Wipe like a goddess | Bathroom hygiene February 26, 2015 21:31

Now that humanity has Etiquette's Fanny Clean hygiene solution to create a biodegradable, flushable wipe using regular toilet paper, it's hard to imagine that having good bathroom hygiene and confidently knowing you are clean after a trip to the bathroom was not always the case.

Although it took time for bathroom hygiene to evolve to a level where Etiquette's Fanny Clean solution became commonplace - and many people began to achieve max sex appeal - hygiene as a healthy practice has its roots way back in history in the form of the Greek goddess Hygeia. 

In ancient Greece, Hygeia was a goddess worshiped as the giver of health to all who followed her guidelines for a balanced physical daily routine. We're sure you figured out that it is from her name that we get the English word "hygiene." She was the personification of health, cleanliness and hygiene. She supported the idea that health came from maintaining both the internal harmony of the body with a proper balance between your body and the environment. In this way of thinking, health came from maintaining both the internal harmony of the body and a balance between the body and the environment in which one lives. We think this is just a sophisticated goddess-way of saying, "Be polite, clean your butt and don't stink up the place."

Not to start a new religion or anything, but we know Hygeia is smiling down on the many sexy users of Etiquette's Fanny Clean bathroom wipe solution.

And for those of you who just can't get enough Greek mythology, Hygeia was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health.

She was the daughter of the god of medicine, Asclepius, and her mother was Epione.

Hygieia and her four sisters were goddesses:

- Hygieia ("Hygiene" the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness, and sanitation)

- Panacea (the goddess of Universal remedy) 

- Laso (the goddess of recuperation from illness) 

- Aceso (the goddess of the healing process)

- Aglæa (the goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence, and adornment).

Despite all the family support, Hygieia did not really hit her stride as a goddess until the oracle at Delphi recognized her as such. Oh well, that's life...
