Many people use nightlights to avoid having to stumble around in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. However, nightlights remain on throughout the night using up unnecessary electricity and some are a little too bright and may disturb your sleep. And no one enjoys turning on the bathroom light in the middle of the night either. The IllumiBowl Motion Activated Toilet Night Light is a different type of bathroom nightlight that may solve all these problems. Using three AAA batteries, it has a light sensor and will only activate in a dark room, and a motion detector which automatically turns it on when you walk into the bathroom and when you leave.  It will automatically shut off after two minutes when no motion is detected.

You install IllumiBowl using a suction cup applied to the side of your toilet that faces your bathroom door. The base unit has a thin adjustable arm that contains the light which folds over the lip of your toilet bowl so that the light shines down into the bowl. It is splash proof and easy to clean using cleaners you already have. You can set the light to turn on using one color or rotate through multiple colors (red, orange, teal, green, blue, purple, pink, and white) when it is activated. The IllumiBowl Toilet Night Light (Motion Activated) sells for $19.99, but is currently on back order according to the website and will start shipping again in 3-4 weeks.

  2. Is this one of those things that men REALLY want so they don’t have to put on the bathroom light but can still hit the right target?

    1. My spouse has been saying how she wants one of these things. As I’m the one who cleans the toilets, heck no – especially not for the price. I got a little plugin LED night light from the dollar store that is plenty bright and has a light sensor on it. When the light in the bathroom goes off it goes on, light on in the bathroom it turns off. And it uses such a small amount of power it costs almost nothing to keep it plugged in.

      If your guy has trouble aiming in the dark get a cheap nite light like I mentioned or tell him to just sit down and pee if he doesn’t want to turn on that light. It’s what I did until I found the cheap dollar store nite light. AND you don’t have to worry about urine or feces splash back onto the light itself, which trust me will happen when sick and you randomly get diarrhea. I’m on antibiotics at the moment and I can make a mess and not amount of probiotics is going to fix it while still on meds. (Nice picture I know)
