Travelling hygiene

Written by  Justin Thomas - Media Consultant
Travelling hygiene

Sitting at 30,000 feet I am drawn towards wondering about travelling and hygiene. In my past I have done it all. From the sneaky, walking as bold as brass through reception for a 5 star wee through to disappearing to the far side of a Russian furlong on the Mongolian Steppe to dig a hole just metres from my travelling companions to do my business. This is not, however, about that. This is about the average modern journey of the like that many of you will take with your loved ones this summer to escape the eternal British rain…..in July….and onwards.

We have customers at many of the UK’s airports and know just how important quick footfall provision is to them. From simply dispensing hygiene products efficiently, through weekly hygiene service visits to the hyper quick air blade dryers we have a keen handle on the needs of high footfall washroom environments. Once you clear security and passport control the needs are much the same. It is what happens once you are on your flight that concerns this writer having just escorted my little girl to the toilet about 5 times in 30 minutes…..eventually suggesting that she start queueing again as soon as she had finished. Parents know my pain.

We have flown a wide variety of carriers in our time and often the toilet facilities match their carrier nation's public toilets by the end of a flight. On routing, through Delhi, had the most responsive onboard service but the toilets were, quite literally, swimming at the end of our flight. Fast forward to this East Asian flag carrier and we have immaculate toilets with all the trimmings. There are optional tooth care packs, hand lotion, face misters, face lotions and even sleeping masks for us to take. East Asians are fastidiously clean as a people and this shows in their facilities on board.

So what about the place you sit? I read a report (ah, can’t reference at 30,000 feet...quite pleased the onboard wifi is dead...I’m limited in my work...which can be a good thing) about the hygiene of the tray table. See this flight picked us up en-route. This allows them no time to clean at the layover This table was handled by another person and I doubt there was much option for the airline to thoroughly clean in between every flight. This table is not a clean place. What to do when your, little, child is going to put their hands all over the table then back in their mouth? A few tips on how to pack from people that have actually opted for that number 2 at the side of the road in Mongolia because the facilities available at the last town were THAT bad!! I do not want to relive that!

First rule of combat (and I am fully converted to the hygiene hose found in Asia) is ALWAYS pack pocket tissues. They solve a myriad of problems and the one time I didn’t in Indonesia was the time when the toilet resembled your worst nightmare and my stomach could not wait. I regret that moment greatly. Number 2 is 2 types of wet-wipes. 1 needs to be the loving “Come here darling, you are wearing chocolate again!” and the other needs to kill 99.999% of ALL germs. Anti-bacterial wipes could be provided on flights but who wants to be unsure about an environment you could be stuck in for over 20 hours (London - Perth)? Pack your own! They’ll get used on holiday, for sure!

There is little that washroom hygiene firms can do to provide further support in the cramped places that are airplane washrooms. It would be nice to have the space for sanitary hygiene bins, automatic hand dryers and regular inflight cleaning. Until we can perfect those systems please remember to wipe down the sink for the next customer and, most important of all, wear decent shoes when you go!

Have a great holiday and don’t forget that Zenith Washroom Services will be available to solve all your other commercial & professional hygiene issues throughout the summer months.
