A Darla Discovery – Brands with Braille

Today I finally got around to cleaning the toilet and dropping in one of those tablets designed to keep the porcelain cleaner. A look at the packaging revealed something unusual. Check this out…

See the Print at Bottom Right?
Sorry about the tear. I failed to think of blogging on this before finishing the deed. After that I saw there was indeed Braille at the top, which sort of blends in with the decorative bubbles at first glance. Anyway, I read further to learn IMS Trading donates some of the proceeds to a foundation for the blind in honor of the founder and CEO Isaac Shapiro’s mother.

I Wonder How Useful This Is
Do you use cleansing toilet inserts?

  1. I wouldn't have noticed that if you hadn't mentioned it. What a lovely thing to do.

    I don't use these. I probably should though.

    Have a fabulous day, Darla. Big hug. ♥

    1. I thought it was pretty cool. We forget to add them when we should. The toilet was nasty before I cleaned it! Oops. Hope you're well. ~hugs back~

  2. Well that's cool, but if you were blind how would you know if it cleaned the toilet or not?

    1. I didn't even think of that! You're funny. I imagine this would only help those legally blind with some degree of sight. Otherwise, how would you know where to find the Braille? Be well!

    2. Maybe packages with Braille have it in standard places? I don't "get" Brian's humor. I assume that when you buy them because the work, or why would you buy them? In fact, if you use them regularly I'd say you don't need to "see" if they work!

  3. Braille is interesting. From what I've seen, each letter is made up of six raised dots. Whether they're raised or not determines which letter. The teacher who has the visually impaired classes can read Braille visually.

    1. Wow! That's quite a skill. And thank you for the information. I hope you're having a great day.

  4. No, I don't use them. I scrub with Comet and a good ol' fashioned toilet brush!
    Braille shows up more lately, which is a great thing. I run my fingers over the dots and honestly, can't imagine having to distinguish the patterns.

    1. Good on you. Braille is fascinating, like sign language. Hope you're well!

  5. No I don't use inserts. Probably should, we have such hard water here. I'd like to learn to read Braille.

    1. We eternally forget to put them in. ~grin~ I'm grateful SO thought to buy them. It would be interesting to learn sign language, too, I think, but I'm too lazy to find a reason or take the time. ~shakes head~ Be well!

  6. That is interesting. I wonder how many things have them that we don't notice.
