A toilet seat and lid combination, of generally customary shape and dimension, self-disinfected by means of germicidal U.V. light, and its by-product Ozone, generated by a tubular lamp, housed within a module, and mounted in the rear of the toilet seat lid proximal to and parallel with the axis of rotation of the toilet seat and lid. The electrical wires for the lamp are concealed within a conduit that runs through an attachment shank. Motion of the toilet seat and lid are dampened by means of detachable flat springs and a bias force under the toilet surface that communicates through a shank used to mount the toilet seat and lid to a toilet.
