How to Care for your Compost Toilet Hinges


Properly caring for the hinges of your composting toilet is essential for ensuring that the toilet functions properly and lasts as long as possible. Moisture buildup can cause the hinges to rust or become stuck, making it difficult to open and close the toilet. Regular maintenance of Cuddy’s hinges can help prevent this from happening!

One of the most effective ways to care for the hinges of your Cuddy composting toilet is to use a lubricant like WD-40. This type of lubricant is specifically designed to protect metal surfaces from rust and corrosion. To properly lubricate the hinges, all you need is a can of WD-40 and a paper towel. First, spray a fine mist of the lubricant on the front face, then back face, and finally the top face of the hinge. Then, use the paper towel to wipe away any excess lubricant and ensure that the hinge is evenly coated. Repeat this process on the other side, and you’re done!

We recommend doing this routine maintenance on a regular basis, like every three months or as needed. This helps ensure that Cuddy’s hinges remain in good working condition and that moisture buildup is kept to a minimum.

TL;DR: proper care for the hinges of your Cuddy composting toilet includes using a lubricant such as WD-40 and regularly lubing up the hinges. This simple maintenance routine will help ensure that your Cuddy functions properly and lasts as long as possible!
