KEEPING YOUR BATHROOM NEAT AND TIDY: THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT
WHAT IS HYGIENE AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on hygiene. The biggest reason for this was the Covid pandemic. Every day we are reminded and confronted with it, for example when visiting the supermarket or restaurant. Since Covid, it is still possible to disinfect your hands with a gel almost everywhere. But what is hygiene and why is it so important?
Hygiene is a collective name for all actions that ensure that you come into contact with pathogens as little as possible. Think of washing your hands, taking a shower, and keeping your bathroom clean. This is necessary because there are microorganisms everywhere; on your hands and body, but also in the bathroom. Examples of microorganisms are bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Most microorganisms are harmless, but there are also pathogens, such as viruses. So it's better to be on the safe side and work hygienically.
3 TIPS FOR GOOD HYGIENE IN YOUR BATHROOM
1. USE A GOOD-WORKING SOAP DISPENSER
It can be read above that the bathroom is used on average 3 to 4 times a day. This can be for showering and brushing your teeth, but also for using the toilet. Washing your hands after a long (work) day is important for good hygiene in the bathroom. A good soap dispenser is crucial for this. Preferably a soap dispenser with a sensor, where the soap dispenser does not have to be touched. Not touching the soap dispenser ensures that no bacteria accumulated during the day end up on the soap dispenser. At EKO we have the perfect soap dispenser to keep hygiene in order in your bathroom. The Aroma Smart Deluxe Liquid soap dispenser is a non-contact soap dispenser equipped with a sensor and high-efficiency pump. Because of the high-efficiency pump, the soap is dispensed in just 0.2 seconds, without touching the dispenser. The Aroma Smart Deluxe Liquid soap dispenser is available in three different colors, which makes it suitable for almost every bathroom style.
2. PUT YOUR WASTE IN A BIN
You may not immediately think about it, but you also produce quite a bit of waste in the bathroom. Think of empty toilet rolls, a piece of toilet paper that you used to blow your nose, or an empty bottle of shower gel. In addition, you can also dispose of things such as cotton swabs, empty tubes of toothpaste, and sanitary towels in the bin. A small bin is an indispensable item for every bathroom!
The bathroom is used several times a day for different activities. This increases the likelihood of waste being generated. Leaving waste behind is something you want to avoid in the context of good hygiene. To ensure that waste does not remain to lie around in the bathroom, you can place a small bin that opens and closes quickly. An example of such a small bin is our Fandy Table Trash Bin 1.5L. This small, smooth, and noise-free bin is ideal for the bathroom. Besides that, the swing lid of the bin closes automatically after use. This small amazing bin is available in 5 different colors.
Some households create more waste than others. This can depend on several factors, but often it depends on the number of people in the house. For larger households, we at EKO also have 12-liter bins that are extremely suitable for the bathroom!
3. DON'T WAIT TOO LONG TO REPLACE YOUR BIN LINERS
Waiting too long to replace your bin liners can endanger hygiene in the bathroom. We recommend replacing your bin liners at least once every 10 days, provided the bins have not been filled before. At EKO we sell matching bin liners for every bin. The bin liners are specially made for EKO bins. This ensures a perfect fit and besides that, the bin liners are also extra strong.
Good hygiene in the bathroom has become increasingly important in the world we live in. To ensure good hygiene, it is important to wash your hands often, place your waste in a designated bin, and replace your bin liners in time.
EKO has several products that contribute to good hygiene. Think of soap dispensers to regularly wash your hand, small bins to throw your waste in, and strong perfectly fitting bin liners for your EKO bin. Our soap dispensers and (small) bins are available in multiple colors, which ensures that there is a matching color for every bathroom interior. Check out our full collection here.
