Christmas Cheer in the Washrooms

Christmas Toilet

So the Bah Humbugs might wish to swap the toilet paper for Holly but here are a few simple things to help get your washrooms feeling a bit christmassy!

  1. Add a little fake snow to the mirrors – either use a template or go freehand it can have a stunning effect if used correctly.
  2. A little bit of tinsel can go a long way.  Use some double sided tape to make a little Christmas decoration around the toilet door symbols for example.
  3. Recycle old Christmas cards. Cut and paste an old Christmas card on the cubicles doors.
  4. Change the toilet door symbols to Mrs Claus and Santa Claus (a favourite of mine).
  5. Change the air freshener to a Christmas fragrance.   If you have an independent washroom company ask them to put in a Christmas smell – Our favourite is Apple and Cinnamon.
  6. Stick a sprig of mistletoe outside the toilet door – you never know who will be passing.
  7. Install a ‘potted’ Pine tree great decoration and pine fragrance.
  8. Smile. Sharing a smile is the best gift you can give and do it every day!

Happy Christmas,

The toilet Fairy

Christmas toilet ideas

So as a business instead of sending Christmas cards and dropping in a few bottles of wine why not do something a bit different this year?

There are a few charity toilet ideas (yes I know you can buy a classroom and a goat, etc. But I am a toilet expert).

Here is my favourites and recommendations

  1. Toilet Twinning.  The great thing about giving a customer a ‘toilet twin’ is that it last all year and every year.  Once a toilet is built then it is theirs as long as it still stands.  Your customer gets a lovely framed print of the actual toilet – the toilet itself gets a plaque so the users know where its come from and you even get the GPS co-ordinates so that you can look at it on google earth.  What’s not to love?  Prices start at £60 for an individual toilet up to £240 for a school toilet block.  What’s not to love? A gift that saves lives. More info here.  (Toilet Twinning)
  2. Oxfam Unwrapped.  The original Charity gift scheme and probably still the biggest. There are 3 ‘hygiene’ options that are suitable.  Again choice is yours and budgets amounts are smaller so you can share the love a bit the costs are as follows and are available online (http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/oxfam-unwrapped) here. Or pop into any Oxfam shop – here is a break down of my 3 favourites (but I also love the goat).
    1. A compost toilet costs only £20
    2. Fix a well costs £22
    3. Safe water for a village £50
