Cleaning Tips & Tricks
Healthy homes start with healthy hands. And having a fresh roll of Bounty at the ready is one way to boost the hygiene factor throughout your house, versus a used dishtowel. Here’s why.
Wash, Dry, Toss, RepeatOne of the easiest ways to stay on top of your hygiene game and limit cross-contamination in your home is by using Bounty to dry your hands. Since each sheet is absorbent and single use, all you have to do is dry and toss to limit the spread unwanted germs from a used dishtowel around the house or to your family1.
Keep Clean Hands, CleanYou could say drying with a dirty dishtowel is a quick way to “unwash” your hands. Hard to believe, right? But it’s true! Moist dishtowels can play home to millions of bacteria hiding between fibers and that can transfer to your hands2. In fact, these sneaky organisms will make their way to your hands even if contact with the used dishcloth is ever so brief3. At least with each fresh sheet of Bounty, you know you’re getting an absorbent and a hygienic alternative for keeping your family’s hands clean.
Ditch The Dirty DishtowelDid you know, used dishtowels can grow upwards of a billion germs in 24 hours?4 Talk about a breeding ground! That’s the last place you’ll want to be drying your freshly washed hands. Instead, grab a fresh sheet of Bounty and toss that dirty dishtowel…and everything hiding in it.
So, if you’re looking for better hand hygiene but still on team dishtowel…choose Bounty instead. That way your family can dry their hands confidently and cleanly.
