Definition
practices promoting the prevention of illness and maintenance of health — such as cleanliness or promoting sanitary conditions
  • Not for nothing was the word "latrine-rumour" invented; these places are the regimental gossip-shops and common-rooms. We feel ourselves for the time being better off than in any palatial white-tiled "convenience." There it can only be hygienic; here it is beautiful. These are wonderfully care-free hours.
