‘The perfect way to protect your posterior in the powder room, SeatGard™ - the revolutionary personal toilet seat spray - has just been launched on-line in the UK’, says Peter Nowell, Marketing Director at Everitime.

Recent research commissioned by Everitime™, the makers of SeatGard™, a new antiviral toilet seat spray – suggests many would rather ‘hover’, than come into contact with a public toilet seat! Of the 2087 people questioned by YouGov, 54% of women said that they had previously chosen to ‘hover’, rather than risk ‘catching something’ when using a public toilet seat.

28% of women have covered the seat with paper before sitting down, and over half of adults - men and women (51%) – told us that they had wiped the seat before use, with only 10% saying they don’t take any sort of precaution at all when using public toilets.

The findings come at a time of year when we start to think more about protecting ourselves from viruses and germs – doing our best to avoid colds, flu, and other assorted bugs.

‘We spent 7 years developing an antiviral & antibacterial formula that is gentle on the skin, yet powerful enough to kill viruses like Herpes and HIV, and bacteria such as E-Coli and C Difficile’, says Peter Nowell, Marketing Director of the Everitime brand.

‘When people use a public convenience, not only do they want an effective antiviral hand wash – like HandGard™ - for use afterwards, but they’d like the same level of protection whilst using the facility too.’

‘Whether the introduction of SeatGard™ will change the way the Great British public answer the call of nature remains to be seen, but for the majority, the craft of hovering could well become a thing of the past!’

SeatGard™ is available in 15ml and 50ml sprays - small enough to be carried in a pocket or a handbag, yet powerful enough to keep the bugs at bay.
