    Has anyone found an effective disposable pedestal mat? I’m constantly washing and drying our toilet floor as my husband can’t aim. I’ve tried a coloured light which helped briefly but as he also has Parkinson’s his aim is rubbish. He refuses to sit down and denies that he made the mess. Help!!!

    I wish! My dad does the same and of course it isn't him either! I just use washable ones. I've tried cutting a pet pad to fit but dad just moves them. Maybe you'll have more luck.

    I've also read about people cutting pet pads to for (and maybe taping them down) but haven't done this myself. I hope others with more expertise will be along to offer suggestions.

    Same problem here...but I don’t use a pedestal mat at all. Just frequently clean the floor with anti bac.

    Fortunately we have wooden floors and no mats as it's a fall hazard. Kitchen roll and anti bacterial does it for me
