#TMxDOMEX Gift Pack Winners

Finally done checking all entries and drawing the recipients of DOMEX gift packs! Yey!

Out of around 200 entries, I chose to award 3 special ones – one for being the first to submit an entry; another for having the cutest picture, and the last for giving the nicest answer.  The rest of the 7 winners were drawn through Random.Org.

The first entry was submitted by Maren Sun Banaag on Twitter at 12:04PM.  I think she deserves a prize for being “maagap”. 🙂

This is my most favorite pic among all the entries.  It perfectly shows how clean and germ-free their toilet is because of Domex.  I wouldn’t let my child sit on the toilet like that if it wasn’t germ-free. 😉

Most of those who sent their entries were mothers who naturally are the ones in-charge of keeping the house clean.  SO this entry was a great surprise for me.  Her mother is sure lucky to have a daughter who doesn’t mind cleaning the toilet. 😀

#1MCleanToilets to Prevent 443 Million Missed School Days

It’s Friday the 13th tomorrow and while the superstitious anxiously dread that day, a lot of us are looking forward to it. Well, not just any Friday the 13th, I’m talking specifically about tomorrow, November 13.

What’s so special about it? November 13 is the World Toilet Day. Yes, there is such an event. Lest you think it’s a nonsensical one that is the center of butt jokes, World Toilet Day is for a noble cause. It is part of an advocacy program that aims to improve toilet sanitation.

Why the big deal about toilet sanitation, you may ask. Well, according to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), children around the world miss an estimated 443 million school days each year because of diseases caused by poor sanitation and hygiene practices, including using unsanitary toilets. Yes, 443 million school days MISSED – EACH YEAR! That’s about one month of empty grade school and high school classrooms in the Philippines!!! So, yes, toilet sanitation IS a big deal.

Every day, millions of children in rural communities and urban households nationwide are exposed to disease-carrying germs that inhabit dirty toilets. These germs can cause diarrheal diseases and parasitic worm infections which leads to nutritional deficiencies, physical and mental stunting, and even death.

For the past three years, Unilever Philippines through its germ-kill expert brand Domex, has been working with UNICEF and PPHA to champion the One Million Clean Toilets Movement. Through this advocacy, Filipino families can be educated on proper toilet hygiene and the importance of sanitized household toilets. We stress the word SANITIZE because not all clean toilets are free from germs and bacteria. It is essential for everyone to know that proper cleaning materials with effective germ-kill action must be used to clean toilets to ensure our family’s health.

So, tomorrow, November 13, join us in the One Million Clean Toilets Movement! Together, let’s join the fight against disease causing germs to save lives, one clean toilet at a time. Help spread awareness on the sanitation issue caused by unsanitary toilets by watching and sharing the “Sick Days” video. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #1MCleanToilets and #WorldToiletDay2015 when you share the video. 🙂

One View, One Pledge, One Million Clean Toilets

This video should serve as a wake-up call for most of us. The little things we take for granted, like having a clean toilet, could mean the world to others and could definitely help save lives,”

– Dennis Chua, Domex Brand Manager –


How many Youtube videos do you watch every day? Here’s one that you absolutely MUST watch.  Every unique view this video gets, counts as a pledge. And for every pledge received, P5 will be donated by Domex to UNICEF’s sanitation program which aims to improve access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world.

1 unique view = 1 pledge = P5 donation

That means that just by taking a few minutes to view the video below you are already helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities.  Encourage your family and friends to watch the video as well. Join the Domex One Million Clean Toilets Movement and help save lives together.

Community welcomes arrival of clean toilets in “Fiesta” video

It’s a scene typically played out during fiestas: People rushing to the streets, drawn to the sound of a marching band. Everyone is smiling, eager to see the “star” of the celebration. But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility.

Aptly titled “Fiesta”, the Domex video, produced by Unilever Philippines, is available on Youtube and shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. “The video aims to make people realize the value of a toilet which most of us, unfortunately, take for granted,” said Dennis Chua, Domex Brand Manager.

The “Fiesta” video contributes to the efforts of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement. Each unique view translates into a pledge for the advocacy campaign which collects pledges from households to conscientiously maintain their own hygienic bathrooms. For every pledge received, Domex will donate P5 to UNICEF’s sanitation program, towards improving access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world, including the Philippines.

“By watching the ‘Fiesta’ video and asking our friends to watch it, we are not only raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation, more importantly, we are helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities,” said Benjie Yap, Unilever Foods and Home Care Vice President.

Clean toilets, germ-free communities

All over the country, people are welcoming the construction of new toilet facilities and the repair of dilapidated ones, since becoming aware of its role in disease prevention, especially among children.

According to the Department of Health, of the estimated 3,420 diarrhea-related deaths among Filipino children under 5 every year, around 2,000 could have been prevented by access to safe water, improved toilet sanitation and personal hygiene.

This video should serve as a wake-up call for most of us. The little things we take for granted, like having a clean toilet, could mean the world to others and could definitely help save lives,” Chua said.

Press Release: SHELL launches DEEP CLEAN WEEK with DOMEX

(Press Release)


Pilipinas Shell today launched its Deep Clean Week at retail stations around the country, partnering with Unilever through Domex under its 1M Clean Toilets Movement.

Shell one million clean toilets

Traveling during peak seasons introduces heightened risks of acquiring diseases. Oftentimes, gas stations along major roads become the necessary stop-over points for commuters and private motorists, resulting in crowded, busy use of retail station facilities. In fact, customers are more upset by failures that inconvenience them directly, such as dirty pumps, slippery floors, and dirty toilets.

To address this, Shell has partnered with Unilever through Domex for Deep Clean Week, a project to clean up Shell stations around the country, and the 1 Million Clean Toilets program, an advocacy that aims to raise awareness on the need for proper toilet sanitation and to help improve access to clean toilets. Domex wants to empower and inspire Filipinos to clean their own toilets with specialized cleaners in an effort to reduce the incidence of diseases that are related to lack of proper toilet sanitation.

“Deep Clean Week is about spotting areas of the station that are not part of the everyday cleaning cycle. Building on the enthusiasm from 2013, I am excited to launch this year’s Deep Clean Week. We’ve listened to your feedback from last year and have refreshed a number of our tools to make this year’s programme even more successful and truly impactful,” said Oying Yam, Vice President for Retail.

Shell, the global leader in power, energy, and gas technology, recognizes the need to provide clean and bright facilities to its customers. Beginning May 12, staff will visit a site and work alongside retailers to improve site cleanliness. Volunteers will assess three key areas in Shell facilities: Cleanliness; Condition/Maintenance (whether the site is suitably maintained); and Compliant to Shell brand standards.
