"PottyCover is a disposable toilet seat cover for children that covers the sides and the front of the toilet, to keep away germs at public rest-rooms. It is made of non-woven fabric coated with a layer of plastic, creating a waterproof barrier between the toilet and the child. This product has the largest coverage of all seat covers on the market and for added convenience, each seat cover is individually packaged i"n a small, easy to open bag that makes it super easy to always keep one or two in a purse or a back pocket.
Using a public rest-room with a young child could be very stressful, but with PottyCovers the whole family can feel safe knowing that even at the filthiest bathrooms they will be protected from germs. We designed this product for kids, but it has become a must-have travel item for many of our adult customers.
A pack of PottyCover sells for $5.99 and it is available on Amazon, Ebay, all Buy Buy Babystores around the country and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores."
I was recently given a pack of PottyCovers for free, to review for my blog. The following is my opinion, and mine alone. The fact that I received these for free did not influence my review.
The potty covers come in a handy zippered package, with 6 individual covers in each package. When they came in, I immediately put 2 packs in my diaper bag. Since we were leaving to go to New York City for a day trip, I figured I should bring some in case we need to use a bathroom on the way down or back.
We did use one, and I was not able to get a picture of it on the toilet, unfortunately. But, it did stay on the toilet, and it kept Sofia from touching the nasty public toilet with her bare skin or with her clothing. The front flap went almost to the floor, while the sides covered about halfway down the bowl so that she could have held on to the sides if she needed to.
The top is made of a soft, non-woven material while the back is a layer of plastic to keep it waterproof. This means, no more wiping someone elses pee off of the toilet seat. No more going from stall to stall to find one that looks the cleanest. Just put this down, and go!
Because it does have plastic, and because it's rather large, you cannot flush this. It's a bit tricky trying to figure out how to take it off the toilet without touching the underside. I pulled it from the long flap hanging in the front, and tried to roll/fold it as I pulled it off, so that the top was on the outside. Wasn't too hard, but did take a bit of time to figure out the best way. Small price to pay instead of worrying about sitting on a public toilet, or hovering.
I definitely will be making sure that I always have at least one with me at all times.
