The dirty secret of the hand towel
We all know that dirty hands can transmit germs and how important it is that we wash our hands before eating, preparing and handling food, after using the toilet or sneezing. But washing doesnt solve the whole problem when it comes to getting hands clean. Because no matter how clean and bacteria free hands are after washing, drying them on an ordinary kitchen hand towel simply smears bacteria back on to them.
Hand towels in your kitchen and toilet are notorious for harbouring and breeding bacteria fuelled by their shared and frequent use as well as the damp, temperature and humidity conditions that enable bacteria to multiply uncontrollably!
Tests show that bacteria on a towel can grow from one to 2/3 million in a kitchen or washroom in a matter of just four hours - to 1 billion after 1 days normal use - to 10 billion 2-3 days later and to 100 billion plus by the end of the week!
Given that we wash hand towels once every week on average its no wonder that hygienic hand drying is of such crucial importance in the promotion of good food safety, health and personal hygiene.
It seems that no matter how meticulously you wash your hands, drying them on an ordinary hand towel simply smears bacteria right back on to them.
The answer, HYGI HAND TOWELS!
Keep your germs to yourself!
More than 18 million people in the UK risk transferring germs each day from bacteria laden hands to the face, foods, food preparation surfaces, cutlery and crockery, light switches, telephones, taps and other people as a result of not washing or drying their hands properly.
However, more often than not its the drying process thats at the root of the problem where hand towels are prone to bacterial colonisation and so can transmit bacteria and cause cross contamination.
Indeed many of the millions of cases every year of stomach bugs and food poisoning in the home, which can be serious especially for the elderly and children can be attributed to the hygienic weakness of the ordinary hand towel.
Hand drying matters!
How you dry your hands contributes significantly to how clean your hands are and therefore the removal of the risk of cross infection.
