And if you have boys at home, especially young ones, I'm sure cleaning the toilet includes you having a look of complete disgust on your face the entire time all while saying to yourself, "How on Earth did it get dirty there? Or there? Or THERE!?!". You moms out there with multiple young boys at home, I feel for ya. Until they perfect their aim, cleaning the toilet is always going to be frustrating because no matter what, the seat hinge is always going to look gross.
At least that's what I used to think.
Introducing the Bemis Easy-Clean toilet seat. I had no idea something like this existed until this past summer when we were selecting plumbing fixtures for our new house. It's not like shopping for a toilet seat happens very often so if this is something that has been on the market for awhile, I wouldn't have known. Chances are you don't shop for a new toilet seat very often either.
This toilet seat completely lifts off from the toilet and will change your life when it comes to cleaning your toilet. No more crusty spots that are hard to get to around the hinge. Don't say ew because you know exactly what I'm talking about. It's so easy to clean the toilet in our house now that I don't even try and pawn the job off on someone else. :)
There are only two steps involved in removing the seat. You simply turn the hinge locks to the left and pull up. Easy peasy. To attach the lid back on, you just place the hinges over the bolts, push down, and then turn the hinges to the right. I'm guessing the person who came up with the idea for this seat is a mom. With boys.
I keep the cleaning supplies nearby so when it is time to clean the toilet, I don't have to do digging for them. And instead of keeping our cleaning supplies out, which can be really unsightly, I use a basket with a lid to conceal everything. I'm not a fan of keeping cleaning supplies under the sink or in a closet because those areas seem to get cluttered and can become very unorganized. Plus, I can easily take the basket with me to the other bathrooms.
And speaking of keeping things clean, normally I don't like to keep my extra toilet paper out in the open, but with the new Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® product packaging, I don't mind it one bit. Heck, their new product packaging matches the colors in my bathroom. :) Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch® toilet paper has a unique construction that limits tissue ripping and separation. Do you know what that means? That means clean kids.
When you are at Walmart next, head down the bath tissue aisle and look for the pretty blue packaging for Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong. It's strong and flexible and sewer and septic safe. Between the Bemis Easy-Clean toilet seat and Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong, clean will no longer be a question.
So tell me, did you know this seat existed? And do you have any bathroom cleaning secrets to share?
