The Washie® SMART Toilet Seat is Making It Safe to Go in Public Restrooms Again

Mar 15, 2022

Washie replaces paper toilet seat covers at hospitals, NBA arenas, airports and other public restrooms by offering seats with a hands-free sensor that dispenses an alcohol-based cleaning solution March 15, 2022 06:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time SALT LAKE CITY--( BUSINESS WIRE )--When nature calls, no one likes to go in public restrooms. That’s starting to change with the Washie Toilet Seat , the first-ever SMART toilet seat with a hands-free sensor that dispenses an alcohol-based cleaning solution to wipe the seat down before and after use. Washie launched nationwide this year and the SMART toilet seats are already in use at high-traffic restrooms in more than 30 facilities, including hospitals, NBA arenas, airports, event centers and office buildings throughout the Western U.S. Washie ends the internal debate of whether to wait or go in a public restroom. Public health experts poo-poo the notion that paper toilet seat covers make going to the bathroom safer--and actually make things worse. They also found that people who hover over the toilet seat is a less sanitary option. “People hate wrestling with paper toilet seat covers that absorb liquid and often fall into the toilet bowl,” said Rob Poleki, founder of Washie. “Washie users have a cleaner, fresher and more hygienic restroom experience.” Poleki invented and patented Washie after partnering with Idaho State University to test the functionality of the toilet seat. He came up with the idea after trying to take his four-year-old son to the bathroom at an airport and struggling to use soap and toilet paper to clean the toilet seat. A survey of 300 people found most people face the same dilemma at public restrooms: 75% are unsatisfied with paper toilet seat covers 82% are wiping seats down with toilet paper 85% prefer the Washie Toilet Seat over the paper covers After meeting Washie’s founder, Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce Senior Account Manager Paul Fleming upgraded the chamber’s sanitation policies by adding air sanitizers and Washie Toilet Seats to their building. “Washie Toilet seats provide a clean experience that has taken off with other businesses around the area,” said Fleming. “When we have visitors to our chamber, which is quite frequent now, it is always fun to ask how our guests like their restroom experience.” The public can also use Washie at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Mountain America Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah, Boise Centre in Boise, Idaho, and the Pocatello Regional Airport in Idaho. About Washie Toilet Seat Washie Toilet Seat is the first SMART toilet seat that dispenses an alcohol-based cleaning solution to wipe the seat down before and after use. The product is designed for high traffic public restrooms in airports, hospitals, stadiums, arenas, convention centers and office spaces, and eliminates the need for paper seat covers, providing users with a more sanitary experience and greater peace of mind. Washie is headquartered in Pocatello, Idaho, with offices in Salt Lake City. For more information, visit . Contacts
