  • Do You:

    have to leave a meeting often to go to the bathroom, devastated that you've drawn attention to yourself?

  • Do You:

    love to travel and socialize but are hesitant and anxious about not being able to find a washroom when you feel the urge to go?

    always choose an aisle seat at the theatre or panic when you see a long line up for the bathroom?

If any of this sounds too familiar, the Powder Room is for you!
