Can anyone help me please?! Put asda bleach down the loo last night before bed. Anyway, got up today and all the centre of the loo seat lid and the inside rim of the loo seat has gone yellow! It must have been from the bleach I put down the toilet. I never got any bleach on the toilet seat. Has this happenned to anyone and if so how did you get rid of it? I called the supermarket customer service who I got it from (its own brand) and they said to take the bleach bottle to the store and a photo of the loo seat and an estimate for a cost of repair. He said they will send the bleach off to be tested. I cant understand how the seat got stained, but its ruined and I only put the new loo seat on a few weeks ago

I wonder if it's something to do with the new seat, is it wood? perhaps it's not properly treated and bleach fumes have got into the grain? I sometimes use Asda bleach and have never had a problem. I don't use it very often though as it's bad for the enviroment and bad for your lungs.
At least Asda seem to be willing to sort it out though.

It sounds like as you put the bleach down the toilet, (I would only imagine you used a fair quantity) that following you placing the toilet seat lid back down into its closed position, the air trapped inside the toilet and the fumes of the very strong bleach, have effectively risen (similar to condensation) and have in the particles that have risen, bleached your toilet seat. The yellow discoloration is exactly that which is left be bleach residue. And although you are quite right to say that you didn't get bleach 'on' to the seat, the bleach has discoloured the seat by coming into contact with it via the fumes.
If you look at the instructions on bleach bottles and similar (not in any way meaning this to sound sarcastic - just as most people forget) it NORMALLY - note not always, but normally says use only in WELL VENTILATED areas. (Or similar)

This is for this very reason, that without such, the bleach if inhaled can cause damage to yourself, and if the fumes come into contact with delicate materials it can and will bleach them too.
If you didn't shut the toilet seat - then i would imagine it is because you sht the door and their wasn't enough ventilation.
The best advice is that of which you have alredy have had from the shop in question - I am sure that they will act sympatehitically for you.

Good luck.

asda will sort it out-they wont send it anywhere for testing btw-they just tell people this-it will get chucked straight in the bin as soon as you leave the store. Wait a coupla weeks they will write,say its been tested,no fault found but as a gesture of goodwill they will give you vouchers to the value of the toilet seat.

oh really? Well if I get a new loo seat I am not bothered. Its wood toilet seat from wilkinsons, but covered in plastic or something (its white - or was!!!).

Thanks, I did close the lid. I also tried cleaning the loo seat today with the bleach, a tiny bit diluted as per instructions and it marked seat yellow again. Think its a rubbish toilet seat

. . . . which, as you said earlier, has some kind of plastic covering and you bought it from Wilkinson's.

That could be the answer! You have got to the bottom of your mystery. :whistling:

Some Wilkinson's products are good quality - but not all.

When you get your compensation from the shop, put it towards a better quality seat. Good luck!

I have exaclty the same problem, white seat going yellow and looks yuk Supplier in this case BATHSTORE blame bleach, but I do not use it. In my book the seat is not fit for purpose and according to the sale of goods act, an item should be fit for purpose. BATHSTORE only offer a 12 month guarantee which says alot about their product. My other WC no problem at all so it seems the BATHSTORE product is not fit for purpose - I intend to take my case up with trading standards but am not hopefull of a result
