Whole Foods, Duke Street, Alexandria, VA


This is unbelievable; I have finally found another grocery store with a clean bathroom!!! Whole Foods is one of my favorite places, but I'm sorry they are a bit overpriced. I still go there because there are still some things you can't find at your regular grocery store. Their hummus is the best and so are their soups. At any rate; after my intended $20 shopping spree turned into $80, I checked out their bathroom. The first thing that greeted me at the door was a light orange citrus scent, nothing overpowering but something very pleasant indeed. The bathroom was very clean with the exception of the sinks which could have used a wipe down. The floor tiles were a nice rusty, brown. I guess when you charge $8.00 for mouthwash, you can afford nice tile. There was a changing station, but it was behind the door of the second stall and I can see this will cause a problem with someone changing a baby and someone else coming out of the second stall. The sinks were black and needed a wipe down, but not horrible. There was also a feminine product dispenser. The soap was a nice lavender scent and a full length mirror. The best part was the number of choices for drying your hands. There were two dryers, one tall one short (for kids I presume). There were paper towels and Purell sanitizing gel. You had your choice of how you wanted to clean your hands. There was an open trash can just inside the door and there was also a trashcan just outside the bathroom door. I have no issue with this place. The bathroom is one of the best I've seen in a grocery store.

Yo that post makes me want to go out thier to duke to by my groceries. Yo Lab Lady have you ever thought about writing wickepedia add about this. Maybe something along the lines of clean up your bathroom movement.

You call whatever classy name you want but if you were to create you tubes of good vs bad bathrooms and then leave the owner of the bathrooms address at the end of the you tube video for people to email the owner about they would have to clean up thier bathrooms sorry for the long post. Enjoyed the post.

Hey Mark,

Yes, I am working on both of those things now. I haven't quite figured out what to say on the Wiki site, but I do have one video on You Tube and as soon as I find the video cord,i'm going to upload some more. Thanks for looking out and I welcome any other suggestions!

I don't know where you live, but Wegman's also has a very nice restroom.

Hi Kell,

There is a Wegmans in Fairfax which is not too far from me. I'll have to and check it out. Thanks for the tip. I wish there was one closer to me; it's a great store!

Lavlady I have a question. Have you ranked the worst bathrooms. I bet If you did that and then if the owners of the restaraunts were notified that thier bathrooms rank amongst the dirstest the owners would have to clean up thier bathrooms.
