I don't do peppermint oil, but others have and say it's good. You could try Ginger oil capsules/tablets (in Canada we have Gravol Ginger. Costco sells them here as well. Don't know if you have a comparable in the US.
What dosage of Bentyl did you use?
the paper towels ;-) It's easy to pick stuff up from wherever, even when we're so cautious.
Lid down on the seat when flushing is another good habit, and disinfecting the toilet (seat/inside of lid/flusher lever and wall around toilet paper) helps a lot too.
Germaphobe is OK considering how hard some of the stuff we can get (that's contagious) is on us.
