Toilets attract not only dirt and grime, but also dust, even if the toilet is not used on a regular basis. Keeping your toilet, its Bemis-brand seat and the area under the toilet seat clean is a challenging task. Bemis toilet seats contain quick-to-remove hinges that allow you access to the area under the seat where dust and dirt collects. Although different Bemis seats have slightly different removal procedures, no special tools are required.
