4. There are more toilets flushed in the U.S. during the Super Bowl halftime show than any other half hour of the year.
5. Pomegranates studded with cloves were used as the first toilet air-fresheners.
“No one pays much attention to the toilet until there is something wrong with it,” said David Collette, Director of Foodservice, Cintas. “Yet the issue of inadequate access to sanitation is a very real problem.”
