Tushon - An Australian brand providing premium hygiene products

May 21, 2020

My name is Caroline Mortlock and I am the creator and owner of TUSHON Premium Toilet Seat Covers.

I live in the beautiful Southern Highlands NSW and I am a mum to three energetic kids, four crazy fur babies, and the wife of former Australian Rugby Captain - Stirling Mortlock (who may be the biggest kid of them all).

I created TUSHON because I really dislike public toilets and I wanted to provide the best protection for my family and for people who share the same concerns about germs. Whether you’re a mum who wants to completely cover the seat to protect your toddler, or you have a medical condition that makes using public toilets difficult, TUSHON was created to help you feel prepared, comfortable and protected when you put your “tush on” ANY public toilet seat.

It's easy to make your safety a priority when using public toilets and protect yourself against getting sick.

Since then we have learnt many worrying facts about transmission from those that are studying it internationally, but this information is important in helping us understand how we can protect ourselves and reduce our chances of being infected with SARS-CoV-2 which leads to the clinical disease state known as COVID-19.

So your child has no problem using the toilet at home, but take them to a public toilet and that’s a completely different story.

Sit on a public toilet they said……..yeah, nah!!

Sit on a public toilet they said……..yeah, nah!!

July 30, 2019

Most would agree that having to use a public toilet is something we have to do quite often, if not daily. Would we rather just go at home? Well obviously, but that’s not always possible.

When you do have to use one, you usually enter without thinking about how much you really hate to use them. Until of course you get a peek at the state of the toilets and all those bits of toilet paper lying on the floor, wet spots and dirty marks on the toilet seat.

The Essential Travel Checklist For Staying Healthy When Travelling

December 14, 2018

Do you have travel plans these holidays? Plan ahead and be prepared so that your holiday is stress free, healthy and super organised so you can enjoy your long anticipated trip.

We all know how easy it is to get sick when travelling. Public transport is riddled with lots of germs and viruses due to the high use of surfaces and limited hygiene opportunities for travellers. Surfaces used frequently by the public like seat belts, toilets, buttons and touch screens provide an easy opportunity for germs to be transferred. The last thing you want when trying to enjoy your trip is a family gastro outbreak or the flu.

TUSHON - MAKING MUM LIFE EASIER by @decorme_au

March 05, 2018

When the opportunity came up to review the TUSHON product, I was intrigued with the whole concept and I was open to try anything to help me when heading out of the house. It put me in panic mode even thinking that I needed to leave the house with 3 year old twins and a bub, let alone the copious amounts of toilet trips that would come up. Anxiety levels at an all time high! Let's not talk about the amount of germs that would be on a public toilet. I would rather not think about it...

Hosting Mothers Group - It's a battlefield

October 20, 2017

There comes a time in every new mums life when you finally join a mothers group. If you are lucky you all start at the same time, allowing new bonds to form naturally with an equal amount of anxiety shared amongst the group.

Now, some mums stress about how beautiful every other mums house is, how tidy it was, and what fantastic toys every other child seems to have. But no, these were not the things that filled my mind with dread.

A TUSHON Tale - The idea for a premium disposable toilet seat cover

A TUSHON Tale - The idea for a premium disposable toilet seat cover

July 27, 2016

Caroline first came up with the idea for a premium disposable toilet seat
cover prior to 2010, as she had three young preschool and primary school
aged children and like many other females, was worried about the germs she
and her family could catch while using public toilets. Caroline was frustrated
that the daily use of public toilet facilities with her children caused her stress
and affected the time she spent with her children.
