Toilet cleanliness is one indicator of a person or a family. If you want to know a particular person is clean or dirty, just look at how the toilet in his home. Well, how the toilet in your home?
According to the Chairman of the Indonesian Toilet Association, Naning Adiwoso, there are three things to note from a toilet.
It all started with the design. There are several things to consider when designing a toilet at home. The minimum size toilet is 1.2 meters x 2 meters. ”This measure makes people move freely therein. Nudge banged his hands does not go anywhere,” said Interior Architecture graduate studies at the Pratt Institute of New York.
The bathroom door should be opened fully. Avoid opening the door banged tub or bucket so it does not move freely. To avoid something happens in the toilet, people who go unconscious or ill-doors should open outward.
The distance between the toilet and sink should not be too close, about one meter. Toilets must have ventilation so that air was trapped in the toilet. Ventilation should be directed from the outside to the toilet into the room, not into another room. When the toilet is in the middle of the house, many people install exhaust fan to remove the air in the toilet.
Toilets need good lighting. It’s very important to be enough clean water. Water is good for flushing waste and washes hands.
In the market there is a toilet seat and squat. This option is tailored to the habits of the wearer. Squat toilet is better because more freely. However, for those who are elderly hard times getting up. Thus, the wall needs to be installed stainless steel handles. However, there is also a more comfortable using a toilet seat.
For doors and glass, choose quality. Quality will give satisfaction. For example, the door cannot easily broken or eaten by termites and glass not easily broken.
Ceramic wall, choose a smooth pan. That way, the wall will be easy to clean. As for the floor, choose one that has a rough surface so it does not easily slip. Avoid murky color selection to avoid the impression of a dirty and dark.
Do not ignore the slope of the floor, a minimum of two percent. The goal is that water easily flows into the exhaust so it does not make a puddle.
“A clean toilet is a dry and healthy,” said Naning. Moreover, Indonesia as a tropical country conditions toilet should be completely dry. Just make a little puddle toilets become damp, inviting and spreading germs.
Naning added, error cleaning toilets by pouring carbolic acid. This material is not only a stinging smell, but causing bacteria in the septic tank to die. It can also damage the ground water.
Place perfume or plant room in the corner. Toilets will give a fresh atmosphere.
It should be noted that the toilets are not necessarily hygienically clean. When soaked in water, cleaned with soap, or regular cleaning, feces were missing toilets to be clean. However, continued Nana, not necessarily all the germs, bacteria die. Therefore, many germs are sourced from the bathroom did not die just drenched with water or soap.
Ideally, clean the toilets at least once a day, but it could be three to four times so that germs do not multiply. For cleaning, said Nana, choose which contains sodium hypochlorite, which effectively kills bacteria and germs. This material is also safe in the hands and does not damage the surface of the toilet-porcelain floor tiles. Choose a cleanser that also contains a natural deodorizer. This atmosphere makes it convenient for conducting activities in the toilet.
In addition to consider the cleanliness of the toilet water faucet, sink, the doors handle, until the hidden corners. You can also use air freshener to get rid of unpleasant smells in the bathroom.
Here are the steps to properly clean the toilets, which are:
- Use gloves and pour the cleaning fluid around the toilet.
- Wait a few ingredients to work effectively.
- Brush the closets until evenly distributed.
- Flush with water.
- Close the toilet so as not to spread germs.
