We’re back for this week’s line up on what’s going down in the world of toilets and poop. Today’s articles and insights yet again uncover the best of what’s out there – but we don’t just stay on top of what’s at the bottom, we also research and educate on all you need to know, before you go! So, let’s look at what’s going on in the john, in this weeks edition of, ‘The Daily Poo!’ We’ll start with the nice stuff, then it may get a bit shittier…

  1. Nice Butt… Women’s Health Magazine looks at the Bathroom Box, which is also available on Amazon, the perfect place for your Poo-Pourri, Who Gives a Crap Loo Rolls and an attractive Pot Plant!?… A whole lot more classy than the traditional toilet roll holder! Other possibilities include a toilet roll holder… ‘That Looks Like A Dinosaur‘ and Talking Toilet Roll Spindle
  2. On the topic of ideas for a ‘Beautiful Bathroom‘ did you know that wicker baskets are another aesthetically pleasing alternative to the trad loo roll holders… look at Wayfair for inspiration! Oh, and by the way – if our patents pending get adopted, then forget ‘stand alone’ colon straighteners, these will be built in to your toilets – as a standard chrome/colour coordinated fitting to blend in to your chosen designs.
  3. Farm-to-Tush Toilet Paper Is Here. Glamour looks at artisanal butt care, by Caroline Moss.
  4. On a more charitable note, Andrex has teamed up with WaterAid on an increasingly popular cause, ‘Toilets Change Lives.’ These positive links between manufacturers and the likes of UNICEF, the UN, WaterAid and The World Toilet Organisation are beginning to help with sanitation in poorer areas of the world, where 2 billion people have little of no access to basic sanitation!
  5. Turning swiftly to a new trend… check out the new fad for doing Selfie Moon Pics using the cardboard centres of toilet rolls… article by Zaini Majeed for Republic tv.
  6. The next article has a great interview from down under, no… not the nether regions – the other down unders, but NZ not Australia… Weight Loss and other benefits of popping poop pills. Then, shower habits that get increasingly more gross as you read on… We’d suggest you don’t read this ’til after midday!
  7. Are you still here… ? Well, this is, ‘The Daily Poo!’ so it’s gonna be shitty sometimes! Okay next article…
  8. The Poop Project takes their one-man show back on the road, ‘How the Potty Trained Us‘ stimulating conversation about sustainability and stools. It’s not just the big guys that are making a difference, Mr. Toilet andThe Poop Project are two great examples of the current disrupters!

That’s a wrap, except for the Poop Map… strange though it may seem, or not, there’s an app for crap – which has been gaining popularity. For those people who love to know where, when and under what circumstances their friends poop, this app is for you. Let’s hope it has a greater purpose for the future, I can think of one if they’d like to get in touch! Delaney Halloran explains in The Spectrum. Have a great week and we’ll be back next Monday with the latest edition of, ‘The Daily Poo!

Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘The Daily Poo!‘ where we look at what’s going on in the world of loos & no. 2s, health issues, Valentine Gifts, challenges around the world, inventions, fascinating facts and quite a lot of silliness too. Let’s start with the perfect Valentine gift, as Feb 14th is fast approaching. There’s a company called ‘TUSHY‘ who have managed, amongst other things, to make a posh version of the ‘squattypottyTM’ and, although we have patents pending out there for an alternative – the TUSHY Ottoman may just be the most beautiful option for straightening your colons, or that of the one(s) you love… Added to which, their core product is, as their name suggests, an attachable bidet to wash your tush. Plus they have more eco-friendly and beautifully designed products in their range too, take a look at the website and discover them all! Another great gift idea is that amazing Poo-Pourri tried and tested by us here at ‘The Daily Poo!‘ for the home, small enough to carry around and it really works. Another of our favourites is the ‘Who Gives a Crap‘ toilet paper range, and ‘Aesop Post-Poo Drops.’ If you love someone then surely you must give a crap and all of the above could just show your true affections.

Meanwhile back to the news and views:

  1. Whilst we’re on the subject of ablutions – which we are every week 🙂 Men’sHealth explain why taking a poo is good for your mental health!

A few other fascinating articles, stay on track with our guide to the history of the toilet, how they work and more abstract news such as why talking about cow poop has become an art form… here they are:

  1. A great article on, ‘What the Earliest Toilets Say About How Human Civilisation Has Evolved.’ Latrines have been around for thousands of years. Though they haven’t exactly always been sanitary. Discover by Bridget Alex.
  2. At a certain time in the not too distant past, in Australia they had ‘dunnycarts‘ to take away poop, and in places like Norfolk in the UK, it was ‘honeycarts‘ as Keith Skipper explains for the Eastern Daily Press, ‘It was like the Deliveroo of its day, only in reverse. The takeway convenience of the honeycart.’
  3. From 2019 Chris Woodford runs through a few toilets on ExplainThatStuff, and illustrates how they work. Flush, Macerating, Vacuum & Composting.
  4. As the Science Museum continues its successful ‘It takes Guts‘ a gross, squirm-inducing show about the workings of the human digestive system, Farmers Weekly points out the effect that talking about cow poo has on unruly children. Teachers, catch the full YouTube of ‘It Takes Guts’ here.

That’s it for now. We’ll be back with more of ‘The Daily Poo!‘ next week…
