WASHCUBE BENEFITS FOR FITNESS AND TRAINING STUDIOS – THE BEST OPTION IS SOAP & WATER!
We are all glad to hear about Fitness and Training Studios reopening in Washington state. Not only because we can get back into taking care of our physical and mental body, but also because COVID-19 closures had studios struggling to stay alive. While the businesses are still not allowed to work at a 100% capacity, they can reopen by following some certain health and safety requirements.
One of the requirements being repetitive hand washing though out the day, for trainers and clients. During the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping hands clean is especially important to help prevent the virus from spreading.
Here are some of the requirements:
Trainers must wash their hands and use hand sanitizer before each session.
Ensure frequent handwashing for including before and after going to the bathroom, before and after eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing their nose.
Place tissues, hand sanitizer, and trash cans throughout the workplace in places easily reached by people of all heights and abilities.

This is where we would like to reintroduce our Hand Wash Station – WASHCUBE, a portable, touchless hand wash station that can be easily placed at any location and moved from room to room on its wheels if necessary. WASCHCUBE has a powerful fanspray that washes your hands quickly, on the side it has attachable hand towel, soap and hand sanitizer station. With hand WASHCUBE you can provide an easy access to water at any location instead of constant hand sanitizer use throughout the day.
"CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The guidance for effective handwashing and use of hand sanitizer in community settings was developed based on data from a number of studies." Ref.: cdc.gov
While Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of microbes on hands in some situations, sanitizers do not eliminate all types of germs. The best option is still soap and water. According to a 2019 study by the American Society for Microbiology, using running water and soap to wash your hands is more effective than a dab of gel that you have not quite rubbed in.
