Smart Washroom – Hand Hygiene

Till swine flu panic gripped the world, washing hands was considered to be the best way to maintain personal hygiene and protect oneself from diseases. But as fear of the disease started spreading, the importance of hand sanitizers came to the fore. Clean India Journal explains why hand-sanitizers play a vital role in a Smart Washroom.

Smart Washrooms-Tissues

Second in the series on Smart Washroom, in this issue CIJ focuses on Tissues, the various kinds of tissues and their usage. Tissues enhance the hygiene factor as it is meant only for one time use, whether to wipe hands after using the toilet or the face after a wash. Toilet tissues, on the other hand, help clean the toilet seat before and after use, making it a hygienic experience for any user. Few of the industry experts share their view on the importance of tissues.

Soap Dispensers in Smart Washrooms

In the last couple of years, high tech washrooms with self rotating sanitized toilet seats, sensor based lighting systems, luxurious self-cleaning combination toilet bidet that warms up when in use, remote controlled hand-free motion sensor operations, music and built-in speakers have created waves world over. While many are awe-inspired by the improved washroom luxury, the pressing need for hygienic washrooms has led many others to adopt best practices which make a Smart Washroom possible. In a series, starting from this issue, CIJ will be carrying articles on what go into making a Smart Washroom. Smart washrooms are designed to meet the customer needs, says Matthew Wonnacott, Marketing Manager, Vectair Systems Inc. Such washrooms are a unique experience for the user. Having an automatic fragrance dispenser that only disperses a fragrance in a time interval that best meets the facilities ‘traffic’ would be considered smart – or a fully automated hand dryer that users do not have to touch to function, thus reducing the bacteria spreading to different surfaces is smart. Concisely put, “these washrooms are built with the latest technologies and are independent of manual intervention for maximum applications”, says Kartik Iyengar, Marketing Manager - Fabric Care & Personal Care, South Asia, Diversey India Pvt Ltd. Sensor based urinals or toilets which senses human presence and activates the flushing system, aesthetic looking tissue paper for face, hands & toilet, feminine hygiene bin for sanitary waste disposal, liquid hand wash dispensers with accurate dosing system, hand dryers… all make smart washrooms. Experts share below their views on soaps & dispensers and how it contributes to hygiene:
