Toilet Seat Damage

Whenever you see two dots on a toilet seat like this, there's a very good chance that the damage was caused from the protrusions on the toilet seat lid cover. A toilet seat and the picture above is made from wood and is painted with a high gloss enamel.

Like most paint, it can be chipped and scratched. You can always use touch up paint to fill the damage spots in, if it's something that bothers you. It's only cosmetic damage at this point.

These toilet seats can be replaced for under $20 and it's something that most homeowners can do with very little effort. The toilet seat is attached with two plastic nuts underneath the toilet bowl lip. Simply loosen and remove the two nuts that are connecting the toilet seat to the toilet bowl, removed the toilet seat and replace it with a new one.

In the picture above, I circled the area where the toilet seat lid protrusion is damaged. This could have been caused by someone slamming the toilet lid down, a little too abruptly, but the most common cause of this type of damage is from someone standing on top of the toilet seat lid cover.
