Dirty hands spread germs. With the new Handwash Reminder there are no more excuses for not washing dirty hands.

This new product enforces handwashing better than anything on the planet. We all know, the more you wash your hands, the better your chances of not contracting or spreading viruses and diseases, such as the common cold, the flu, or norovirus.

This new infection prevention device has a motion sensor that activates a pre-recorded message that says "Please, don't forget to wash your hands." Yes, it actually talks to you. By providing a voice, it creates what is called "an ear worm affect" and the message stays stuck in your head.

Signs sometimes get overlooked, ignored, or are used for employees only, however, you cannot avoid a voice reminding you to wash your hands.

Wholesaler and distributor prices available upon request.
