A toto toilet, is a style of toilet designed by Kazuchika Okura, the founder of TOTO, a plumbing fixture company founded in 1917, 5 years after Okura returned from overseas, having seen some more advanced models of laboratories. This was before Japan had public sewage systems, and Okura felt moved create a more sanitary ceramic ware laboratory, in an attempt to develop cleaner and healthier living spaces.

toto-toiletTOTO LTD, was started in an attempt to create a comfortable living space for people, and at the same time protect the planet, and the water supply. Toto toilets come in one piece, two piece, or wall hung, with an assortment of shapes, colors, features, and styles. The toilets have a CeFiONtect ceramic glaze, that creates a very smooth, ionic barrier that help keep the toilet stay clean with each flush. Many toto toilets have washlets installed in them. A washlet is a water spray feature added to toilets for anal and genital cleansing. The term “washlet”, is actually a registered trademark of TOTO LTD. Toto went through a great deal of trial and error while adjusting the spray of the washlet on the toto toilets, by surveying 300 or more male and female employees during development.

The first toto toilet was released in June 1980, and by 2011, over 30 million toto toilets were sold. Similar manufacturers like INAX came out later, after discovering TOTO’s design, but none as worthy of praise as TOTO LTD, that in just 5 short years began a company that would change the face of what bathrooms could be, and how they could be used forever. TOTO expanded into the UK in 2010, in Farringdon, London, and after that, made another move to start a 58 million dollar factory for the US in Gajurat. TOTO currently has factories in Beijing, China, Taiwan, Siam, Thailand, USA, East China, Mexico S.A, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India. TOTO LTD’s headquarters is in Nakashima Nichome, Japan, and their products are able to be seen in malls, shopping centers, and bus stations around the globe.

The cooler temperatures bring thoughts of bundling up in your favorite sweater or coat. They also bring the comfort of drinking hot coffee, tea or cocoa. Baking or just sitting around a warm fire. But sometimes, you dread getting into that cold bed at night. Have you ever considered snuggling into bed with your favorite flannel sheets?

Insulation

Flannel sheets are always a good idea for anyone who doesn’t like to be cold, especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Flannel sheets are similar to cotton sheets, they’re just woven differently. Unlike cotton sheets, which have a smooth surface and can be cooler on your skin, flannel is brushed. This creates pockets that trap air and body heat, as well as absorbing moisture. Flannel is typically made from a wool-cotton blend, so you won’t overheat and get all sweaty in bed like you would if you use fleece or another man-made fiber.

Save Money

Flannel sheets may help lower your heating bills. Instead of cranking up the heater, and your electric bill, use flannel. Even though you have those soft, cozy sheets, don’t forget to use a comforter or blanket to help keep the warm air in and turning your heater down. This will ensure you get a better night’s sleep if you have a difficult time sleeping in the colder weather.
Flannel sheets are durable and get softer with every wash and they are just as affordable as cotton sheets. They are also available in many styles and colors. Don’t forget thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer they will be. There is a possibility of some slight shrinkage during the first wash. It is a small price to pay for the cozy feeling you’ll have climbing into bed in the cooler months. You can say goodbye to frozen feet! You can find great sheets at bed sheet advisor.

It´s always hard to know what to do in a new country and a new culture. I always recommend that you research some before you go out and travel. The trip can be so much rewarding if you know a little about the people, the country and the culture. Who knows, you might even get invited to a Morocco family. Would not that just be awesome!

If you’ve considered traveling to Morocco, you have to read blog post before you do anything else. I´ll go over the things you can do there. So here we go:

Go see the high Atlas

Atlas mountains in Morocco

While it´s not a must to have a guide when you go there, I recommend that you do. Atlas Mountains in Morocco is a very big mountain and it can be good to have someone with you that knows what to do. You can trek this mountain all year round, but the best time to do so. Is right now, in April – May. So back your bags and go there right away! It´s an amazing experience. After my first and only visit there, I promised myself to come back there. It´s was so beautiful and I´ll come back once again. Maybe you and I can go together?

Did you know that you can Ski in Morocco?

Just the idea of skiing in Africa sounds cool to me and most people. However, It´s not something that the ski enthusiast do. That is to come here specifically to ski and you should not come here either with the only specific intention to ski. It´s not that good, but It´s very fun! It can be a very fun complement to the Africa trip, to go skiing. Don’t you agree?! There are a few hotels here that you can eat and sleep at. You can also rent your skiis, but don’t expect that high quality. The stuff works, that’s about it.

Go to the Sahara Desert

Or even better, you can go to Sahara Desert in Morocco and spend a night there. How cool isn’t that?! I did it, and wooow… The experience was amazing. It’s a magical place where you can explore the breathtaking sandscapes. I can’t recommend this enough. You just have to do this!
