Our Toilet has alot of condensation on the cistern

It keeps dripping onto the floor and I wanted to ask how can I reduce this or insulate the toilet?

We do have pipes off the toilet that need insulating too

The cistern isn't plastic

the bathroom is too damp so you are getting condensation.
It will be happening on the walls and ceiling as well, but probably not noticed and might be soaking in, and may be on the windows too. The cistern happens to be quite cold when it refills after flushing, in winter the incoming water is cold.

Have you got an extractor fan? Does it work? When do you use it?
Does the toilet cistern come straight off the mains,?

its winter time, water in the pipe underground is cold goes into a china cistern air in Bathroom which is warm and moist so inevitably you will get condensation on the cistern,

Wipe it off with a sponge.
