Six months into the COVID-19 pandemic and we’re all well practised at washing our hands and touching as little as possible when we’re outside our homes and workplaces. Yes, we’ve all used automatic hand sanitiser dispensers in supermarkets and we immediately wash our hands or use antibacterial hand gel before eating in a restaurant. But did you know there are ways to make scenarios like this even more-virus-free?

Read on to find out all about our innovative products:

  • Automatic soap dispenser
  • Automated paper-towel dispenser
  • Automatic hand sanitiser dispenser

Maybe it’s time to go touch-free to help manage a potential second coronavirus wave?

Firstly, did you know that sales of hand soap have soared this year? And rightly so. It’s been reported that sales increased by 102% at the start of March compared to 2019. And that went up even more when the lockdown was initiated. People at home stocked up for the long run, and it certainly changed the way we think about our hands outside.

Similarly in the workplace, hand washing and good hygiene are essential to help prevent the spread of viruses and disease. And there’s loads of government guidance on how offices and workplaces can make a difference, but you can’t make people do anything.

Did you know that before the pandemic it was estimated only 60% of office workers in the UK washed their hands after going to the toilet? Source

All you can do is follow the guidance and try installing an easy, touch-free soap dispenser instead of a countertop version as a way to encourage it.

Benefits of an automatic soap dispenser:

  • Less chance of contamination
  • Less soap wastage
  • Less time in the bathroom
  • Cleaner, less cluttered bathroom space

Hand drying is just as, if not more important than washing your hands. This is because research shows that,

The transmission of bacteria is more likely to occur from wet skin than from dry skin; therefore, the proper drying of hands after washing should be an integral part of the hand hygiene process in health care.” Source

So, especially now, drying your hands thoroughly after washing is imperative.

The types of hand drying:

  • Hand towels are what we use at home to dry our hands, which is fine. But did you know that you should be changing them out for fresh ones every two days?
  • Air dryers are popular in commercial settings as they are considered more eco-friendly. However, while they don’t contribute to the spread of COVID-19, they do take a long time to dry your hands – usually 30 seconds, which is a long time when you’re in a rush. As a result, there are more people leaving with wet hands, and as we know, wet or damp hands are ideal for bacteria spreading.
  • Paper towels are the most effective way to dry your hands during the pandemic. They’re faster and more effective at drying hands and therefore, reducing the risk of contamination.

We’ve already touched on hand sanitising stations in a previous blog post, but their effectiveness and importance can’t be understated.

To clarify, these stations are hugely useful in reducing the spread of viruses in public and crowded places, and touch-free hand sanitiser dispenser stations add that extra hygienic edge.
