10 Brilliant Toilet Products That Will Improve Your Bathroom Life

Design: Victoria Houman

Humans are a funny thing. People spend half of their effort trying to reconnect with their humanity, and the other half trying to cover up the natural functions that literally everyone has. Well, I'm not afraid to talk about brilliant products and accessories for your toilet that practically make it your throne, nor the essential functions that go on in it. Just like essential bacteria and the act of sweating, going to the toilet isn't always considered 'polite' table talk. But it's a necessary part of the body, and in my opinion, it's high time people got comfortable with it.

In fact, back when I was taking nutrition classes, excrement was a topic that came up in pretty much 15-minute intervals. Anyone who's ever been a natural health practitioner knows it's the second thing you seem to disclose about yourself after your own name. It's estimated that we spend almost 92 days in the bathroom over the span of our lifetimes, and it's also been asserted that you can tell a whole lot about your health solely by looking at your poop. Consequently, it's time to get really comfortable in your bathroom, and these innovative toilet accessories can make things easier, more convenient, and significantly more enjoyable.
