Women will appreciate this handicap bathroom accessory: A tampon/sanitary napkin dispenser. Install the unit at a height similar to the paper towel or dryer unit, approximately 40 inches (1220 mm) above the floor. Be sure that the knob on the dispenser can be turned with a loose grip and doesn't need more than 5 pounds of force. And don't forget the tampon/napkin disposal boxes for the handicap toilet. Without the disposal boxes, public restroom users may flush their feminine hygiene products, which can lead to nasty toilet clogs.
