How Do I Clean a Plastic Elevated Toilet Seat?

I have an elevated toilet seat because I have trouble sitting all the way down. That said, I also have trouble in getting myself clean. I have several illness issues. Not to tell my business, but I do the best I can with what I've got. The seat is stained and it won't come off. I've used SOS pads and Mr. Clean eraser. I also clean when it has gotten soiled. Any ideas appreciated.

It's recommended not to use any harsh chemicals on an elevated toilet seat, because theres a special wax or seal on it.

I'd try making a natural bleach and using warm water. Here's a good natural bleach you can give a try.

Make a paste of baking soda and water. Pick up paste on a folded paper towel. Rub the paste on all stained areas and leave for 10 minutes.

Rub badly stained areas vigorously. Rinse with warm water and let dry before use.

You do not say if your toilet seat is hard or soft plastic and each could benefit by different methods of cleaning.
Either type surface can be damaged by using abrasive or strong bleach as both have protective coatings and once those surfaces are damaged they will get dirty quicker and the stains will be more difficult to remove.
Some recommendations for either type; baking soda mixed with vinegar is safe and works most of the time; Formula 409; Soft Scrub; Mr Clean; maybe Barkeepers Friend.

Here are a couple of links that have some good suggestions to try. Having a spray bottle of white vinegar/water often may help when a full cleaning is not necessary.

If the stain is from organic matter, you will need to remove it. you can remove organic matter with a product like Natures Miracle or Rid-x. there are many other brands. make sure the product has live spores of bacteria.

these spores will come alive and develop into the good bacteria when they are in the presence of moisture and organic matter. they will eat the organic matter and stop reproducing when the food source, the organic matter, is gone.

apply the solution and cover with a plastic bag to keep the area moist. It may take a few days, or several treatments . You should see the stain getting lighter and lighter.

Since the bacteria is harmless you can spritz the toilet seat once in a while and let it dry on its own. I mean don't dry it with a towel. That should act as a preventative measure.

This is especially good to spray around the base of the toilet and nearby floor, especially for little boys who may "miss" the toilet.

Caution. When using these beneficial products do not use bleach or oxy-clean or any product that may kill the bacteria. You can use them in between times.

If the stain is from iron which is in the organic matter, try using lemon juice or vinegar, ie something acidic. Best of luck.
