Hand Hygiene Day

The Hand Hygiene Day 2015 is fast approaching so get involved and show your support for Hand Hygiene by using the hashtag #safeHANDS. 

Hand Hygiene Day is a chance for everyone involved with healthcare and hand hygiene to really shout about how important hand hygiene is. Infections spread by hand contact are a big problem in today’s world with infections leading to serious health problems, increased pressure on healthcare organisations and increased resistance to antibiotics. Here at the Hygiene Company we know its an important issue and this is why we promote good hand hygiene with all our products.  Raising awareness for this global issue will help so many vulnerable people as World Health Organisation Leader Professor Didier Pittet explains here:

Safe hands save lives, that is clear. The energy and commitment shown around the globe in support of 5 May is incredible! This social movement shows that health workers all over the world are committed to keeping patients safe every day with this simple, yet life-saving, action. Please keep going, please continue to promote hand hygiene at the point of care as a key quality indicator of safe health-care systems. I thank you and look forward to seeing more of your 5 May activities.

Spring Cleaning at The Hygiene Company

Spring has sprung! So now its the ideal time to get a little spring cleaning under your belt. Here are a few handy tips compiled by The Hygiene Company team…

The Dish Sponge. The average dish scrubber and sponge has around 10million bacteria living on every square inch. Not great considering its supposed to be something to keep your dishes clean! Tip: Try Microwaving the sponge for 2 minutes every other day to kill the harmful bacteria.

The Chopping Board. Your chopping board is used to prepare so many different types of food so the chances of bacteria build up are very high. The average chopping board has more two hundred times more fecal bacteria than a toilet seat. Its certainly time to give your chopping board a spring clean. Tip: Clean the board with a baking soda and water paste.

Refrigerator Seals. Mold is usually a big problem in these areas, 83% of the time refrigerator seals have mold present. Tip: Use WD-40 or a similar spray oil to deplete the mold and vinegar to keep the mold away.
