Hygiene in Germany


There are many, many things to love about Germany. The two-prong binders, for one. The electrical outlets. The spatzle and spetzi and the bright red currants. And, as pictured here, the sanitary napkin disposal bags (from a museum restroom in Berlin). So adorable! So encouraging! Look at how happy the little guy in overalls is about your menstrual cycle. He has absolute faith in you--you will not throw that pad or tampon in the WC. No! You will use the Astrein (translated, via widget, as "branch clean") AS 70 Hygiene Beutel provided. To seal the deal, he's giving you a wink and TWO thumbs up. He doesn't want you to feel embarrassed either. He's just hanging out there, on his little tightrope or whatever, wearing a handyman cap. Doing his thing. Thanks, Germany. I miss you.

I have to confess--I'm obsessed with public bathroom accessories. I keep promising myself to photograph my favorites: the 'parcel shelf,' complete with directions on use for the addled female: "to use: pull down, push up before opening door, etc." and the pad dispensers from "Modess, with the whisper-soft cover." Its nice to see we're not the only delicate ones out there. :)

I've always wanted to (for many years anyway) take pictures of public bathrooms. Now, I've actually met someone who had to do a news story on it for a major newspaper. But we should do it from a whole different angle. Let's talk. In the meantime, check out: http://www.thebathroomdiaries.com/

Excellent site. One that will become a favorite haunt, I'm sure. Nice to know that all of those years playing 'bathroom hide-and-go-seek' warped us equally.
