Single-use towels offer the most hygienic way to reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses when drying hands in the washroom.
New independent research has found that single-use paper towels are the most effective way to dry one’s hands in the washroom and reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses.
The study indicates that they help minimise the spread of viruses including ones associated with various diseases, including those causing gastro-intestinal infections such as Norovirus and Rotavirus.
Single-use towels disperse fewer microorganisms into the environment than jet air dryers and warm air dryers and also help reduce the risk that viruses are blown into the faces of small children accompanying adults in the washroom.
The findings have serious implications for washroom facility managers in settings such as hospitals and restaurants where hygiene is paramount.

Constantly delivering on innovation and sustainability, Futures Supplies has recently added the Handy Pack hand towels to its range from Metsa Tissue. A plastic case with carry handles which enhance hygiene; the new Handy Packs are extremely durable and protect the contents from moisture as well as delivering on hygiene, value and sustainability.
The Handy Packs produce less volume of waste than traditional cardboard cases and are completely recyclable. A lighter plastic casing, easily stackable and with ‘carry handles’, makes them a delight for cleaning staff to transport and distribute hand towels around the building.
With so many advantages, the Handy Pack is a ‘win win’ product.
