This holiday season, many of us are gathering together after a different type of holiday season in 2020. We are likely taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of our friends and families as we look forward to celebrating this special season with our loved ones.
The past year and a half have taught many of us about our own sanitation habits, and I for one have picked up habits that I know will last for a lifetime. For example, I do not think you will ever catch me leaving home without a pocket-sized hand sanitizer again!
As you look forward to celebrating and want to check off items on Santa’s wishlist for your friends and family, we invite you to consider some of our favorite products from simplehuman, as the gifts of sanitation keep on giving throughout the year!
One of our favorite most anticipated products of 2021 is the simplehuman cleanstation. This touch-free device is designed to clean 99.9 percent of germs on your cell phone in just 30 seconds. It is the perfect companion for your favorite simplehuman soap dispensers, as your phone will be clean in the time that you should be washing your hands (no more singing “Happy Birthday!” twice through for me with this product in my life!). If you are running short on countertop space near your sink, another great place to keep your cleanstation is right by the entryway to your home.
According to simplehuman’s research, the average person touches their phone 2,617 times per day, which means I must touch mine at least 19,542 times per day since I cannot seem to put it down. Having a cleanstation, I am less concerned about the germs I am transferring to my screen and case, as they will be a tough match for the high-intensity UV-C LED lights that are designed to cover the phone’s entire surface. There are dimensions on simplehuman’s site, and the great news is that this device accommodates all of the phones in my household.
If you are banking on Santa’s elves to help you prepare your holiday meal this year, we have a great suggestion for a backup plan considering the elves are probably preoccupied. simplehuman’s voice + sensor cans allow you to continue the touch-free holiday traditions without having to worry about spreading germs to your trash can lid as you prepare everything fit for a Feast of the Seven Fishes. Simply say “open can” and the lid will elevate so that you can swiftly toss your mess without creating a new one! Our nieces and nephews already love saying “open can” and helping out in the kitchen. If you don’t want to interrupt the holiday singalong, the can also responds to motion for equally seamless waste disposal.
If you are on Santa’s Nice List and are looking for last minute gifts that will help your holiday entertaining and keep you sanitary all year round, we stand by these products, and recommend checking the simplehuman website (twice!) for even more inspiration.
