CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations Vs. Manual Sinks

Why settle for outdated manual hand wash sinks when technology has made everything easier? In today's fast-paced world, we should embrace innovation even in our hand washing routine. When we compare manual hand wash sinks to CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations, it becomes clear that the former falls short in every aspect.

Comparing the Effectiveness of Manual Hand Wash Sinks and CleanTech®

When it comes to the effectiveness of washing hands with a manual hand wash sink, it's hard to find any. We all have different hand washing techniques, and even if we follow all the proper steps, there's no guarantee that we'll wash the same way every time. There are too many variables at play, such as the type of soap used, the amount of time spent scrubbing, the touch points involved, and even the water pressure.

Comparing the Advantages of Manual Hand Wash Sinks and CleanTech®

As we have previously mentioned, manual hand wash sinks were not designed to provide the most effective hand washing experience.
