How do I clean a wooden toilet seat? Thank you.
I have wooden toilet seats and I just clean them the normal way (soft scrub type soap, water and a rag/brush). You can put some Murphy's Oil Soap on them afterwards, also (I don't know that it has any anti-bacterial type qualities, so I am not suggesting you use it first).
Some of these wooden toilet seats have gold hardware; the "stuff" that attaches it to the commode. These can turn color and look green or brown and ugly real quick as my first one did. So I coated the hardware on my new one with clear fingernail polish. The nail polish prevented that. I think I got that tip from someone else online.
I have a new wooden toilet seat. My last one cracked after a few months. I hope I am cleaning the seat correctly. My concern is how do I disinfect it without ruining it. Thank you everyone.
Just use a sponge or cloth soaked in Lysol. Wring it out first then dry the seat. I have had mine for well over twenty years and it still looks brand new.
