No, really, we are going to discuss toilets today. Really scraping the bottom of the barrel here, right?
The whole point of this is to tell you that it is EASY PEASY to change out a toilet seat, so there is no reason to wait for a husband/significant other/dad to do it for you. Because, let's be honest, they never get it. If you want something new, Get it, Girl! Unless it is the acrylic toilet seat I saw at Lowe’s that had money embedded in it. WTF, why???
Begin by removing the existing seat. Wait, back up. Begin by cleaning the heck out of the toilet. Then move on to removing the seat.
Lift up the back caps that attach the seat to the bowl. When you open them you will see there is a plastic bolt. Reach under the bowl where the screw is and you will feel a nut. Hold the nut and unscrew the bolt. Do this on the other side and remove the seat. Now you’ll want to clean all the stuff you missed. #gross
Open your new seat and hardware that is included with it. You will have two rubber flat pieces, two bolts and two nuts.
The rubber flat pieces go on the bottom of the piece that attaches to the bowl. This keeps it from moving around. Put them in each side with the flat side facing out.
Lift the top of the tabs at the back of the seat.
Remove the nut from the plastic bolt.
Make sure that the holes in the tab and the holes in the bowl line up. Also, make sure that the front of the seat is flush with the front of the bowl.
Place the bolt through the hole on each side. Check alignment again.
Reach to the underside and attach the nut. Hand tighten until it will no longer turn and then use a screwdriver to finish.
Close the tabs, sit back and enjoy.
Now, I just need to find an awesome brass flusher handle (technical term).
