Question

What is the best way to clean toilet seats?


Answer

Pour a modest amount of a quaternary ammonium-based disinfectant/cleaner onto a bowl swab and run it over the top and underside of the seat. Leave the seat upright while you swab out the bowl and trap. Let it all sit for five to ten minutes while you clean the sink, mirror, etc.
Wipe the seat clean with a dedicated cloth and wipe down the other toilet surfaces outside the bowl. Leave the seat up to dry.
