To avoid germs in a public washroom, pick the stall closest to the door. Studies show that it is used the least, so it should be the cleanest.
Before washing your hands, release the paper towel from the dispenser that you will need. Wash in hot water using soap and point your fingers downward to wash off the germs.
Leave the water on. Dry your hands thoroughly, even between the fingers, and use the paper towel to turn the taps off and to open the bathroom door. A garbage pail outside the washroom won't be too far away for you to throw the paper towel into.

Do not set your purse or anything else on the floor, that's where gross stuff gets on the bottom of the purse, (just think about where your purse has been in your household i.e. dining room table). if there isn't a hook, I hold my purse under my arm, if the handles are long enough, over my head. If you think about it, you'd never wear your shoes in the house either, that cuts down on people in the house getting sick.
