Now We Know Why Those Asses Are Smiling


In one of our many roles here at UnBeige, we strive to provide you with the highest-level public service announcements which will ultimately improve your overall well-being. While we were busy making jokes about the grinning butts of the Toto Washlet ads, reader John Philips reminds us that it’s really no laughing matter:

Not sure about the ads, but what IS scary is that most Americans continue to use dry paper after toilet activity. It is impossible to clean with just paper. Paper leaves a residue that allows bacteria or fungus to flourish. This can result in undesired itching, odor and the possibility of inflammation or infection. Bottom line (pun intended) – water cleans – paper doesn’t.

And there you have it, friends. Design news at its best.
