No matter what product you put out there on the market, people will find ways to use it in ways that defy the inventor’s imagination. We decided to compile a list of unintended uses of our WizKid urinal mats - brought to our attention by customers or produced during an exhausting brainstorming session - because we care for all our customers (and as a simple precaution against lawsuits).

So, please DO NOT buy WizKid urinal mats:

Pet accident inside the house
  • if you have a pet that loves a particular spot in your house and apparently relishes urinating there. Don’t get us wrong, WizKid will actually do it’s job, but any vet worth his salt will tell you that is a poor approach to house training, since you will simply teach your dog to associate the urinal mat with a place to pee.
  • if you want a door mat. While it is true that some of our products look like great doormats and have the additional benefit of (really) being antimicrobial we feel you will confuse your house guests as to why you have a doormat in the restroom.
Bathroom stall sleeping
  • if you own a pub (or any public service) where you frequently discover your customers sleeping in the restroom. The Wizkid urinal mats are soft, dry and quite inviting... whereas the cold tile floors will do a much better job of waking up your customers.
Poor aim, boys in training
  • if you are actively trying to improve the aim of your recently potty trained champs. We are sorry to say that WizKid urinal mats will ruin the visual feedback for your boy(s). A good temporary solution will be to remove the Wizkid and replace it with a A3 size sheet of paper. Some customers say drawing target circles makes progress rating much more objective.
Pets on toilet mats
  • if your pet loves sleeping on it. We were unjustly targeted by hate mail from a number of customers that stepped on pets in the middle of the night. We recommend you add a pressure pad alarm system or a temperature sensor to signal clearly the urinal mat is occupied by a sleeping pet so that you should find another bathroom or else go outside.
  • if you would like to advertise on our urinal mats. While a good ad certainly attracts the attention of customers in a public restroom, we discovered customers need to pay a certain amount of attention on... aiming. The best ads tend to ruin shoes, hence we have mixed feelings about it.

Please help us make the world safer and write to us if you have discovered other unintended uses of your products or contact us on Facebook.
