Okay, my dear experienced advisers, I have been shopping shopping shopping online for a toilet riser and can't decide what will work best. I need to order one soon; my surgery is next Friday. Reading the reviews in the Amazon listings, it seems keeping the darn things clean is a major issue. Also I have a "thing" about putting the toilet seat down before flushing. There's research showing the spray from flushing goes all over the place including on your toothbrush (yuck yuck yuck yuck yuck) if you don't put the darned seat down before flushing. But most of the offered risers just sit on top of the existing seat and there's no way to put the lid down. I see a few offered that you install under the seat with long bolts that go through both the riser and the seat on top, and then you can lower the lid, but the reviews complain that those bolts get rusted on and you do still have to dismantle everything in order to clean it now and then, then put it back together again. So I don't know what to do. What if I just get a framework with arms that help me lift myself up, without using a riser, too? Will that be enough assistance do you think? If not, can someone point me in the direction of a riser with arms and closable toilet lid design, and that's easy to keep clean? Is there such a thing?
