The Humble Loo

We need them. We rely on them. Just about everyone in Australia has one. And there is nothing worse than entering into one and finding it dirty, smelly and unclean.

Yes…we are talking about the humble loo… the WC, the lav, the khazy, the good old Aussie backyard dunny.[1] And whether it is an outhouse OR an in-house, whether it is a pristine part of your home or office space or a light-weight transportable port-a-loo, the good old toilet in all its guises and designs, all its shapes and sizes…needs regular cleaning.


Toilets are a rich breeding ground for potentially harmful bacteria. One such nasty is E-coli, a fecal coliform commonly found in human and animal intestines and also in fecal waste matter. While some forms of fecal coliform and E.coli are harmless, others are known to cause severe gastric and dehydration problems which are painful, costly and debilitating. [2]

The Shiga Toxigenic E.coli infection (E.coli 0111 and E.coli 0157) are known to cause diarrheal illness, nausea and vomiting and abdominal cramps, and at worst, can lead to Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) which is characterized by kidney failure, bleeding and anemia. These strains of E.coli are easily spread – particularly when individuals come into indirect contact with the particles in contaminated water.
