3 bathroom-related things to be grateful for in 2016

November is a time for reflection and gratitude. With that being said, here are three bathroom-related things to be grateful for in the year 2016:

1. Modern plumbing

Compared to what was available to theĀ Romans and the people living in the Dark Ages, modern plumbing is a great thing. Not having to walk to an outhouse or being able to take care of business at home without any negative health repercussions has not always been a reality.

2. Cool bathroom tech

Much like plumbing systems, cool bathroom tech has come a long way. Nowadays, you can light up your toilet bowl with the IllumiBowl, a motion-activated toilet night light.

3. Toilet paper

You don't have to use your hands. Enough said.

As seen on ABC's Shark Tank, the IllumiBowl is a motion-activated toilet night light designed to make late night trips to the bathroom safe and easy. The IllumiBowl is popular among potty training and senior citizens.
