Does at least one person living in your home leave a mess after a trip to the bathroom during the night? It is not fair to generalise but men have enough problem "hitting the spot" in daylight hours let alone at the dead of night. A sleepy adult or child can also cause problems. If any of this sounds all too familiar perhaps a glow--in-the-dark toilet seat could be the answer to your prayers?
The bright at night loo seat is the brainchild of Tim Fittler of Fittler Sales & Marketing. His idea was developed and manufactured in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
During the day the loo seats are white, a popular colour for bathrooms and bathroom fittings these days. As night time falls though the seat colour morphs into a blue or green glow.
Early versions of the glowing toilet seat were a novelty item with only a short span of "light time". The latest glow-in-the-dark seats will be marketed with hotels, nursing homes and hospitals in mind. They should prove a useful addition as in such establishments people are less familiar with their surroundings.
According to the inventor, Tim Fittler, the new NightGlow toilet seat requires minimal light to charge. Fully charged the loo seat offers up to eight hours of "glow". Various light sources can be used to charge the seats. Research and development is ongoing as tougher and more appropriate materials are tested.
Currently the seats retail at around £34.99. We wonder if they have longevity?
