Now, let’s get some stats. In a lifespan of 80 years, you spend 13 months on a toilet seat. That’s quite a lot of time isn’t it? And if you love to travel as much as I do, chances are that you will encounter public restrooms as well, away from the comfort of your home. And let us accept that most public restrooms are not hygienic. I have travelled around India and abroad and I have faced not-so-clean restrooms.
So if you had no choice, but to use a public restroom, what would you do? Hold the urge to pee and wait till you discovered a clean toilet? Or use a toilet seat sanitizer? “What? Is there something like this in the market?” was what a friend asked when I told her to pick it up before she went for a trek.
Not many people are aware that there are some really best toilet seat sanitizers in India. And trust me, I have been using them from the past few years, all I can say is that it is one step closer to maintaining hygiene. Before I go on, let me share this post that was written by Quint Fit a few days ago. Click to read here.
What is a toilet seat sanitizer?
A toilet seat sanitizer helps to sanitize the washroom and the commode before you use it. A toilet seat sanitizer can help to protect you from any possible infections and toilet borne disease. Most toilet seat sanitizers can be used on the faucets as well that ensures you have a very clean experience when you use a public restroom. I also use a toilet sanitizer in my bathrooms for a cleaner experience. Well, the added benefit is that if you have guests at home, you can be assured that even they are having a clean experience in your washrooms!

Best Toilet Seat Sanitizers in India
As with most of my compilation posts, I will add to them as when I discover new brands. As I write this post, let me share with you my list of best toilet seat sanitizers in India. These are brands that I have used in the past few months. Using a toilet seat sanitizer is simple; shake the can well and spray on the toilet seat from a distance of at least two feet. Wait for at least 10 seconds to let it dry completely before using it.
If you have read my earlier posts, I have talked about Herbal Strategi. They have an array of chemical free products for home. Plus a chemical-free sanitizer is something I hadn’t come across. This one is very mildly scented and works really well. As with most toilet seat sanitizers, this one needs to be sprayed on the toilet seat. It has antibacterial, fungicidal and antimicrobial properties, which help keep viruses, bacteria and fungus at bay. Thanks to its natural, plant-based ingredients, it does not cause any side effects while eliminating 99.9% of germs. Priced at 198 for a pack of two 50 ml bottles, this is available on Amazon India.

ARINGEL – SIT SAFE
More often than not when I travel, you’ll find my Kindle, a book and a toilet seat sanitizer in my sling bag. I was sent this pack of 3 toilet seat sanitizers called Sit Safe. It was one of the toilet seat sannitizers that I carried with me when I travelled to Dharamsala and McLeodganj. Most of these small towns are low on cleanliness because of the surge of tourists that visit these places. While we ensured that we had stayed in one of the best places, using the washroom was always a risk. Not just for me but this was used even by my boys who ensured that they wanted a “clean loo” experience. Sit Safe is available on Amazon India. Click to buy this now.
RUNBUGZ TOILET SEAT SANITIZER SPRAY
This is a brand I discovered recently. Apart from a fabulous toilet seat sanitizer, they also have a range of mosquito repellents that are very effective. I have used this a few times till now, mostly at home. Yes, you can use a toilet seat sanitizer in the bathrooms at your home too! Trust me, it doubles the cleaner experience. And it makes the guests who use the bathroom a lot more comfortable to use the loo too. I love the fragrance of this one. It refreshes up the entire restroom too. This is another toilet seat sanitizer that is safe to spray on faucets and taps as well to disinfect them. Priced at INR 200, this 75 ml toilet seat sanitizer can be bought on Amazon India.
Peesafe is the first toilet seat sanitizer in India. I have been using this for over 3 years now. This tiny can not only cleanses, but also sanitizes and deodorizes too. It has been my travel companion to many countries and cities too! The minty fragrance is actually fresh and lasts long enough to not gag you with the foul odours that are commonly found lingering in public restrooms. Whether you are at a mall, an airport or even at a friend’s home, use PeeSafe to sanitize the bathrooms. Yet another toilet seat sanitizer that I also use at home to sanitize the toilets completely.

O TOILET SEAT SANITIZER
This toilet seat sanitizer is by far the most convenient to carry. Its a teeny, slim can that can also fit in your jeans pocket. You don’t even need to dunk it in your bag. I would say that this makes a perfect travel companion if you are going for a short holiday. It is blended with tea tree oil that is a known anti-bacterial agent that gives protection on the go without soap. Tea tree oil also acts as a natural deodorizer that automatically cleanses the surroundings. Priced at INR 440, this pack of 4 toilet seat sanitizers is available on Amazon India.
A safe & hygienic toilet is a necessity for everyone. The existing condition of public toilets is not very hygienic and thus it makes you dreadful in using them. People do not always have the opportunity to carry out their needs in a hygienic, comfortable environment and here arises the need of the product which helps you in making your toilet experiences safer and easier. LooSpray provides overall toilet hygiene by sanitizing, cleansing and deodorizing the toilet seat and its surrounding areas. This was another companion in my recent travels. Priced at INR 120, this can lasts at least 60 uses. Buy from Amazon India now.
Potshot Toilet Seat Sanitizer
This one is actually an interesting combo. No, I have not used it as yet but the idea of a toilet seat sanitizer along with flushable toilet seat covers is pretty intriguing. You can carry either or both of them for ensuring a clean bathroom experience. I am assuming that this would be like the other toilet seat sanitizers available in the market. . You can buy this from Amazon India here.
