I was cleaning the toilet this morning, going around all the knobs and hinges and the things on the bottom of the seat, etc., and I thought, "Surely, with all the smart people there are in the world, someone could design a toilet with fewer places to catch dirt!"

So, does anyone know of any like that? I mean, that don't cost a fortune....

Added: Well, I found this, http://www.homedepot.com/p/American-...937&cj=truebut it still has the base and the place on the bottom where it bolts to the floor, which is where I find a lot of dirt/hair.

I wonder if the kind that attach to the wall, with no base, would be better? Certainly would be easier to clean the floor around it.

Another edit: I found this article, it was good: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/20014...clean-bathroom

I thought of a modification to the "modern" toilet years ago. The bowl rim is almost 2 inches thick and completely horizontal where urine from men rests on there and stains and stinks. Why don't they make the rim angle downward into the bowl so the urine runs down and drips off into the toilet? It's like a flat porch deck board after it rains the water just sits there just like the urine on the toilet rim.

Either that or make the rim much thinner. Then you would have to figure a way to better support the toilet seat.

On a final note i can't believe i'm talking about toilet inventions

I find it funny that people think you can just chunk a floor mount toilet for a wall mount- HA!

You could buy 10 toilets for the price of converting one! A little ****-n-span and elbow grease don't sound so bad after all, huh?

"I wonder if the kind that attach to the wall, with no base, would be better? Certainly would be easier to clean the floor around it."

Wall hung toilets and "saluting" seats are sometimes used in commercial restrooms. They have their own set of problems. Typically, the underside of the toilet gets really grotty and overtopping can run back along the wall. There are also support and seal issues.

If you want something easy to clean, this style is either mop down or hose down:

We are renovating our home and I found a really nice SMOOTH sided toilet at Lowes. No curly cues to catch dust and muck.

I got a one piece toilet, which is pretty easy to keep clean but mostly I avoid going into my son's bathroom if at all possible. ;-)
