History of Toilet Hire

History of Toilet Hire

Regardless of the fact that there was so much advancement in the toilet world in the Victorian age, people living in more rural areas were still using privies located at the bottom of the garden until the 1960s.

In 1857 the first toilet paper was used, it was supplied in flat packs and was called curl papers however as people were so embarrassed to see it displayed, chemists had to sell it from under the counter. It then progressed to toilet rolls in 1928, which then developed into soft paper in 1932. This was extremely unpopular at first; they obviously weren’t used to such luxury!

Modern Britain

The modern toilet has developed at such a rapid rate it’s now available in so many different styles, colours and makes. Newer technology means that toilets of today can be as extravagant or as simple as you want.

Many public toilets now have automatic flushes to increase hygiene. This is a great addition as there are usually a large number of people using them on a regular basis and is a much more efficient way of controlling bacteria.

There are so many accessories you can get for your toilet now, whether it is a smaller seat for children, toilet roll with games on them or toilet roll holders with built in air fresheners. The list is endless and is ever growing.

Toilets of the Future

There is no doubt about it, toilets will still be advancing well into the future with designs we couldn’t even imagine, like how the Romans didn’t believe we would ever have an indoor flushing toilet. Some of the most recent inventions such as heated toilet seats, water saving toilets and those that wash and dry your rear ends, are all indications that this is only the beginning.

This three part series has shown the advancement of the first toilet right through to today’s rest room habits, we can safely say that it is something that everyone needs and we can only imagine where it will go for the future.
