Squishy Toilets

Product DetailsIt's come to my attention that for some inexplicable reason, a chosen few have stumbled across MichiGal by typing into their Google search bars the term "squishy toilets."

This puzzles me. I did do that post about our 1950's bathroom, but I'm fairly certain I've never written about squishy toilets. However, I certainly don't want to disappoint anyone who is here looking for information about squishy toilets. I know the frustration of Googling some odd little obscure phrase and being unable to find anything relevant in your search results. 

So, a few words about squishy toilets.

When I think of squishy toilets, I think about those vinyl toilet seats that invariably crack on the sides sooner or later, exposing the inner padding which is, frankly, not attractive. Plus those hard edges can be quite uncomfortable. If a tear occurs right on top of the seat, which sometimes happens, well it's just a matter of time before the whole thing is shot to hell and you find yourself needing to buy a replacement toilet seat. Plus there's that sensation of deflating the air out of a balloon every time you sit down.

My advice? Look beyond the padded, or squishy if you will, toilet seats. Don't do it. You may be tempted by what you think is an added measure of comfort, but I'm telling you, it's a lie. That seat might be soft and lush at first, but not for long. And then you'll be back to square one.

If "squishy toilets" means something entirely different to you, well then I can only apologize and wish you well on your continued search. Also, if any of my friends has and loves a squishy toilet seat, no offense. I think we can agree to disagree on this matter.
