From ancient India to self-cleaning "comfort stations," MODERN MARVELS reveals the secrets of the room no home can do without.
- Visit the Kohler factory to see how a sink gets its start.
- The inside stories of everything from toothbrushes to toilets.
- Everything you ever wanted to know about the most-used room in the house.
From tub to toilet to toothpaste, here's everything you ever wanted to know about the most used and least discussed room in the house. From the first home bathrooms in ancient India, Roman latrines, and bizarre Victorian-era bath contraptions, to modern luxurious master bathroom suites, we trace the history of bathing, showering, and oral hygiene. And we reveal the messy truth about what was used before toilet paper--brainchild of the Scott Brothers of Philadelphia--and why astronauts wear diapers.
