Toilet seat covers disposable sanitary items commonly found in public restrooms. They are intended to protect the users of the toilet from germs left by other users. Therefore, it is essential to have a toilet seat cover for our restrooms. However while buying a toilet seat, one of the first thing to consider is the type of materials. Generally speaking, this comes down to Plastic (PP) and Urea Formaldehyde (UF), which of them are both the two popular materials on the market.
