Pink Hygiene Issue Toilet Sneeze Warning for Workplaces
Date:5/13/2009

Pink Hygiene Solutions has issued a simple warning to minimise the risk of surface contamination in washrooms caused by the 'sneeze effect' of flushing toilets.

Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) May 13, 2009 -- Did you know that flushing toilets 'sneeze' dirty water and virtually invisible faecal matter over toilets seats and washroom surfaces, potentially spreading bacteria such as E coli and risking the health and safety of your workforce?

Pink Hygiene Solutions has issued a simple warning to minimise the risk of surface contamination in washrooms - put the lid down when you flush and consider a professional cubicle hygiene treatment program.

"Every time a toilet is flushed, a fine mist is created called the 'Sneeze Effect', which sees germs propelled into the atmosphere where they can be inhaled and deposited around the cubicle," said Vivian Oppl, Marketing Manager for Pink.

"While putting the lid down can help to reduce the sneeze effect, which can spread bacteria several metres from the toilet and be present for up to half an hour after flushing, germs can sometimes still be detected at head height," Ms Oppl said.

Independent research recently conducted for Pink shows that 77 per cent of people will go to great lengths to avoid touching a toilet seat and 47 per cent avoid directly touching the flush button.

"Most people are instinctively concerned about the cleanliness of public toilets but with good hygiene practice, coupled with the useful products and services on the market now for public washrooms, Australian workers should enjoy cleaner and more hygienic workplaces," Ms Oppl said.

"Pink's sanitiser system is designed to provide on-going protection against the build up of scale and prevent bacterial infection by releasing a specially formulated solution into the flush."

"Our toilet seat sanitising spray is also popular as it dispenses an alcohol-based solution for the user to wipe the seat and comes in a ready-to-wipe tissue as well. This ensures bacteria aren't merely moved around when wiping the toilet seat with toilet paper."

"Great workplaces have great washroom facilities and research shows staff are appreciative of any measures to improve cleanliness."

"With professional washroom services and the adoption of simple habits such as putting the lid down when flushing, and proper hand washing and drying, the health and wellbeing of staff can be guarded," Ms Oppl said.

Pink also recommends people put their tooth brushes in the cupboard and away from their toilet at home, to minimise the impact of the 'sneeze effect'.
