Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2007131315A1] A disposable sanitary cover for a toilet and methods of using the cover. The cover includes a continuous single sheet dimensioned to cover a seat of the toilet and has a front portion, first and second side portions, and a rear portion, all surrounding a generally central opening of the sheet. The sheet may comprise a material which substantially dissolves in response to being placed in a water-based liquid having a temperature within a pre-selected temperature range. The cover may be secured to the seat by means of first and second side overhanging portions of the sheet which are operable to be tucked underneath the seat. The sheet may have a front overhanging portion enveloping front portions of the seat and toilet and connected to the first and second side overhanging portions to form a pocket. The sheet may have at least one protrusion oriented to protrude in a direction away from the toilet, and operable to be used as a sanitary grip to facilitate removal of the sheet from the toilet seat.
