Replacement Toilet Lids and Seats - This $15 gadget makes your toilet glow, and people love it way more than they should - This Old Toilet 650-483-1139
Yes, I can certainly see the appeal of the LumiLux Advanced 16-Color Motion Sensor LED Toilet Bowl Night Light. Is it really deserving of all the buzz it’s getting right now though? Okay fine, maybe it is. This fun little gadget installs in no time and it ensures that you can always see your target when you stumble into the bathroom late at night. You can set it to glow in any one of 16 different colors, change the color as often as you want, and it turns on automatically when you lift the lid!
Here’s the scoop from the product page:
- MOTION AND LIGHT DETECTION SENSOR – The built in motion sensor detects body heat to automatically illuminate the room when you enter and shut off when you leave. The light detection sensor will deactivate the LED light the instant it detects light is on to maximize battery life.
- 16 LED COLORS – You can choose a fixed color to fit your mood or choose carousel mode which will cycle seamlessly through every shade of color inside your toilet bowl when activated. Kids love the glowing water of their lighted potty! Colors include blue, teal, red, purple, indigo, green, yellow, amber, orange, white and more.
- FLEXIBLE ARM – The flexible arm can be bent to secure the unit for any size toilet bowl– resting just below the seat lid and onto the rim. The bendable arms provide a more secure fit than other toilet lights with cheap suction cups.
- 5 STAGE DIMMER – Make your toilet bowl nightlight glow as dark or bright as you want by selecting from up to 5 different levels of brightness.
- LIFETIME WARRANTY – LumiLux is your prime source for automatic, illuminated toilet bowl lights. If anything goes wrong with your Lumilux Toilet Night Light we will send you a new one absolutely free.

Replacement Toilet Lids and Seats - Hey, Just Always Close Your Toilet Lid, OK - This Old Toilet 650-483-1139
There’s a common bathroom argument that never fails to rile me up: The issue of whether you should leave the toilet seat up or down after you go (yes, I have a lot opinions on bathroom stuff).
Traditional gender “rules” imply that men leave the seat up because they pee with the seat up, while women leave the seat down for their own bathroom-going reasons. It’s caused many spirited debates in my life, online, and in TV shows and movies. Gender presentation and identity issues aside, I have a problem with this whole argument, and it’s that it’s entirely moot. You know why? Because we should all just shut the toilet lid completely after going to the bathroom. Forget the seat!
If there’s a lid on the toilet (more on that in a minute), then the best thing to do is to shut the lid before flushing. Not only does this shut the book on the seat argument (because closing the lid thereby folds down the seat), it also is more hygienic. Thanks to a lovely-sounding phenomenon called “toilet plume,” a flushing toilet easily spreads fecal matter to the surrounding area, which is particularly bad if you’re sick and using the toilet. Those germy particles can reach a height of 2.7 feet, and even if they’re not the kind of germs that’ll get you sick, they’re also not exactly what you want coating your toothbrush.
Beyond that (*takes off lab coat*), closing the toilet lid whenever it’s not in use is just a smart idea. An open body of water in the bathroom is just begging you to drop in your phone, keys, wallet, or any other toiletries you have hovering nearby. As a clumsy person whose toilet is snuggled right up next to a shelf, I’m always gently (or not so gently) reminding visitors to please shut the lid, lest they have to play a too-literal and not-fun real-life version of Go Fish for Terri’s hairbrush or Sarah’s phone.
This is all, of course, if there is a lid at all. Many public restrooms and some homes and private spaces don’t have a lid. If you live with other people and have no lid, have a conversation about toilet seat expectations before you get into a passive-aggressive war of up vs. down. Outside the home, what you do with the seat is up to you, but keep this in mind: defaulting to putting the seat down means fewer people have the possibility of unwittingly parking their butt right on the rim. And come on, who wants that?
