By: Keith Schneringer  |  July 23, 2021

Part one of a series analyzing the continued impact of COVID-19 on the facility supplies and foodservice disposables industries


The COVID-19 pandemic has dominated the news and collective psyche of the world throughout 2020, and its spread and the resulting cascade of ramifications have led to a global crisis of unprecedented reach and proportion.1 As was written in one of our articles on this topic last year,2 it would be the height of understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic and oversized impact on many of the facets of our everyday lives which we may have previously taken for granted.

Can Bulk Soap Be Contaminated?


How Does it Happen? Bacteria from fecal matter & other sources can grow inside the dispenser.

By: Keith Schneringer  |  July 3, 2019

The sad truth is that soap from bulk soap dispensers is prone to becoming contaminated.

According to recent studies, contaminated soap may actually do the opposite of what they're supposed to do. Instead of removing germs, they may be adding some!

Think about it – in order to refill a bulk soap dispenser, the dispenser and the left over soap remaining inside of it are exposed to the environment. Airborne germs, foreign objects, and potential inadvertent hand contact from a janitor who may have just cleaned the toilets can all mix in to the bulk soap dispenser and contribute to possible contamination. Not to mention the more sinister prospect of contamination through intentional vandalism to the bulk soap as it sits in an “open” bulk soap dispenser.
