Celebrate 'World Toilet Day' with Domex (year 3)

In celebration of World Toilet Day, Domex led the cause for clean toilets in the country through a discussion on toilet sanitation.


Do you know that in the developing world, 443 million days of school are missed because of diseases caused by germs found in unsanitary toilets? That is equivalent to 1 month of school missed by every child in the Philippines. According to Maria Luisa Orezca, President of the Philippine Public Health Association, "The issue of toilet sanitation in our country is important. There are several germs found in toilets that cause sicknesses."

The PPHA president cites that examples of such germs are fungi, which causes skin diseases, gram negative bacteria, which causes diarrhea, and mycro bacteria, which is the cause of tuberculosis.

With the commitment to raised hygiene standards, in the last three years Domex has participated in the One Million Clean Toilets project where they pledge to educate 1 million people on proper toilet sanitation every year. This year. Arks their three million milestone.

This time, Domex looks at an area literally closer to home. Domex wants to emphasize that we can lead the change for clean toilets, because after l proper sanitation practices starts at home.

It is a common misconception that a toilet that smells nice and looks sparkling-clean enough. However, a spotless toilet does not guarantee that it is germ-free.

Domex's Research and Development Manager, Am or Montefalcon-Prieto says " In order to stay 99.9% germ free it is essential to use a specialized toilet cleaner that not only cleanses but kills germs. "Consumers might be content with using thin bleach and laundry detergent. While they may clean the toilet, they do not kill germs thoroughly."


Domex works in a way that has triple action because it thoroughly cleanses, has effective contact time and has far reach. Domex kills a wide range of germs such as vatious fungi, bacteria and viruses. Because it is 5 times thicker than thin laundry bleach, it also lasts up to seven flushes, while thin bleach lasts only for two. In addition, Domex is also able to access hard-to-reach areas inside your toilet.


It is the firm advocacy of Domex that everything, including proper sanitation, starts at home. By working actively with households PPHA, Maxicare, and UNICEF, Domex helps spread awareness on the sanitation issue in our country.

Let's begin proper cleanliness in our home by joining the #1millionToilets movement. You may visit Domex Philippines facebook page for more information and updates.
