Want to Save Your Business Money? Start With Restroom Supplies & Calculate What You Should Be Paying For Soap

Wasted and unused products for facility maintenance are wasted money. Pennies add up and your business shouldn’t have to lose them to something as manageable as the cost of soap.

Yes, soap. Everything has a price: pay per view, pay per click, pay per mile, pay per word, even pay per soap use. Think of it like this: How much does it cost your business each time someone washes their hands?

Restroom dispensers including towels, tissue, and soap make up 75% of your restroom supply expense. You should choose janitorial supply products and dispensers that minimize the cost of soap per use while promoting maximum cleanliness. That’s a win-win for your budget and sanitation.

Let’s take a look at how you can crunch those slippery numbers in your favor…
