CootieGuards Protect Toddlers from Germ-Ridden Public Toilet Seats

Disposable Seat Covers Help Reduce Stresses of Potty Training

Parents who dread the inevitable need to assist their toddlers and young children in public restrooms, now have a new tool that not only fights exposure to germs, but also helps reduce stresses associated with potty training.

Called CootieGuards™, ( these new disposable toilet seat covers completely slip over toilet seats – much like a pillowcase -- protecting kids and parents from germs transmitted by surface-to-skin contact.

The key to CootieGuards’ effectiveness is its patent-pending design, which creates a sanitary, waterproof barrier between children and the toilet seat. CootieGuards completely encapsulate the seat, with side flaps that cover exposed surfaces on the exterior sides of the bowl where children often reach for stability. CootieGuards already come with a center hole designed to support both boys and girls.

One of CootieGuards’ unique design features is that is keeps children weighing up to 60 pounds suspended over the bowl, preventing smaller children from falling through adult-sized toilet seats. When used as directed, CootieGuards will not slip, slide or fall off, and have no adhesive strips that can be bothersome for installation and removal.

The inspiration behind CootieGuards was a classic case of finding a new solution to a common problem facing inventor Jim Martin while potty training his daughter. After more than a year of design, prototype development and patent applications, Martin believes he’s found a better way to help solve what is often a very unpleasant activity.

“Unlike the paper toilet seat covers found in many public restrooms, which are ineffective and difficult to use, CootieGuards give parents peace of mind that their child is not exposed to a plethora of common bacteria and viruses found on public toilets,” Martin said. “Customers who have used CootieGuards particularly like the simple design and the fact that they can be conveniently carried in a purse or diaper bag.”

Single-use CootieGuards are made of FDA-approved food-grade plastic and can discarded or recycled, but should not be flushed.

CootieGuards are available in resealable four-packs for $4.95, and are available online at
