BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 1. Field of the Invention
 This invention relates to public restroom toilets and, more particularly, to apparatus for sanitizing and cleansing the toilet seats within of generally sexually transmitted germs, virus and bacteria.
 2. Description of the Related Arts
 It is not uncommon for people to use public restroom toilets as may be found in restaurants, at transportation terminals, and in such public places as theaters, museums, casinos, places,of business and other places where the public is invited. With modern technology, such facilities also take the form of such portable units as might be found at a fairground, sporting event, or parade, for example.
 As is well understood, many people in need of using such facilities hesitate to do so because of the fear that the sitting on the toilet seat might result in the catching of generally sexually transmitted diseases, resulting from germs, virus and bacteria left on the seat by previous occupants. In those circumstances where the toilet seat is nevertheless used, many of the attending public first attempt to cover the seat with toilet paper, while others first rinse the toilet paper in an adjacent sink before washing down the seat. One problem with this first method is that the configuration of the seat does not readily lend itself to retain the paper in position prior to its being sat upon--a second problem being that the paper oftentimes clings to the underside of the user's thighs upon getting up. With the second manner of attempting to clean the seat before use, a source of rinse water is not always available--as, where the stall is of a "portable-potty" type transported to a field location in handling an over-flow crowd, and thereafter removed for storage. An alternative approach of pulling a paper seat cover down from an adjacent cabinet and placing it onto the seat suffers from the disadvantage that not all toilet seat configurations are configured the same, so that no universal shape for the pull-down paper cover is available for convenient placement on the seat then to be utilized. Also, as will be appreciated, others try to refrain from using the public toilet seat because of difficulty in squatting over a strange seat in use that they would prefer not to be using. Even though these problems continue to persist, those in need continue to utilize the public rest facility--although a preferable way of dealing with the toilet seat would obviously much be welcomed.
OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION
 It is an object of the present invention, therefore, to provide a new and improved public restroom toilet seat sanitizing apparatus.
 It is an object of the invention, also, to provide such an apparatus which is located at the restroom facility itself, so that it will always be there, and not require a user to carry anything about with them on their person, as in a pocket book or wallet, to clean a toilet seat when the occasion arises for its needed use.
 It is another object of the invention to provide such sanitizing apparatus as will be available for use whenever, and wherever, it is needed.
 It is a further object of the present invention to provide such a public restroom toilet seat sanitizing apparatus useful in cleansing a toilet seat of generally sexually transmitted germs, virus and bacteria whether or not a source of rinse water is available.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 As will become clear from the following description, the apparatus of the present invention operates upon a toilet seat on a commode within a walled-in stall of a public rest facility, with the toilet seat having top, bottom, rear and side surfaces with a hollow between the top and bottom surfaces. An inlet port is provided on one of the rear and side surfaces of the seat, communicating inwardly with the hollow--and an opening is provided in the top surface of the seat overlying such hollow. In accordance with the invention, a dispenser containing an antibacterial, self-drying disinfectant solution is suspended from an inside wall of the stall, and a length of tubing extends between an outlet port of the dispenser and the inlet port of the seat. Means are provided for actuating the dispenser to discharge its disinfectant solution from the dispenser through the tubing, the inlet port of the seat and the hollow, to exit onto the top surface of the seat by way of the opening there provided, in allowing the disinfectant solution to be swabbed by a user to clean the seat of any generally sexually transmitted germs, viruses and bacteria that might be there. As will be appreciated, the disinfectant solution may simply be spread about the seat through the use of toilet paper, or any such similar paper present.
 In a preferred construction of the invention, the length of tubing may be of a plastic or stainless steel composition, and of substantially 1/4 inch outside diameter. The tubing may be joined with the inlet port on the toilet seat by a compression fitted coupler--for example, of a 1/4 inch inside diameter by a 1/4 inch National Pipe Thread (NPT) male threaded compression 90° fitting. Such coupler may likewise be of stainless steel composition, or of brass or plastic for that matter. To assure economy of operation, the actuation of the dispenser to discharge its disinfectant solution may be by way of a paddle responsive to an applied hand pressure in allowing a measured amount of disinfectant solution to be discharged on each push of the paddle.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING
 These and other features of the present invention will be more clearly understood from a consideration of the following description, taken in connection with the single FIGURE of the Drawing depicting a preferred embodiment of the public restroom toilet seat sanitizing apparatus of the invention.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
 In the Drawing, a toilet 10 includes a commode 12 and a seat 14 within a walled-in stall 16 of a public rest facility. As indicated, the seat 14 is configured by its top and bottom surface 18, 20, side surfaces 22 and 24 and a rear surface 26. In accordance with the invention, a hollow 28 is provided within the seat 14, between its top and bottom surfaces 18, 20, and an inlet port 30 on the rear surface 26 communicates inwardly with the hollow 28 (although with the teachings of the invention, such inlet port 26 may be located instead on one of the side surfaces 22, 24).
 A dispenser 32 containing an antibacterial, self-drying disinfectant solution is suspended from an inside wall of the stall 16 (as at 34)--and includes an outlet port 36 to which is coupled a length of tubing 38 which extends to reach the inlet port 30 of the seat 14. Such tubing 38 joins with the inlet port 30 (and thereby with the hollow 28) by way of a compression fitted coupler 40. To such end, the inlet port 30 on the seat 14 may be threaded internally, to receive the coupler 40--which may be of 1/4 inch inside diameter by 1/4 inch NPT male thread compression 90° for a length of tubing 38 of substantially 1/4 outside diameter. Such coupler 40 may be one of a brass or stainless steel composition, while the tubing 38 may be of plastic or stainless steel composition at the same time. To insure a permanent type, secure coupling, the inlet port 30 on the seat 14 may be an NPT female thread.
 As will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art, the antibacterial, self-drying disinfectant solution may be of any appropriate type, but one which would be effective in cleaning the seat of any generally sexually transmitted germs, viruses and bacteria that might be present. To permit refilling, the dispenser 32 may be provided with a removable top 42 to allow filling, preferably to a 1-2 gallon capacity--or by any other appropriate manner. When of a composition comparable to that of a "hand-soap" found in public restroom facilities for washing one's hands at a sink, a like disinfectant solution could be used in the dispenser 32, in allowing the solution to be spread about the top surface 18 of the seat by toilet paper. To obtain the disinfectant on the top surface 18, a further opening 44 is provided in the surface 18 so that the disinfectant solution once discharged, is able to flow through the outlet port 36 of the dispenser 32, the tubing 38, the coupler 40 into the hollow 28 and out the opening 44 located to overlie the hollow 28. Such dispenser 32 may be of a type having a "paddle" 46 responsive to an applied hand pressure pressing on it to discharge a measured amount of disinfectant solution with each "push" in transporting the disinfectant solution from the dispenser 32 to the opening 44, to be thereafter spread about.
 As will thus be seen, the advantages of the invention also would be attractive in eliminating the need for "pull down" paper dispensing seat configurations at a public restroom location or the requirement for continually servicing them.
 While there have been described what is considered to be a preferred embodiments of the present invention, it will be readily appreciated that modifications can be made without departing from the scope of the teachings herein. For at least such reason, therefore, resort should be had to the claims appended hereto for a true understanding of the scope of the invention.
