We are taught from a very young age that clean hands are important; as children, we are instructed to wash them before eating, after visiting the restroom, following contact with sick individuals and any time they appear dirty.
Handwashing is the single most effective means of preventing the spread of infection, and more than 20 studies show that, on average, good hand hygiene practices can reduce illness and absence rates and the associated costs by around 40 percent.
For the 71 percent of Americans that a recent survey from SCA Tissue says actually wash after using the restroom — not just the quick rinse-and-dash, that doesn’t count — a solution is needed for removing moisture from their hands.
A clean and attractive restroom should be the minimum standard; for facilities that want to leave a lasting impression on tenants and visitors alike, an aesthetically pleasing, hygienic restroom should be the goal. Selecting the right dispensers is one way to achieve both objectives.
