03 Jan That Freezing Cold Toilet Seat
If you’re living aboard in a non-tropical place in the winter, your tush may be rebelling at that cold, cold toilet seat. I’ve heard complaints from friends as far south as Tampa on some of these chilly mornings.
Just the other day, I got this note from Laura Miller, a reader:
Our head is freezing! Even with the boat heated the toilet seat is miserable. We bought these and my husband and I are now loving our boat again!!!!
What did she buy? A soft and warm toilet seat cover. Don’t be put off by some of the reviews that say it’s a little small — most boat toilet seats are a little smaller than those for homes and are virtually never the large elongated ones. (Obviously, these won’t work if your toilet has a molded-in seat, such as our Nature’s Head.)
The toilet seat cover comes in a 3- or 6-pack on Amazon and is washable:
The material is stretchy to fit various seat shapes. Laura says to be sure to take a look at the installation pictures from Amazon (below) as it’s not totally intuitive and instructions are not included.
