You buy wipes to use in the bathroom because, let’s face it, toilet paper isn’t always enough to feel fresh and clean. Did you know that by using the typical tub-of-wipes containers, you and others can be exposed to some pretty nasty germs, like Staph and E-coli?
THINK ABOUT THIS: How many wipes came (new) in that container sitting behind your toilet …30, 40, 50 sheets?
For this example, let’s say the wipes container sitting behind your toilet originally came (new) with 50 wipes, and that 20 wipes are still left inside.
Here’s the Math:
30 wipes have been used
X 5 touches, per use*
= 150 “BATHROOM HANDS”
…By the time a 50-Count wipe container is empty, that container has been contaminated by about 250 “bathroom hands”. And, depending if you are replenishing that same wipes container with more wipes, you could be touching a container that has been touched by bathroom hands 2 -10X more than that!
Considering that only 5% of people that wash their hands wash them good enough to be clean**, we will let you draw your own conclusions as to how gross the surfaces of that tub of wipes could be. Whether it is just you or, there are multiple people using that same wipes container in the bathroom, it is an unsanitary method that can contribute to the spreading of germs.
Fortunately, Tidymates® systems convenient location keeps “Bathroom Hands” OFF because of its 1 finger dispensing, and also because of its anti-bacterial lid that kills Staph and E-Coli.
Regardless of how many polka-dots or fancy stripes decorate that wipes container sitting behind the toilet, tools for good personal hygiene should not be scattered all over the bathroom.
If the wipes and toilet paper are not Together, there is nothing Better about it.
Tidymates® organizes certified flushable wipes and toilet paper to a single, more sanitary, hygiene system that truly is Better Together®.
*the average number times hands touched a wipe container, assuming 1 wipe per use.
Keep it Tidy!
