I feel like I have been on a nonstop pottytraining cycle for the past 5 years. Probably because I have been! It seems like by the time I got one of my boys out of diapers, it was time to start training the next one. My fourth and final potty-trainee is loving the recent changes we made to our toilet. Check out a couple of DIY toilet upgrades anyone can get done in minutes!
I received products including the Kohler No Touch Flush kit and Transitions toilet seat in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. This blog post may contain affiliate links.
Turn any toilet into a No-Touch Flush.
I bet you thought you needed to buy a whole new toilet to get the No-Touch Flush feature – I know I did! But guess what? You can actually turn your current toilet into a No-Touch Flush with a Kohler Touchless Toilet Flush Kit. The easy-to-install kit retrofits your toilet so that it becomes a Touchless Flush.
Once it is installed, all you have to do to flush the toilet is hold your hand over the sensor. That will activate the flush. No more touching the toilet handle, which means touching LESS GERMS. This is awesome for adults and children. I especially like it for young children who are still learning how to wash their hands.
It takes about 15 minutes to get the Kohler Touchless Flush Kit installed. And, just so you know, the flush is battery-operated (AA batteries). That means you can still flush the toilet even if the electricity goes out. AND you can still flush the “old-fashioned way” using the handle.
My kids used to be extremely forgetful when it comes to flushing the toilet. I don’t know if it’s a kid thing or a boy thing, but I am always reminding them to flush. I can’t tell you how many times I have to tell everyone, “You do not need my permission to flush the potty. Please flush the potty ESPECIALLY if you poop in it.” I have noticed a lot more flushing going on since we installed the No-Touch flush kit. Even I have to admit a No-Touch toilet flush is a lot more fun to use than a regular ole handle. Score one for Kohler!
Every family should upgrade to Kohler’s Kid-Friendly Toilet Seats.
My little one refused to sit on the toilet – he was scared he would fall in! Nothing I could say would convince him otherwise. But there was something I could DO to change his mind. I installed a Kohler Transitions® Quiet-Close™ with Grip-Tight toilet seat. This DIY toilet upgrade took even less time than it did to install the No-Touch Flush. I removed our old toilet seat and attached the new Kohler toilet seat in less than five minutes from start to finish.
This toilet seat is really two seats in one. There is a seat to fit adults and a child-sized seat. The kids toilet seat can be raised up or lowered down as needed. The built-in potty seat has already worked wonders in our pottytraining routine. My son feels comfortable and secure enough to sit on the potty now. We’re one step closer to potty training success. Thank you, Kohler!
I like that the lid is IMPOSSIBLE for my kids to slam. I didn’t realize just what that “Quiet-Close” in the name was all about until we put the toilet seat on. The lid closes slowly and quietly – a big difference from our other toilet lids. I want to upgrade ALL of our toilet seats to the Quiet-Close. A lot of lid-slamming goes on around here for some reason. The Quiet-Close can put a stop to that.
As you can see, small upgrades like these can make a big difference for your family, especially if you are potty-training a child. A Touchless Toilet is easy, convenient and means less germs getting spread around the house. The Transitions Quiet Close with Grip-Tight toilet seat is designed to be easy-to-clean and easy for everyone in the family to use.
Could your toilet use an upgrade? What do you think about the Kohler Touchless Toilet Flush Kit? Could a Kohler Transitions Quiet-Close with Grip-Tight toilet be the pottytraining help you need?
