In 1630, a writer named Sir John Harrington invented a toilet that could flush, the first toilet to do so. The name Ajax comes from the slang word Jakes, meaning “toilets.” The invention of the first flushing toilet was a breakthrough in sanitation. The UNDP has set a goal of achieving this by the end of this century. The author of A Collection of Contemporary Bathroom Designs, R. Shaw, suggests that toilets should look more like art.

A toilet is a bathroom where humans can dispose of waste, which is usually fecal. During the Middle Ages, it was called a lavatory, which is from the Latin ‘lavare’. Later, it was changed to ‘loo’ when it was used in public places. The word toilet also refers to various personal routines. Getting ready in the morning is often called completing one’s toilet.
