Singapore to Celebrate World Toilet Day
Fri Nov 14, 8:13 AM ET

SINGAPORE - Pop the lid on the cleanser, get out the scrub brush and be sure to leave the seat down — it's time to get ready for World Toilet Day.

The Singapore-based World Toilet Organization has begun collecting tips to improve bathroom etiquette to mark the day, held annually on Nov. 16.

The suggestions will be used to create the agenda for next year's World Toilet Summit in Beijing, the group said in a statement Friday.

"If everyone joins in, there (will be) better public toilets and happier people," said Jack Sim, a founding member of the World Toilet Organization and president of the Restroom Association of Singapore.

Suggestions already posted on the group's Web site include: teach children to aim, wipe the toilet seat after use and praise owners of well-kept toilets. Tips can be sent to info@worldtoilet.org.

The toilet group is encouraging the public to speak out about the toilets they use.

"Be it brickbats or bouquets, give feedback to the owner of the toilet," the group's statement said.

The next World Toilet Summit, which brings together academics, sanitation experts, toilet designers and environmentalists from around the world, will be held on Nov. 19, 2004 in Beijing.

Issues discussed at this year's meeting in Taipei, Taiwan last month included mountain toilets, trends in rural toilets and the impact of toilets on tourists' impressions of a country.

Once, I remember I was using a public toliet and I lost my balance and fell onto the toliet http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif
I was so upset, I immediatly went home and disinfected myself and obviously because of my profession I was up to date on my hep shots but It was like the worst feeling ever, I still get the shivers thinking about it *shudder* I have since mastered the art of using public toliets :D

It's called holding it in unless you're desperate! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif :D

How tramatizing Kasia! lol I felt the same way when I went into the Flint River for my Senior pictures. Luckily I didn't fall in, but my feet felt unclean for awhile. Even after washing them!

I am obsessed with being clean, I use a clean pillow case everynight and wash my sheets in hot water and Javex, I have to shower everyday and always carry soap, wipes with me!

You can never be too clean :D


16-11-03, 05:39
Speaking of sheets, I just realized I never put my clean sheets on after I took the other ones off... Nothing like making your bed at 1:30 am! :D ;)

16-11-03, 05:42
Yeah, that sucks, once I did that and I was so tired I slept just on the mattress :rolleyes: Just be careful of the mattress bugs :D


16-11-03, 05:55
Or grab a blanket and sleep on the couch. lol Although leather (cold too!) isn't comfortable to sleep on. Plus a warm bed is nice on a cold night like this!

I remember I used to set up a tent in my bedroom and pretend I was camping, my mom had this nature tape and she would play it, it was like I was realy camping, I was such a dork...wait I still am http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

I had too much stuff in my room to try to set up a tent. lol http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif For some reason I had two desks and two dressers plus my bed and a bookshelf.

Now I have no desks, and only one dresser (actually it's an armoire :D ) and I still manage to have no room. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

16-11-03, 06:05

Maybe I will buy a tent get a wilderness tape and invite my guy "friend" over for a little pow wow http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

16-11-03, 06:17
Once actually, and I was paralyzed with fear about bears and other wild animals, if it is not the Four Seasons I am not staying :D


16-11-03, 06:18
I've reached 3000. Time for me to go make my bed and lie in it. ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
