Washroom hygiene remains a barrier for Brits returning to their favourite eateries

After a challenging end to the year, creating healthy spaces and the way we fight germs is still more important than ever before.

A recent study, by leading hygiene services provider Citron Hygiene, found that 43 per cent of Brits claim having to use an ‘away from home’ washroom has affected their decision to return to their favourite shops, restaurants, or bars.

The use of hand sanitisers at the exits and motion sensors to keep things ‘hands-free’ are among the top things that would help people feel more comfortable when using a public washroom.

The study also found that a third of UK adults admitted that the increase in coronavirus cases has no bearing on how important they thought it was to wash their hands more regularly, with the average Brit soaping their hands eight times-a-day.

A washroom can go a long way to promote healthy hand care routines which is essential in controlling the spread of infections. Without the correct facilities in place, viruses and diseases have the potential to spread rapidly and aggressively.

To keep your washroom users happy, washroom supplies need to be stocked and maintained at all times. Regularly disinfecting and sanitising commonly touched surfaces such as door handles and soap levers can be key to infection control.
