Thanks to all that attended our Airx Training Day on Friday the 21st at the Bullen facility. We had sales reps from Odorite of Baltimore, MD and South Jersey Paper of Vineland, NJ. Airx Training Day is an in depth class for DSR's to learn what makes Airx different than other odor control products and how to help solve your customers pathogen and odor problems. Attendees will left with extensive product knowledge, how to problem solve odor and pathogen issues and how to use social media, use of samples and literature to generate interest and repeat orders.

SURVEY: Men Wash Hands Less Than Women

In another round in the Men Vs. Women debate, a new survey from the Bradley Corporation shows that men are less likely to wash their hands than women.According to the 2013 Healthy Handwashing Survey, just 60 percent of men say they always wash their hands after using a public restroom, as compared to more than 74 percent of women. 

While men cited the lack of soap in restrooms, as well as dirty sinks as the main reasons for not washing up, women reported they used hand sanitizer instead.

Men were also more than 2.5 times more likely than women to say they “didn’t feel the need,” to wash hands, the survey says.

“Men need to get the memo that hand washing is important no matter what,” says Jon Dommisse, director of global marketing and strategic development at Bradley. “You just can’t argue with the research that says
it is the number one way to prevent illness and stay healthy.”

So what does this say for us in the cleaning industry? I would say we need to make it as easy as possible for people to wash or sanitize their hands. It is also shows that training is important. The comment of "didn't feel the need" means that people are not aware of what effect there can be from NOT washing their hands. We have educate the end user how important it is for people to perform this simple step. 

In closing despite the warning of snow coming to our area next Tuesday I think I can announce that winter is over (it is officially spring). I was out with a chain saw Saturday afternoon working on all of the tree limbs that I can see now that the snow has melted. Great work out but not fun.

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
