What a bizarre question!  Believe it or not, we have a buyer who  is in contract to purchase a $1,300,000 home and the seller STILL will not allow their toilet to be used.  Our Broker had to take a "bush" stop outside their property as the issue after a 4 hour inspection got too desperate. Go figure the craziness of some people!

I have just printed up, in LARGE LETTERS, on a piece of colored paper, the message you have above, and taped it to the toilet lid.  I never had any issues of people using the facilities.  It's a quick fix!

Paper bands are not any more effective than a note on a sheet of paper.

If the property is vacant, seal the toilet with tape.

LOL If you put "Sanitized for your protection", on a toilet, a buyer will say how nice that they did this and use it anyway. If you ever want them, you can get 1000 for $19.95 here.

Print a sheet with instructions. I’d then put a potted plant/ficusnext to the toilet, because they’ll need somewhere for relief.

If the listing agent has presented themselves as a 'FULL SERVICE' agent, they will be present for ALL showings and can stand guard over the toilet lid. If they misrepresented themselves as full service and are not present to represent the seller, they should be FIRED.

A good wrap of a roll of plastic wrap from the kitchen cupboard does well also.

Need more such stuff, try ULine.
