An Abundance Of savings Found In Hand Cleaning Towels

What if we told you that there’s a product almost every worker can use to make them more efficient AND it can pay for itself and potentially even save your company money? It obviously sounds too good to be true, but that’s exactly what can happen when you incorporate premoistened hand cleaning towels, like the industry-leading SCRUBS in-a-Bucket®, into your workplace.

In case you’re not familiar with SCRUBS-in-a-Bucket® Hand Cleaner Towels, it’s the original product that started the portable hand cleaning category over thirty years ago. These towels combine an advanced cleaning formula with a strong, dual-textured towel to thoroughly clean hands and surfaces. The clean and citrus-scented formula loosens and dissolves industrial soils while leaving hands free from dryness and irritation. The Rough Touch® blue towel locks in soil to prevent it from transferring back onto hands and surfaces. Hands are left feeling clean with no sticky residue and no rinsing required.

How Does Scrubs® Provide Cost savings?

How does an industrial strength, disposable cleaning towel really saves your company money? This is best demonstrated using a typical working scenario.

  • An employee’s hands need cleaning…so it is time to walk to a cleaning station - this trip takes time.
  • During that trip, the employee may get distracted by co-workers and start a conversation, or get on their cell phone – this, also, takes up valuable time.
  • The employee cleans their hands then walks back to their workstation; again, more time is consumed. For this scenario we’ll assume the trip to “wash hands” took 5 minutes…and in all reality, most trips could be longer in duration.

So, let’s take this scenario to the next level and consider:

  • Frequency: How many times a day does just one employee leave their workstation to clean their hands?
  • Duration: How long does it take for that one employee to leave, clean their hands, and return to work?
  • Dollars: What is your employee’s hourly salary?
  • Workforce: How many of your employees must leave their workstation to clean their hands or tools?

With those thoughts in mind, lets plug in some numbers:scrubs hand cleaner towels application

  • Suppose 1 employee takes 5 minutes to leave, wash, and return to work.
  • This one employee does this a minimum of 3 times per shift.
  • This employee hourly wage is $15 per hour.
  • So, if you run the calculation 5/60 (minutes out of an hour) multiplied by the hourly wage times 3 trips it costs your company $3.75 per employee per day to clean their hands.
  • If a SCRUBS towel costs 20 cents and your employee uses 3 per day that comes to 60 cents per day per employee. So, $3.75 less $0.60 is $3.15. That is $3.15 you could be saving PER day PER employee by switching to SCRUBS-in-a-Bucket®.
  • To take it bit further, that is $3.15/day x 5 days or $15.75 a week per employee.

If you have 10 employees that is $157.50 per week!

And where else can you find savings in using disposable hand cleaner towels? Well, using a towel service to launder rags ties up cash, costs you $$ in replacement towels.




As you can see, it all adds up very quickly and the resulting costs are more than you’ll pay for a 72-count bucket of SCRUBS® Hand Cleaner Towels. Ready to learn more?
