Bath­room and toi­let

go! Platteland - - YOUR PROPERTY -

Two-ply toi­let pa­per Yes, two-ply. No­body likes sin­gle-ply.

Tow­els Sup­ply the big­gest, most lux­u­ri­ous bath tow­els you can af­ford – prefer­ably a bath sheet and a small hand towel. They should be made of cot­ton or bam­boo (no syn­thet­ics, please).

Basin, shower and/ or bath The shower and bath should be big enough and the show­er­head placed high enough so a tall per­son won’t have to duck their head. Also en­sure that the pipe ex­tend­ing from the wall is long enough, so that the per­son doesn’t have to stand close to the back wall to be un­der the jet of wa­ter.

Toi­let Test the toi­let be­fore and after you’ve had guests. Does it flush prop­erly? Does the wa­ter level rise? Are the seat and lid se­curely fit­ted? The toi­let could cast a dark cloud over an en­tire ex­pe­ri­ence.

Geyser It should be big enough and heat the wa­ter ad­e­quately to make sure all overnight guests can bathe prop­erly. A gas geyser that heats wa­ter as needed could well be more eco­nom­i­cal.

Taps The hot- and cold­wa­ter taps at the basin, shower and bath should be clearly marked – and most cer­tainly not be re­versed. Change the tap wash­ers as soon as you no­tice drip­ping.

Mir­ror Ide­ally, pro­vide a mir­ror at the basin at a height that would suit both Casper de Vries and Vic­tor Mat­field.

Soap Pro­vide a de­cent bar of soap (or liq­uid soap) at the basin and the shower. Those silly lit­tle bars of soap that ho­tels and guest houses dis­trib­ute so ea­gerly are not very prac­ti­cal.
