In order to prevent cross-contamination/cross-infection, wash your hands! This has been the message from various health organisations, including WHO, for the past 150 years. Even today, it is a hot topic in hospitals. Other organisations that continue to look for better hygiene are gyms, restaurants, schools and many more.
In places with no sink available, one often uses dispensers with liquid alcohol gel. The problem with these is, you may kill the bacteria on your hands, but you will not clear them away. Medicine is increasingly familiar with the health hazards from dead bacteria.
An English company, coming from a background of engineering and innovation, now proposes a ‘within arm’s reach’ product. The picture shows a wall-mounted hygiene wipes dispenser. Inside, there is a roll of 500 Z-shape-folded wipes (to enable a smaller size). The wipes have been proven to be 200% plus more efficient than alcohol gels. The plastic the dispenser is made of contains Microban, for lifetime antibacterial protection. The dispenser is sealed, to avoid any drying or contamination of wipes, yet easy to use and to refill. Various wipes are available for different market sectors - facilities maintenance, kitchens, baby products, industrial (grime).
Competition with moist wipes comes in the shape of buckets or tubs. These have small problems like drying, wipes falling into the bucket, more hassle with refilling. Also, since they are meant to be used on benches, people carry them around where they should not.
The hygiene wipes dispenser has been tested in schools, gyms, offices, kitchens and the National Health Service (NHS).
