Replacement Toilet Lids and Seats - This motion-activated, germ-fighting toilet light makes going to the bathroom way more groovy - This Old Toilet 650-483-1139
Nighttime trips to the bathroom don't normally elicit much thought. They probably should, since the bathroom's where some of the most accidents in the home happen. Ever fallen or gotten bumps and bruises during a late-night bathroom excursion? Exactly.
That was the line of thinking motivating entrepreneurs Matt Alexander and Mike Kannely, who came up with the IllumiBowl — a motion-activated toilet light that makes finding your way to and using your porcelain throne less fraught with late-night peril. If it sounds familiar, that's because it was featured on ABC's Shark Tank in 2016, during which Alexander and Kannely scored a seed investment in the company.
The IllumiBowl saw success on Shark Tank for the same reason it's remained popular years afterward: it's easy to use and well-designed. Simply set it to one of eight colors (or opt for a color-rotate light mode), and built-in motion sensors will automatically turn it on and off whenever you enter the bathroom. You also can enjoy ultimate customization with the three-stage dimmer — kind of like your own private light show.
On top of that, the Illumibowl is easy to clean and fights bacteria with special light technology, all of which is, of course, important for any toilet accessory. All of which makes it perfect for potty training... or simply set it out to add an extra decorative touch for party guests
