It’s been a while since I last offered an example of a modern, every day product that makes our lives cleaner and more sanitary.
I refer here not to the quotidian marvel that is an indoor flush urinal – with an automatic flush! (This one is in the Burlington, Vermont, airport.) Rather, I refer to the plastic liner with the brand name “Splash Hog.” This device reduces the splash – keeping men cleaner.
This addition to our capitalist cleanliness is small. But the many such small additions to our capitalist cleanliness add up to make our lives cleaner, more pleasant, and safer than at any time in history.
