Keep Your Hands Germ Free with the FOAMA Touchless Soap Dispenser
It’s no secret that as the temperature drops, cold and flu season rears its ugly head and begins to infiltrate our households. This year, on top of new COVID-19 strains, we’re also facing an influx of cold and flu viruses making their way through newly opened schoolyards and workplaces. While the severity of these viruses may pale in comparison to previous COVID-19 strains, nobody wants to come down with the flu. So, what can we do to limit our risk of contracting these viruses while continuing to go about our daily lives? Well, as simple as it may seem, it all comes down to good hand hygiene.
When done properly frequent handwashing is an effective (and simple) way to prevent viruses from setting up camp in our bodies. Both COVID-19 and seasonal viruses are transmitted through respiratory droplets which are spread through touch, whether it’s skin-to-skin contact (like handshakes) or a secondary object (like a doorknob). The infection doesn’t happen through our skin, however, it’s when we touch our faces, or more specifically the mouth, nose, or eyes that allows the virus to enter our bodies. And although hand sanitizers are a great way to reduce the risk of infection on the go, washing our hands with soap and water is more effective at decreasing virus transmission.
While it may be common knowledge that viruses can live on surfaces for days if not properly disinfected, we don’t usually consider our soap dispensers as a germ-ridden culprit. Unfortunately, viruses can live on plastic surfaces like sanitizer pumps and soap dispensers for up to 72 hours. When you consider the number of people using soap dispensers in schools and offices it’s easy to see how 72 hours of germs from potentially hundreds of different people could make you sick. You may be wondering how you and your family are supposed to remain germ-free if the very dispenser we use to wash our hands could make us sick – and we have a solution for just that!
Our FOAMA Touchless Foaming Soap Dispenser utilizes automated touchless technology, so you don’t have to worry about all those pesky little germs on the pump. With three adjustable volume settings and a unique splash-resistant design, it’s ideal for messy little hands that tend to use a bit too much soap. Just mix up your favourite hand soap with a bit of water, pop in 4 AAA batteries, and you’re good to go!
