Relieving oneself is natural and normal. We all do it. We have to. But have you ever stopped to think about the benefits? We are always told, “It’s bad to hold it in”, but why exactly? Can bladders really explode? Will we die? What’s the deal with having a healthy bladder and how do we get one? Let’s find out:
While many traditional camping grounds are equipped with standard ablution blocks, the growing trend of multi-day summer events and tented camps in far-flung locations poses a different kind of challenge for campers. While everyone loves a little down time to ‘unplug’ from everything, no one wants to be without access to basic ablutions.
There’s no such thing as a weird phobia. Many people have them, it’s part of life. Some people have developed phobias from bad past experiences, others can’t quite pinpoint why they’re scared but that doesn’t make it any less real.
The toilet is actually a common trigger for a number of phobias. So next time you’re banging on the door of an unsuspecting, poor soul as you impatiently wait for them to avail the porta-loo, consider this:
We all spend a fair share of time visiting bathroom stalls in our lifetimes. And while the goal is generally to get in and out without much fuss, if there ever was the right context for a little toilet humour, this is it.
When it comes to hygiene matters and the spread of germs of bacteria, hands are the number one culprits. Which makes it all the more alarming that an estimated 60% of South Africans don’t wash their hands properly after using the toilet (germophobes, continue reading with caution). It’s further estimated that 66% of South Africans don’t wash their hands with soap at all.
We all use toilets every day, and yet they don’t exactly form part of everyday conversation. As often as we frequent them, there are some surprising and startling facts that most people simply don’t know. Here are just five that might make you say: ‘What the flush?!’
Let’s be honest. When you think of portable toilets in the heat of summer, you’re probably not being reminded of the sweet scent of blooming flowers and freshly cut grass.
Porta loos aren’t only for music festivals and concerts. With a wide range of options available that can cover any need, porta loos and trailers are often the most cost-effective and convenient way to offer additional facilities in many different circumstances.
If you have a septic tank, you probably know hundreds of ways to say ‘DO NOT FLUSH FOREIGN OBJECTS’ and have plastered these reminders all over your home or workplace. But no matter how many signs there are and how many funny puns you can use to get the message across, there’s always more than just toilet paper and water that ends up going down the drain.
Your home can be the perfect venue for special events like milestone birthdays, graduations, reunions or even an intimate wedding. It’s great to have everyone in a relaxed environment, and you can avoid the cost of venue hire.
