Hand dryers or Paper Towels; Which is the Best? - The Boundary Bathrooms Blog

Hand dryers or Paper Towels; Which is the Best? - The Boundary Bathrooms Blog | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

Here’s the situation; you’re in a public bathroom and you’ve just finished washing your hands, you’re also in a rush and you don’t want to spend even more time drying your hands, so what do you do? Do you go for the hand dryer on the wall? Do you grab a paper towel from the dispenser instead? Or do you ignore both and leave the bathroom waving your hands in the air like you’re imitating a hummingbird? That’s if there’s even the option for both, many times there’s either one or the other and you don’t get a choice of preference, but if you did then what would you prefer?

Thomas Paul Mulrooney's insight:

Paper towels for me, ain't nobody got time to wait for a dryer to do the job!

The Inexpensive (and Better) Way to Clean Your Bathroom - Plumbworld News

The Inexpensive (and Better) Way to Clean Your Bathroom - Plumbworld News | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

There are so many bathroom cleaning products that cover different aspects of the cleaning process that it can be quite bewildering to know where to start. The fact is you don’t need all these things, there are solutions that will tackle the dirt and grime without you ever having to lift that expensive – and not exactly environmentally friendly – cleaning product off the shelf. The best part of it is that you probably already have these inexpensive – and often better – solutions already sitting in a cupboard.

The BathroomWorld Blog: Spiders in the Bathroom! | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

I'm not afraid to admit that I'm not exactly a massive fan of spiders, but who is? Small spiders I'm fine with, although when we're talking small I'm talking about no bigger than the tip of my little finger. It’s the bigger spiders, with the long legs and an inhuman ability to move at blazing fast speeds that can send a shudder of revulsion through my body.

This hub takes you through the positives and negatives of replacing your bath with a shower.
Thomas Paul Mulrooney's insight:

Is it worth completely replacing your bath with a shower enclosure? Or would you miss your bath too much? My last house only had a shower enclosure, but now I've moved house and I have a bath with a shower over it I think I'd miss my bath far too much - even though I do use the shower a lot more.

Bathroom Cakes That Look Too Good To Eat - The Boundary Bathrooms Blog

Bathroom Cakes That Look Too Good To Eat - The Boundary Bathrooms Blog | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

Back when we had our 65th Birthday party Heritage Bathrooms created the lovely bathroom cake above to help celebrate with us. I love the immense amount of detail that has been put into the bubbles bursting out of what looks like an extremely relaxing bath. It was almost a shame to demolish this cake and scoff it down, but thankfully it tasted just as good as it looked so it was an opportunity that was too good to pass up!

The BathroomWorld Blog: 5 Dream Bathrooms

The BathroomWorld Blog: 5 Dream Bathrooms | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

It would be good to be rich, to not have to constantly worry about money in an era where we all seem to be tightening our belts and pinching the pennies. Unfortunately an overflow of cash isn’t going to come to us all, but let’s keep working hard and playing the lottery anyway! A lack of cash doesn't stop you dreaming though, and one can certainly look at extravagant dream bathrooms that you may wish you were whiling away your days in rather than your own bathroom.

Oh, how we do love to dream about owning bathrooms that we will probably never have!

The BathroomWorld Blog: The World's Most Expensive Toilet Paper

The BathroomWorld Blog: The World's Most Expensive Toilet Paper | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

We’re all well aware that rich people love to spend their money on extravagant purchases, but you’d think that the toilet paper they bought probably wasn't all that different from the amount we’re willing to spend. Proving there’s a market for overpriced products in any area though is the Hanebisho toilet paper; a luxury that could be equal to pretty much just flushing your money down the toilet. At ¥5,000 per pack it works out at around $17 per roll, which I'm sure you’ll agree is a high price to pay for simply wiping your bum. 

Thomas Paul Mulrooney's insight:

I'm not sure I'd ever pay $17 for one roll of toilet paper - no matter how good it may feel!

What Qualifications Should My Plumber Have? - Plumbworld News

What Qualifications Should My Plumber Have? - Plumbworld News | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

Choosing a tradesman to come into your home and do some work is often a tricky business, and one of the factors we consider when choosing a plumber is how well qualified they are. Qualifications seem to the homeowner to be important when trusting someone to work with water and plumbing where they could potentially cause a lot of damage should something go wrong, but is a poorly qualified plumber necessarily a poor plumber?

The BathroomWorld Blog: The World's Most Expensive Toilet Paper

The BathroomWorld Blog: The World's Most Expensive Toilet Paper | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

How much do you pay for your toilet paper? Personally I avoid the really cheap stuff as it can feel like what I imagine is something pretty close to sandpaper! So I’ll spend a couple of pounds at the most on buying a pack of toilet paper – usually containing 4 rolls – and that will last us about 2 weeks. Others may prefer toilet paper sprinkled with aloe vera, fancy branded toilet paper such as having Mickey Mouse stare at you while you do your business or toilet paper so soft that it feels like you’re using a feather. What you probably don’t get is the world’s most expensive toilet paper. 

Thomas Paul Mulrooney's insight:

That's a lot of money to pay just to wipe your bum!

The BathroomWorld Blog: Good Eats? This Blog Also Reviews Restaurant Bathrooms

The BathroomWorld Blog: Good Eats? This Blog Also Reviews Restaurant Bathrooms | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

The new guy on the block is Table and Throne, a blog that tells us the only thing we’d ever want to know when planning a trip to a restaurant in San Francisco; are the bathrooms any good? Ok, before the detailed bathroom review you do get to find out if the food is any good. There’s little point in going to a restaurant if the food and drink that’s going to make you go to the bathroom is a bit rubbish to begin with. Nobody ever said; “Hey, the food sucks in this restaurant but I'm going to keep coming here just because I absolutely love the bathrooms!” and if they did then you probably want to reconsider being their friend.

Thomas Paul Mulrooney's insight:

I'm seeing a trend popping up that has blogs reviewing public bathrooms. It sounds odd but a bathroom is something we all inevitably need to use when we're out and about, so why not go out armed with the information about the best place to take a leak?

This new blog, Table and Throne, takes on the task of reviewing restaurants around San Francisco with a bit of a twist; it also reviews their bathrooms. It shows that a restaurant can be and look absolutely brilliant, until you enter their dreaded excuse for a bathroom. Maybe something to work on!

Product Pick: Kohler Panache Back to Wall Toilet - The Boundary Bathrooms Blog | Bathrooms | Scoop.it

“Hey there toilet, whatcha got cookin’?”

“Erm, hey… I'm not cooking anything, I'm a toilet. In fact it wouldn’t make much sense if I was equipped with some form of cooking apparatus as I'm the place where people come to do their business and not to cook a full English breakfast. I can imagine a few scars caused by my cooking ability malfunctioning, plus I'm guessing that most people wouldn’t want to eat food that had literally come from a toilet. I'm pretty hygienic, but not THAT hygienic”

“Um, toilet?”

“Yes? Weird disembodied voice?”

“To be fair I could probably say this is weird too, given that toilets don’t generally speak…”

“ I'm a special toilet, even if I'm not equipped with all those fancy features that the Kohler Numi has. That guy thinks he’s top dog because he can play music, but I can hum the national anthem if anybody would care to ask me!”

“Yeah… anyway, it was simply an expression. I didn't literally mean you were cooking something, have you never heard the Johnny Cash song?”

Toilets that talk?!? We really are living in the future ;-)
