Q: Dear Ed: We're planning a summer cookout at our home and I have some extra money in my party budget. I'd like to do a little upgrade to our bathroom since everyone will be using that room before the day is over. What is a fun, fast and useful bathroom upgrade we can do that will also impress my guests?

A: I do have a fresh idea I can share with you.

I recently worked with new toilet seats that have built-in air freshener systems.

These battery-operated seats can be quickly installed on most existing toilets.

Just make sure to get an elongated or round front model to match the type of toilet you have.

The deodorizing seats I've worked with combine a carbon filter with a micro-fan driven freshener system that also releases a light scent into the bathroom. Other features include slow close seat/lid, grip tight bumpers and even an LED nightlight.

Bottom line: A deodorizing toilet seat can be a fun and affordable upgrade, especially if you're looking to add a little bathroom humor to your party.
