Claims:
1. I claim a sanitation shield for creating a seal between the seat and the bowl of a toilet apperatus comprising: (a) a flexible piece of rubber material of sufficient size, (b) an adhesive substance of equal length applied to the rubber to be used as backing so as to adhere the material, (c) several different deodorizing scents to be manufactured into said product.

Description:
[0001] The product is designed to sit on the rim of your toilet in the front, so that it creates a seal between the seat and the rim of the bowl. The reason for this is, so that when a person (especially one of male gender) sits to use the toilet and does not hold themselves, the urine doesn't end up going between the seat and the bowl, ending up on the floor at the base of the comode.

[0002] For instance if you are potty training a small boy, they do not know until they are taught that they are supposed to hold themself down when they are sitting to use the toilet. Even then they may not do it every time. Also the “P-Stop” would serve to be very beneficial in a home where an elderly man that may have in his past had a stroke, or possibly an individual that has alzheimers disease. People with these types of conditions may not be able to, or they may not remember to hold themselves down while sitting to use the bathroom.

[0003] This item which we have come up with called The “P-Stop” will help with sanitation and odors in household everywhere around the world.

DESCRIPTION OF THE “P” STOP

[0004] This item which I have invented is a shield or a guard so to speak, it is called a “P” Stop. The “P” Stop is to be made of rubber or a rubber-like material with an adhesive backing. This item is designed to adhere to the rim of the toilet bowl to create a seal between the seal and the bowl, so as to keep urine from ending up on the floor at the base of the comode, when one of male gender sits to use the bathroom and doesn't hold themself down. For example let's say you were potty training a small boy, they do not know how to hold themself down until they are shown how, even after being shown they don't remember to do so every time. The “P” Stop would also serve to be very beneficial in homes of elderly men, male stroke victims, or alzheimers patients. These persons may not be capable of, or they may not remember to hold themself, depending on their individual circumstances. Therefore my invention (The “P” Stop) will help with odor problems and with sanitation issues in households across the world. The “P” Stop can also be produced in various colors, and be scented with different smells ranging from baby powder to potpourri.
