Friend has a toilet seat cover - on the actual seat not the lid. AIBU or is that gross? I cringed as I half sat / half hovered over it. It is like the fluffy pile cover of a bathroom mat but like all flattened from people sitting on it.

Thats disgusting confused

Feminine Mon 28-Oct-13 20:16:16

Wow! the last time I saw one of those was around 1984!

Is there a Victorian dolly hiding the toilet roll under her petticoats in there too?grin

Feminine Mon 28-Oct-13 20:17:27

You might want to nab it... a shabby toilet seat could make a small fortune on ebay!

Rollermum Mon 28-Oct-13 20:17:43

Is it so your bum doesn't get cold? But so absorbent...

Dahlen Mon 28-Oct-13 20:17:46

<shudder> Is it her way of ensuring her DH has good aim? After all, if he has to sit on it for a poo, he's way less likely to piss all over the seat.

Objection Mon 28-Oct-13 20:18:15

surprised it hasnt scuttled away to pastures new. Bleurgh

Delayingtactic Mon 28-Oct-13 20:28:20

Ugh that's truly disgusting.

AHardDaysWrite Mon 28-Oct-13 20:31:25

My grandma used to have those when we were kids. When my brother was learning to go to the loo by himself he did a poo and somehow missed the bowl and sat in the poo, on the fluffy seat. She got rid of them after that grin

FreshBloodandGutsLeticia Mon 28-Oct-13 20:46:13

Hahaha, my ex-MIL (bless her soul) had a shit-brown furry cover on the lav seat for all of the 20ish years I knew her.
I never knew whether she ever took it off to wash it grin

'Twas truly grim.

lucjam Mon 28-Oct-13 20:56:26

Dear God, you think you've seen it all, blurgh, shudder.

phantomnamechanger Mon 28-Oct-13 20:58:25

only today I was remembering the piss soaked cover on the loo lid in a house we once bought - the first thing I did was remove the whole seat and go buy a new one in B&Q. but OMG a loo seat cover is just rank.

Eeew, why would you do that?!

phantomnamechanger Mon 28-Oct-13 20:59:03

PMSL chaos!!!!!

phantomnamechanger Mon 28-Oct-13 21:00:46

I wonder if the queen has one of those posh, lace edged quilted jobbies?

Charles apparently has his own white leather loo seat that travels with him. That's bad enough!

FixItUpChappie Mon 28-Oct-13 21:04:32

That is so disgusting!!!!! WHHHHHYYYYYY??????!!

MsVestibule Mon 28-Oct-13 21:04:45

I rarely say this, (mainly because I'm not 15) but:


That is the most vile, unhygienic, disgusting loo related article I have ever seen in my life.

LittleTulip Mon 28-Oct-13 21:07:15

Ahahahaha can you imagine the stickiness and the stench! ��

Raddy Mon 28-Oct-13 21:10:09

God, that's disgusting.

Is your friend 95?

Bigfingers Mon 28-Oct-13 21:16:03


Did you say anything to your friend, OP? I wouldn't have been able to stop myself!!

Jolleigh Mon 28-Oct-13 21:20:09

A not too intelligent family member used to have one of these. A horrible pink one. Until she asked me why I always went home to use the loo and I wasn't too kind with my answer.

Why anyone would buy something so grim I'll never know. envy

She is late 20s, not 95. And no, I didn't mention it - just but h about it on here! She's just one of those pepper less fussed by this sort of thing.

So glad I'm not the only one!

SomethingOnce Mon 28-Oct-13 21:44:41


And while we're on the subject of absorbent materials in the loo zone, carpet is not acceptable.

nomorecrumbs Mon 28-Oct-13 22:00:20

Ohh a friend of mine had one of these when I was at school and visiting her house. I covered my hand with loo roll, pulled it off and put it on the floor. Then forgot to put it back on and got in trouble grin I thought it was some kind of toilet decoration, it was that kind of house!

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 16:23:19

Where would one even purchase one of those!

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 16:25:55

Ha just seen the links,haaa theyre delighful.....cough.

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 16:26:20

Its kind of accessorising gone too far.

ifyourehoppyandyouknowit Tue 29-Oct-13 16:29:02

I feel the need to knit one of these now.

ifyourehoppyandyouknowit Tue 29-Oct-13 16:29:22

I'd use a cheapy acrylic wool, so it was washable.


MrsMook Tue 29-Oct-13 16:35:55

I'd forgotten about fluffy toilet lid covers. Never come across one on the seat before. (Lifts eyes to Heaven and says ta)

Can anyone crochet me the steering wheel cover? I can't crochet.
<falls off chair laughing>

angelinajelly Tue 29-Oct-13 16:40:10

This is the most disgusting thing I've read since the bog brush in the dishwasher. What is it about this site and poo-related threads?

And why are they so completely compelling?

Rollermum Tue 29-Oct-13 16:42:14

Glad I c

Rollermum Tue 29-Oct-13 16:43:37

Glad I could contribute to a great MN tradition Angelina! grin

LynetteScavo Tue 29-Oct-13 16:44:27

Elderly relatives I hardly ever visited had one in the 80's. It was peach coloured.

They also had a pretty doll on the cistern....I picked it up and a roll of loo paper fell down the loo. How was I supposed to know it was a "toilet roll cover"? I put pulled the loo roll from the toilet and put it back, soaking wet, under the doll. Do you think they ever figured out it was me? confused

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 17:17:44

I dont even like them mats that go around the bottom.of the toilet of the floor,i do wonder does the fabric contain wee wee.

Bumblequeen Tue 29-Oct-13 18:29:04

Errgh! How unhygienic.

Carpets and fluffy covers do not belong in a bathroom.

Akifden Tue 29-Oct-13 20:35:05

Yuck! Agree nothing fluffy in the bathroom. Made me laugh, I've seen it all now!

TillyTotter1 Tue 29-Oct-13 20:42:42


mousmous Tue 29-Oct-13 20:45:29

my aunt (in 80's US) had a soft plastic cover for the loo seat. it made a sort of pffffffffffffffffffft sound when sitting down and stuck to your cheeks.
I think it was pink with frills that made a pretty pattern on your thighs

JamNan Tue 29-Oct-13 20:56:56

I once came across one of these in the States. It frightened the life out of me!

automatic toilet seat cover FFS!

WhizzFucker Tue 29-Oct-13 20:57:43

Those poo-coloured crochet toilet seat covers look like just the thing for xmas presents to people you hate.

JamNan Tue 29-Oct-13 21:02:42

Gawd so traumatised I didn't finish my post.

OP I am dying to know what colour it was and if (whispers) it was slimy at all?

Rollermum Tue 29-Oct-13 22:14:08

That automatic one! Wow!

The cover I encountered was cream. It was dusty, poss contained a small haul of pubes (didn't confirm, just went to my mental safe place) but not slimy!

hottiebottie Tue 29-Oct-13 23:20:34

Found a knitted seat cover on the same site as the crochet one. This one's got an even smaller hole to aim at! grin

Dawndonnaagain Tue 29-Oct-13 23:21:21

Right, that's all the presents sorted this year, a crochet pattern each! grin

Merel Tue 29-Oct-13 23:45:43

Grim, just grim.

Rollermum Tue 29-Oct-13 23:48:39

'Cold stool' - they could have put that better.

Boardingblues Tue 29-Oct-13 23:49:34

I think that a cold stool is a sign of being dead.

BeCoolFucker Tue 29-Oct-13 23:51:18

Off the wall gross. The toilet is no room for any kind of soft furnishings. What are they thinking?

LittleBearPad Tue 29-Oct-13 23:52:17

Oh my god.

They're horrific

The germs, the smell. Yucccccckkkkkkkk

Boardingblues Tue 29-Oct-13 23:56:28

Perhaps the idea is that one has ones own and merely whips it on before bearing buttocks and off again before the flush...?

BMW6 Wed 30-Oct-13 08:31:50


"When you go to the cold stool" !!!!

FruOla Wed 30-Oct-13 09:13:51

They are all utterly vile - albeit rather hilarious!

That rotating thing looks terrifying grin

HALLOsolohowyouWEEN Wed 30-Oct-13 10:22:52

Getting my knitting needles out immediately!!! and I think I'll make a matching cushion. And perhaps a footstool!! might as well be comfy grin ----> envy VOM

Crowler Wed 30-Oct-13 10:25:37

I've just had such a good laugh reading this thread.

Your friend is BONKERS.

dontsqueezetheteabag Wed 30-Oct-13 11:47:27

Why on EARTH would anyone have one of these?!

On the seat?!
