Earth Day, The Greener The Better!

Did you know that because plastic water bottles and cups are shielded from sunlight in landfills, they will not decompose for thousands of years? Read more »


Clean Bathroom = Happy Customer

Every minute of the day that your local business’ bathroom is not clean is another chance to give a local, longtime customer the bad experience that will prevent him from coming back. Normally there is no way to tell whether you have lost customers on account of a dirty bathroom. In the same way that your business can earn a reputation around town, your business’ bathroom also gets a reputation that will stick, so to speak.

Walk into your restroom and try this exercise; can you wash your hands, dry, and leave the bathroom without making contact with any surface whatsoever? No? Well, we can help you fix that. First, use a wall-mounted touchless soap dispenser. Hygiene leader Gojo has dispensers that use factory-sealed soap refills. These are superior because they are guaranteed to be sanitary. Studies have shown that approximately 25% of open bulk soap dispensers in public restrooms contain unsafe levels of bacteria.

Bathroom Strip Complete

Next you’ll need a touchless paper towel dispenser by the sink. A step-on trash-can should be located right underneath the paper towel dispenser near the faucet. This way you can use a paper towel to turn the faucet off and throw it away, all without touching anything. You should also provide a small wastebasket near the door for those customers who like to open the door with a paper towel, so that they don’t have to make a prayer shot from half-court to throw it away. In the end it will create less work for you.

Don’t forget toilet seat covers. People use them, and its better (and more cost efficient) to have them available, instead of your customers wasting toilet paper. They will lay strips of toilet paper on the seat, and then it ends up on the floor most of the time, which means now you’ve not only wasted money, but the bathroom looks dirty and unkempt. Never underestimate the power of a clean bathroom!

How to find the best value in paper towels

Today we’re imparting a few useful tips on purchasing paper towels that will help save money. Many people don’t realize that two rolls that appear to be the same size can actually contain very different quantities. Similar to the way that potato chip bags are sold only about half full, or the way that fast-food restaurants will serve you soda in a cup that is mostly filled with ice, some paper towel companies use a handful of techniques to give less.

Paper towels with embossed or quilted patterns can outperform regular rolls for certain cleanup jobs, but keep in mind that the embossing causes the paper towel to be much thicker, which means you get less sheets per roll. When buying, keep in mind what your main purpose for these towels will be. Quilted paper towels are better suited for the kitchen, while plain paper towels are a better value for the bathroom sink.

Take advantage of buying paper towels in bulk online. For disposables that you know you will use up eventually, bulk pricing can give you a major advantage. Disposables are normally not available in bulk locally, but has great discounts on bulk paper towel products, many of which will be delivered in as little as one business day. For example, this carton of Scott paper towels with absorbency pockets is only about $1.45 per roll!

Lastly, try paper towels with smaller perforated sheets. Instead of offering sheets in 11 inch squares, paper towel manufacturers like Seventh Generation have recently started offering paper towels with twice the perforations, making it easier to use the proper amount for the job. Try these tips and order paper towels from to see how little advantages like these add up to big savings.

Product Review: Boardwalk 6400 Center Pull Paper Towels

If you are buying supplies for your business’s restrooms, go with center-pull paper towels. I’ve found that they are the cheapest and most efficient type of hand drying amenity you can get.

Boardwalk 6400 center pull paper towels six packBoardwalk is the janitorial supplies brand that I use for paper towels. Customers have rated the Boardwalk 6400 centerpull paper towels a whopping 5 1/2 out of 6 stars because’s price on the item is unbeatable, and the product itself lasts longer than other types of paper towel. You can get a case of 6 two-ply centerpull paper towel rolls for $22.49 as of this writing; that’s only $3.75 for about a month of normal paper use.

The advantages of centerpull paper towels

Business owners look at the world differently. Everything is in terms of cost, efficiency and return on investment. If you are a business owner, you know better than anyone that little expenses add up! Let’s talk about the advantages of using centerpull paper towels. that you may not have considered.

San Jamar centerpull paper towel dispenser
San Jamar centerpull paper towel dispenser

A centerpull paper towel dispenser is a wall-mounted container for what looks like a roll of paper towels, but shorter and wider. Instead of unraveling the paper from the outside, perforated sections are pulled starting from the core going out, like in the photo to the left. This San Jamar translucent blue model is one of our most popular models, and is compatible with our top-selling centerpull paper towel refill by Boardwalk.

The first major advantage of using centerpull paper towels is that the dispensers are very cheap. The design of the dispensers are very simplistic and have no moving parts, yet at the same time they are more efficient at dispensing than electric or hand operated dispensers with less jamming. You’re sure to find something that fits your current style from’s selection of centerpull paper towel dispensers.

Almost all centerpull paper towel dispensers have a translucent body, making it easy to tell when the dispenser is getting low so you can refill the towels before they run out. Usually with multifold paper towel dispensers, you won’t know that you’ve run out until a customer complains that the bathroom has no more paper towels. If you’re looking for centerpull paper towel refills, you can save by buying them in bulk with free shipping by getting them from

The reason why I would not suggest going with an electric blower instead of a paper towel dispenser is that your customers may sometimes want to wash their face as well as their hands. Getting blasted in the face with hot, moldy air is not pleasant (trust me!). There have been times when I’ve washed my face in a public bathroom, only to realize that there are no paper towels!

Centerpull paper towel dispensers and electric blowers share one great advantage; you don’t have to touch anything. Statistical reports show figures anywhere between 10%-40% of people who use a public bathroom don’t wash their hands, so you are going to want to make it possible for your customers to dry their hands and leave the bathroom without touching anything other than a paper towel. When you own multifold paper towel dispensers, your customers still have to push a lever to get the paper towel, which makes their hands dirty again. There are motion-activated paper towel dispensers (that are five times more expensive than centerpull paper towel dispensers), but for the most part they are slow, jam often, and the sensor doesn’t work all of the time. In this economy, you don’t want your customers to experience the slightest inconvenience, when it could be prevented by using centerpull paper towels. Since the cost of the dispenser and refills are very cheap, you have nothing to lose by browsing our selection.
