Unless you are the heir to a paper toilet-seat cover company and your parents supply you with fresh paper seat covers by the packs, I am against using these seat covers as blotting sheets. Sure, it happened to all of us; we all thought it was the best thing since sliced bread when we first heard of this nifty trick. What could be better than gigantic blotting sheets that remove unsightly complexion shine, supplied FREE of charge by the facility management of fine public restrooms you do your business in?
Well, there’s just one problem: paper seat cover dispenser has been tested and proven to be one of the dirtiest surfaces in public restrooms. How? Besides having contact with hands of nearly every person that comes into the stall, it is constantly sprayed by the toilet water. When a toilet is flushed, it sends millions of toilet water molecules skyrocketing above. Many of these molecules find their landing place on that dispenser (and that small section of paper cover that is exposed and vulnerable). If you insist on using them in lieu of conventional blotting papers, I recommend buying a fresh pack, they are readily available online.
If you would like a daintier, fit-in-your-purse version of blotting sheets, my favorite is the Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens. $10 for 100 sheets actually beats out many drugstore varieties because they often cost more than $5 for less than 1/3 of the quantity and quality.
