Toilet Seat Wipes – Why should we use them?

08/10/2020   ●    3 minute read

The common toilet is where nasty bacteria and germs can thrive the most intensely.

It really comes as no surprise when Microban researchers discovered that on a standard 16.5 inch toilet bowl, you could be exposed to more than 34,000 units of bacteria in total. With the public toilet seat frequently coming into contact with many people, maintaining its cleanliness is extremely important. This especially goes for businesses who often have various employees and customers visiting the washroom several times in a day. 

That’s why toilet seat wipes can be a simple yet efficient weapon to fight against all the stains, bacteria, and horrible odour coming from your business’s toilets. Now, let’s take a look at why using toilet seat wipes for your washroom is absolutely necessary and beneficial. Also, feel free to check out other product suggestions outlined further below to help you thoroughly cleanse all the toilets in your workplace!

Minimise Bacterial Infection & Diseases

There’s no doubt that dirty toilet seats are the bane of everyone’s existence. 

According to a 2011 research paper, tiny droplets of water can spray up from the bowl after you flush the toilet. The microbes in these descending water droplets quickly land on the toilet seat, and even settle on other surfaces around the washroom cubicle – this includes the door handle, floor and toilet paper dispenser. With such a large surface area being affected from one simple toilet flush – known as a “toilet plume”, you do not want to take any chances. 

Even worse, these droplets may contain infection-spreading bacteria such as E. coli, which can remain airborne near the toilet for up to half an hour after flushing. More research has shown that even persistent flushing cannot remove these bacteria and viruses – this is due to the absorption of the microorganisms to the porcelain surfaces of the toilet bowl. By using toilet seat wipes, you can more effectively minimise the risks of catching bacterial infections and contamination. 

Toilet plume is a huge problem for all your washroom facilities, having the potential of endangering the health and wellbeing of all your staff and customers.
