National Bathtub Day is more than a holiday. In the bath we take water treatments, relax after a hard day’s work, come up with new ideas, listen to music… All people have different habits. On this date, people unite to honor the creators of such a familiar but unique attribute!
People did not agree on a common opinion about the founder of the holiday. Maybe Wellcat Holidays is involved. It is also not known when the National Day was first celebrated – but does it matter? The main thing is that we continue to celebrate it, and are not going to forget.
The very first mention of the product dates back to 1700. However, official data says that the bathtub was invented in 1883. This has been a real breakthrough! It was created from cast iron, framed with decorative legs, complemented with enamel trim – such an item was desired in every home.
Now there are a huge number of varieties of bathtubs: acrylic, steel, with a reinforced bottom, colored, classic white color, with seats, handles, original or standard shapes … This is not only a bathing area, but also a design element. Manufacturers compete and create new solutions to attract the buyer.
It is curious that:
- the Greeks considered it their duty to invite the traveler to take a bath – this was considered good form;
- the hot tub appeared quite by accident immediately after the invention of the pump;
- the ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes discovered the law that glorified him to the whole world, basking in the bath;
- the Egyptians had a kind of analogue of plumbing – a small room with a square stove. Here the slaves washed their master;
- in the Middle Ages, bathing was considered a sin, so people practically did not wash.
How to celebrate
Watch a movie in the bath – combine business with pleasure! Buy a fizzy bomb – such gizmos are now at the height of fashion. Buy special cleaning products and transform your plumbing device beyond recognition!
