We’ve all been to public restrooms where the automatic toilets flush when we’re done. Sometimes when that automatic toilet flushes for me, a little thought pops into my head: I wish my toilet at home would flush without me having to touch the handle. That thought is quickly followed up by: Automatic toilets probably cost too much to put into a regular house, and I’d have to hire a plumber to install one anyway, and plumbers are expensive. Have you ever wondered about getting a no-touch toilet for your bathroom?
Thank you to The Home Depot for sponsoring today’s discussion about touchless technology products for a healthier home. All opinions expressed are my own.
Well, guess what, friends? I found out that automatic toilets aren’t just for public restrooms and fancy homes…they are actually a quite affordable way to turn our home’s bathroom into a cleaner environment. Just think of all the germs you’ll miss out on when you don’t have to touch the flush handle. Plus, you can probably install one of these toilets without hiring a plumber. Just pick up a Kohler Touchless Toilet at Home Depot, watch the few instructional videos online and you are on your way to becoming an avid DIY’er (Do-It-Yourself-er).
Most people think you can only get sick if someone coughs or sneezes on you. The reality is that more than 80% of germs are actually spread through touching common surfaces. Viruses can live on commonly touched areas for hours – including toilet flush handles and sink fixtures. Anyone who touches an infected surface can potentially get sick. It is important to wash our hands to prevent the spread of germs. Touchless technology products reduce the amount of surfaces we need to touch, which also helps prevent the spread of germs in our home.
Make your kitchen a healthier kitchen with a touchless kitchen faucet. A modern, smart faucet like the Moen Hayswood Pull Down Kitchen Faucet with MotionSense automatically turns on and off with just a wave of your hand. A hands-free faucet makes working in the kitchen easier, more convenient and helps you control the spread of germs.
See? There’s really no reason for me to be jealous of a public restroom’s touchless technology. I can enjoy all the same conveniences and more in my very own home.
What do you think about the Touchless Toilets and Kitchen Faucets? Are you a fan of touchless technology? How do you prevent the spread of germs at home?
