spots to displace toilet water in style and relative luxury.

The 28-year-old data analyst now works as Toronto’s unofficial poop guide after a short video went viral on TikTok earlier this week.

“If you’re ever in downtown Toronto and need to poop, I recommend Sweat and Tonic,” says Lyght, going on to describe some pretty impressive amenities like mouthwash that you just won’t find in a TTC bathroom. .

“Second place is Nordstrom. If you go to the second floor, Nordstrom has its own washroom, Lyght says. “It’s very clean, unlike the public washroom at the Toronto Eaton Center.”

Lyght didn’t expect the first poo guide video to go viral and soon returned with a sequel, filmed in the Yonge and Bloor area.

His main spot in Yonge and Bloor is Eataly Toronto (which is actually more like Bay and Bloor, if I’m going to nitpick), which he gives a 9.5 out of 10 and takes viewers on a first-hand visit. The toilet paper gets a solid 8/10 despite being only “1.5 ply”.

While you’d expect the Toronto Reference Library to be a good backup, Lyght prefers the smaller Yorkville branch a short distance to the west.

Lyght tells blogTO that he’s constantly sharing tips and tricks among his circle of friends, “so I decided to put one up on TikTok and it went VIRAL.”

“I realized that I am often in the center that it is very difficult to find a clean washroom in our city. I am one of those people who goes home alone, but there are places where I feel the same comfort as home. I realized through my video that many people share the same aspiration.”

“Laundry rooms are genderless and multifunctional, so our women, men and our non-binary people in Toronto all share the enthusiasm for finding a safe and clean space to be human.”

“That’s why it’s important to remember your company’s total guest service. The washroom is so important to us as customers or prospective customers, so it should be important for a guest to feel comfortable, especially when it comes to retention and returning foot traffic or poo traffic.”
