A refresher (or 'fresher) was a term for a commode, or, more generically, a lavatory. (TOS novel: The Lost Years; DS9 - Worlds of DS9 novel: Andor: Paradigm, et.al.)

24th century refreshers disposed of waste material with transporter-based dematerialization process, breaking waste into simple inert compounds, which could then be utilized in other replication systems within an integrated system. Portable 'freshers could also be deployed on temporary emergency basis, safely keeping the inert matter in storage. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)

A refresher, sometimes (though rarely) called a bathroom or rest room, was a room intended for the purpose of washing, bathing and releasing bodily wastes. Refreshers were known to contain any of the following fixtures: a shower, (or sonic shower, sanisteam or turboshower), a bath (or sonic bath or ripple bath), a faucet and sink, effluvial rinser, toilet, and sanitizer. They came in various configurations, from small freshers for starships, to large ornate rooms in private residences. The temperature of the refresher was usually adjustable. Some refreshers contained privacy screens.

The term refresher is alternatively used to describe a toilet alone, rather than the whole washroom.

Behind the scenes

Refreshers don't appear in the apartments and houses explored in games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Galaxies. This is, of course, game mechanics (generally toilets don't appear in computer games where they are expected) One may also assume that there are other ways to resolve the issue, such as a public refresher the residents can visit, not visited in the games. Only one location can be seen in Star Wars: Bounty Hunter in the animal herder's apartment on Outland Station. A public 'fresher can be visited by Kyle Katarn in Star Wars: Dark Forces, where he can "surprise" stormtroopers and mercenaries standing with their back to him along a line of urinals on Fuel Station Ergo. In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, a datapad can be found in a refresher that belonged to Sien, the Mine Foreman at the Peragus Mining Facility. If played, Coorta's voice can be heard saying "And shut that damn datapad off and throw it down the refresher."
