The porcelain throne, the loo, the crapper, the dunny, the thunderbox, the latrine, the lavatory, the head, or the toilet… whatever you call it, we all use it. Luckily, these days it is far easier to achieve a level of cleanliness that prior generations weren’t privy to. We should all be grateful!
A Brief History of the Head
Did you know that the Romans had an underground sewer system? Unfortunately, these sewer systems didn’t just carry waste, but drinking water as well! Gross! Often their public restrooms had undivided “stalls” for over 30 people.
Oddly, towards the middle ages, human hygiene seemingly regressed. In London, the lower class used chamber pots or buckets to do their business. Families with larger homes (or those who could afford it) had bathrooms that emptied into a “septic pit” of sorts that was later emptied by men called Gongfermours who would deposit it into a stream or river. For royalty and nobles, a room with a special seat that emptied directly into the moat was the modus operandi for their high class derrières. People often hung their clothes in the bathroom because the smell kept away flees and moths! The king and queen even had an honorary position for someone to wipe for them. Yep, they left the dirty work to others like a pair of toddlers.
Thanks to advances in the late 1700’s through the 1900’s, you and I can enjoy a more sanitary and clean bathroom experience. I wouldn’t trade our modern convenience for anything prior, that’s for sure! Yes, my butt is so coddled, I could never adapt to the rigors of bowel relief methods of my ancestors. In fact, you could say that we now treat our rumps like royalty…
A Royal Flush
Yes, with flushable wipes you can be sure that you have a clean caboose after you download a brown-load. Personally, I think it should be legally required to use these. The level of “fresh & clean” is too important to be skipped. If a presidential candidate would adopt this as their campaign soapbox, they’d win for sure.
We are lucky to live in our modern age of equality when it comes to access to basic hygienic needs. No longer is a set of clean cheeks reserved for the royalty and nobility! We can all treat our rear ends to a fantastic royal flush!

Not much to say here, really. Simply insert the ends of the canister arms over the toilet paper tube holder and reinstall. Simple as that!
I’ve never seen a child who is quite as particular as Jacob when it comes to personal cleanliness. He will absolutely destroy any room he is in but heaven forbid he get anything on his hands. He borderline panics when he gets marker on his hands. We are talking complete emotional breakdown! Poor boy…
We’ve recently been trying to break him of the habit of using 100 yards of toilet paper for a single wipe. It hasn’t been going so well, so we’ve had to institute a t.p. restriction plan so Jacob doesn’t break the bank or clog the plumbing. He was eager to get his hands on these new adventure wipes, but we have limited him to one per bathroom trip. It remains to be seen if he is abiding by the rule!
Maggie is completely self-sufficient and needs no supervision. She’s 5 going on 30 after all.
Fresh & Clean
It is nice to have a fresh wipe within reach at all times to make sure you are truly clean. Even though we might not get as messy as the children, there are times when Janessa and I both appreciate having flushable wipes in the bathroom. We both love how they attach to the toilet paper roll, putting them in easy range when needed. They are convenient, practical, and easy to refill. Nothing beats that nice clean feeling!
