Do you use a disposable toilet seat cover in public bathrooms? I prefer to use the hover method, myself. But it is nice to have them available in the bathroom, it gives at least an illusion of cleanliness.
The bathrooms at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT have an automatic moving toilet seat cover that always freaks me out just a little bit. It’s a great idea to provide a toilet seat cover that you don’t have to touch, although you do need to touch a button (you can also wave your hand over the motion sensor, but I am notorious for having issues with these).
But how do I know where the toilet seat cover is coming from? It seems like it potentially could just be going around in a circle, providing a different part of the cover, like an infinite towel loop that bathrooms used to have (ick!)
Upon further research, I discovered that there is actually a clean side coming from one side of the toilet and the used toilet seat cover is collected on the other side, so it can then be disposed of. So hey, infinity toilet seat cover, you’re pretty smart!
