Word of the Day


Pronunciation /ˈsanɪt(ə)ri/
1 Relating to the conditions that affect hygiene and health, especially the supply of sewage facilities and clean drinking water.
1.1 Hygienic and clean.

Mid 19th century from French sanitaire, from Latin sanitas ‘health’, from sanus ‘healthy’.


Sadly, keeping a place clean does not always mean the same as keeping it sanitary. Sterile goes even beyond that.
