World Toilet Day

We have Independence Day, Labour Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Public Holiday, Saturday, Sunday, etc...How about World Toilet Day? What and when is World Toilet Day? Check it out!

19 November was declared 'World Toilet Day' in 2001 by 17 toilet associations around the world. Since then there has been established an annual World Toilet Summit and many other regional conferences. Each toilet association has also engaged in many activities promoting clean toilets in their own respective country.

Since 2001, World Toilet Day has become a global platform for academics, sanitation experts, toilet designers, environmentalists etc. to share the latest on rural and urban toilets.

The World Toilet Organisation asks each individual, in their respective country, to request better equality (more facilities for women); more accessibility & special provisions (for the disabled & mothers with babies); clean toilets (for everyone); and more toilets (for the less fortunate).

Sit or squat toilet?

Which one is better? sit or..

squat toilet?

Here's the fact. Continue your reading..

Oncologists have observed that 80% of colon cancers occur in the caecum and the sigmoid colon, the two areas that are not fully evacuated in the sitting posture. This causes fecal stagnation and probably explains why colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. In traditional Asian and African cultures where squatting is the norm, colon cancer is virtually unknown!

After knowing about these, i prefer squat toilet. how about you? :)

Toilet bowl cleaner

What is your toilet bowl cleaner? Is it Lysol?

2000 flushes or..


Those three are the famous toilet bowl cleaner's product. When I do some research. The cheapest way is to use the pumice stone. It does sound terrible while you are using it, but it works and gets all the stains off.

Toilet 'simple' history

Do you heard stories about the toilet being invented by man named Crapper. Yeah, me too. Had we been manipulated in by a school's history education?Do you think Thomas Crapper is the toilet inventor? Read my blog now...I search both at yahoo and google and I learned that since 2500 B.C, seated toilets have been used with drainage systems.

Eighteenth century was a century of toilets.However, it seems the idea of toilets went down the drain until the mid-1700s. Of course, the water closet had been invented in 1596 by John Harrington. The first valve-type flush toilet was introduced in 1738 by a man named J.F. Brondel. Thankfully, most of my facts info are fully credited in Sulabh's toilet history.
