Welcome to the 21st Century! Go Touchless!
Nowadays, the techno world has even conquered the common household trash can. With the emergence of contagious diseases such as H1N1, staph infections, and MRSA, people are struggling to keep their hands clean, and their homes as germ free as possible. Trashcans, along with toilets and door handles, are probably considered among the dirtiest, germ offenders in your house. But AHA! Why not get yourself a touchless motion sensor trashcan, and have one less thing to worry about?
Touchless trash cans are operated by an infrared motion sensor, which opens when you get within a certain distance of the opening (usually around 5-6 inches), and closes automatically, after your have deposited your trash and move your hand away. You don’t have to touch the lid, so your hands stay germ- and bacteria-free. And your kids will love it, because it’s a gadget, and you won’t have to remind them to wash their hands (again!), because they haven’t touched it! Also- the lid closes more tightly than traditional cans, so unwanted odor is kept to a minimum. Obviously, they use batteries (although some do offer an optional adapter), which only need to be changed yearly on average.
Variety is key, and touchless cans now come in a variety of finishes, such as stainless steel, plastic, and wood, as well as a wide array of colors to choose from. They also come in several sizes and shapes. They are a must for the kitchen, office, bathroom- anywhere!
