Abstract

A toilet seat cover includes a pair of symmetrical pads. When the pads are placed on a toilet seat, anti-slip portions provided at one side of each of the pads contact the toilet seat and firmly position the pads on the toilet seat so as to reliably prevent direct contact between human skin and the toilet seat. Thus, the toilet seat cover is reliable for sanitary use of public toilets.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Technical Field
  • The present invention relates to toilet seat covers, and more particularly, to a toilet seat cover that can be firmly positioned on a toilet seat and can be easily stored.
  • 2. Description of Related Art
  • It is a common concern that direct contact with toilet seats in public lavatories are potentially unsanitary to health due to bacteria or filth brought by the vast public's frequent use. To address this concern and to ensure use hygiene, a conventional toilet seat cover 1, as depicted in FIGS. 1 and 2, has been developed. The toilet seat cover 1, in use, is to be laid on a toilet seat for preventing direct contact between human skin and the toilet seat surface. However, since the conventional toilet seat cover 1 and the like are simply made of paper, when laid on toilet seats, the toilet seat covers fail to engage with the toilet seats and are likely to slip away before use, thus being unreliable for hygienic purpose. Besides, the conventional toilet seat cover 1 is not reusable and has to be discarded after single use. Therefore, it is evident that use of the traditional toilet seat cover 1 is not only uneconomical, but also adverse to resource preservation and environmental protection.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • A primary objective of the present invention is to provide a toilet seat cover comprising a pair of symmetrical pads. Therein, each said pad has one side provided with at least one anti-slip portion so that when the toilet-seat cover is placed on a toilet seat, the anti-slip portions firmly position the pads on the toilet seat and thereby reliably prevent direct contact between a human body and the toilet seat, thus being reliable for hygienic purpose.
  • A secondary objective of the present invention is to provide the aforementioned toilet seat cover wherein the pads are made of a washable material such as composite cloth, artificial cloth, or non-woven while the anti-slip portions are made of a reusable adhesive material so that the toilet seat cover, after used, can be cleaned for reuse.
  • An additional objective of the present invention is to provide the aforementioned toilet seat cover wherein a bag is provided at one side of one said pad for storing the pads, which have been rolled up, for easy carrying and storage.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The invention as well as a preferred mode of use, further objectives and advantages thereof will be best understood by reference to the following detailed description of illustrative embodiments when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a conventional toilet seat cover;
  • FIG. 2 is a schematic drawing showing the conventional toilet seat cover laid on a toilet seat;
  • FIG. 3 is a perspective view of a toilet seat cover of the present invention;
  • FIG. 4 is a schematic drawing of the toilet seat cover according to a first embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 5 is a schematic drawing showing the disclosed toilet seat cover laid on a toilet seat;
  • FIG. 6 is a schematic drawing showing a pad of the toilet seat cover rolled up; and
  • FIG. 7 provides alternative embodiments of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Please refer to FIGS. 3, 4, 5 and 6 for the appearance, structure and application of a toilet seat cover 2 according to the present invention. As can be seen in the drawings, the toilet seat cover 2 comprises a pair of symmetrical pads 21 that are made of polyester fiber. Each said pad 21 has one side provided with at least one anti-slip portion 22 that is made of a reusable adhesive material. The adhesive material contains 50% to 80% of the mixture of siloxanes and silicone, 20% to 40% of silica gel, and 1.5% to 2.5% of 2,4-Dichlorobenzoyl peroxide. Moreover, one of the pads 21 has a bag 23 formed at an end thereof. In use of the toilet seat cover 2, the two pads 21 are properly placed on a toilet seat 3 with the anti-slip portions 22 thereof contacting and engaging with a surface of the toilet seat 3. Thus, when a user sits on the toilet seat 3, the toilet seat cover 2 serves to prevent direct contact between human skin and the toilet seat 3 so that the user is protected from being smeared by filth and bacteria potentially existing on the toilet seat 3, thereby ensuring hygiene. Meantime, the anti-slip portions 22 facilitate firmly positioning the pads 21 on the toilet seat 3 without fear of unintentional slippage and displacement. Besides, a bag 23 is formed on one of the pads 21 so that the pads 21, after folded or rolled up, can be stored in the bag 23 for easy carrying and storage.
  • FIG. 7 provides additional embodiments of the present invention. According to the drawing, the anti-slip portion 22 may be in the form of a single adhesive tape or plural adhesive tapes partially covering a respective said pad 21 so as to firmly couple the pads 21 with a toilet seat.
  • As compared with the traditional toilet seat cover that has to be discarded after single use, the disclosed toilet seat cover 2, which has the pads 21 made of polyester fiber and the anti-slip portions 22 made of reusable adhesive material, is more economical and environmental friendly for being washable and reusable. In addition, since the bag 23 on the pad 21 serves to store the rolled-up pads 21, the disclosed toilet seat cover 2 is convenient to carry and store.
