Should I get dispensers for my cleaning supplies?
Getting a dispenser for items like feminine hygiene products, gloves, and paper towels has multiple benefits.
Dispensers Maintain Organization
Having items disseminated via dispenser means that it's easier to stay organized. When it comes to where products should be stocked and how much of a product is left, being able to install a dispenser and monitor the levels within it keeps guesswork out of your inventory process, saving you hassle and money on re-ordering supplies too early (spending funds prematurely) or too late (not having the supplies you need to do your job appropriately).
Dispensers Help Mitigate Theft
Even for free items like paper towels or gloves, having a way for people to have organized access to these items helps resist greed and theft. Taking an extra pair of gloves home is one thing, but taking half a box is another. Customers and employees will have a harder time overindulging if the your products are distributed little by little instead of sitting in a basket or pile on a counter. This also reduces the amount of times you have to restock an item in a give time frame. For example, if you've had paper towels sitting in a stock on bathroom counters, you might have to replace this stack daily. But having the paper towels come out of a dispenser means that people can only grab so many at a time because they're given out automatically or have to be pulled out one by one. This helps dampen how many people take when they use the restroom and you might only have to restock a few times each week instead of every single day.
Dispensers Reduce Mess
If you're tired of seeing gloves surrounding the box instead of either in the box or on people's hands, you'll understand why having a dispenser makes a lot of sense for gloves and other janitorial supplies. By keeping your products organized, you keep your space cleaner. Paper towels are one of the worst offenders. How many times have you seen paper towels in the sink, on the floor, in the toilet, or even beside the garbage can when there was simply a stack of paper towels on the counter?
