<![CDATA[Are you using the right colours? The importance of Infection Control & COSHH]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/InfectionControlAndCOSHH/ When using cleaning materials such as buckets, Mops, brushes & brooms or any other cleaning apparatuses it is important to use colour coding in making sure you use the right equipment for the right area or surface.

How to colour code:

With the simple four colour system you are able to separate all areas in your facilities with ease to handle categories.


  • RED: Sanitary appliances & Washroom Floors
  • BLUE: General lower risk areas (excluding food areas)
  • GREEN: General food & Bar use
  • YELLOW: Clinical, Washbasins & other Washroom Surfaces

With separate coloured equipment you are able to see clearly which area it should be used. This helps to recognise quickly if you are misusing your cleaning products and equipment in the wrong designated areas. With this simple code even non cleaning staff will be able to spot when equipment is not being used correctly.

One most important reason in separating equipment by using colour is to stop cross contamination across different surfaces. For example using a cleaning wipe which you use in the sanitary Appliances (RED) should never be used in Food and bar use (GREEN).  This notion is clear but the spread of disease and virus is incredibly high when cleaning products going from surface to surface. 

Below our top five tips for that will help keep your infection control & COSHH to a high standard.

Prevent CROSS CONTAMINATION - follow the golden rules:


  1. Work from the cleanest area towards the dirtiest area
  2. Always use two colours within washroom areas
  3. Keep colour coding simple
  4. Train staff and be aware of colour blindness
  5. Monitor the system and re-train where necessary

We hope this Blog entry has helped you in colour coding if you require any more information please visit the link below:

<![CDATA[What Do Plastic Recycling Symbols Mean?]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/Plastic-Recycling-Symbols/ What Are the Seven Main Plastics?

The seven main types of plastic resins are polyethylene terephthalate (PETE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polypropylene (PP), and polystyrene (PS). The seventh category is designated as “other,” which can include polycarbonate resins, acrylic, polyactic fibers, nylon, and fiberglass, just to name a few.

Where Did Plastic Recycling Symbols and Numbers Come From?

To determine which type of plastic a container is made of, you should look for its Resin Identification Code (RIC), which is the number (between 1 and 7) within the triangular recycling symbol located on each plastic product. This plastic recycling code system was introduced by the Plastics Industry Trade Association (SPI) in 1988 to assist communities that were implementing recycling programs.

These recycling numbers will also help you determine if that type of plastic will be accepted by your local recycling programs. If you’re interested in learning more about recycling plastic, check out the infographic below.

<![CDATA[What is chlorine?]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/what-is-chlorine/ Scientists and industry professionals would go into detailed descriptions of the element’s chemical construction, such as its periodic symbol Cl and atomic number 17 and its uses across a huge number of industries. The average homeowner and consumer would mention its use in cleaning agents such as bleach and come across it at their local swimming pool and its most common compound, sodium chloride, at the dinner table.

The scientific or industrial answer to ‘what is chlorine?’ involves describing why chlorine, along with other elements in the halogen group such as bromine and iodine, can be used to disinfect water and surfaces so that they can be safely used by humans. Because chlorine is extremely reactive with a variety of other substances, it can be used to bond with harmful pathogens, such as viruses, parasites and fungi, to render them harmless to humans who come in contact with them. However, for use in cleaning agents and in the swimming pool chlorine must be used with caution, as its high reactivity can also cause it to harm the human body in a variety of ways.

For owners of home pools who need to disinfect their water and ensure it stays clean, the question of ‘what is chlorine?’ becomes simple. Buckets of the granulated chemical, such as hth chlorine, are ideal for sanitising an entire pool of water. Available in several distinct varieties, and in bucket sizes of either 1kg or 25kg, stabilised chlorine granules act by releasing chlorine throughout the body of water so that it may bond with the pathogens there, neutralising their harmfulness to humans.

Chlorine tablets that test for levels of the chemical in water are key to ensuring there isn’t too much, which would be harmful to swimmers, or too little, which would not effectively neutralise germs and parasites.

<![CDATA[Restaurant Washroom Hygiene]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/restaurant-washroom-hygiene/ How to Keep Your Restaurant Washroom Clean and Healthy

The restaurant Washroom may be one of the last places you think about with all you have to consider to keep a restaurant in operation. But perhaps, it should be one of the first. Sanitation in the Washroom is a major concern for many reasons. It affects your image, your patron’s health and, believe it or not, your bottom line. You will be happy to hear making a simple change in Washroom fixtures can significantly reduce costs—while ensuring the Washroom is kept clean and sanitary for both customers and employees.

Eliminating paper towels in favor of today’s generation of high-speed hand dryers is a change that pays dividends in many ways. In the past, many people preferred paper towels to hand dryers because they found it quicker to use paper and—using plenty of paper towels—they could be sure their hands were thoroughly dry. Yet, paper has become increasingly expensive and too often people use more than they need to in public Washrooms—2.5 paper towel sheets every time they dry their hands! At a cost of at least 2 cents per sheet your restaurant can be paying as much as 5 cents per person to dry their hands. If you have a busy restaurant, multiply that number by 5 cents each. It’s an expense that can add up to thousands of dollars per year.  Then, of course, there is the shelf space required for stocking the paper towel supply coupled with the time it takes employees to restock the dispensers and clean up and dispose of the clutter paper towels leave behind, incurring additional cost when it comes to keeping that part of your business in shape.

One of the best ways to control the costs associated with Washroom sanitation and maintenance is to ensure the Washroom provides little opportunity for litter and contamination that drive up maintenance expenses. This new generation of hand dryers are worth the attention they are getting for eliminating these issues. They dry hands in only 10 to 12 seconds. That is up to three times faster than traditional hand dryers are—and they use as much as 80 percent less energy in the process. Heat levels are adjustable, and operate more quietly than traditional models. Additionally, they come equipped with HEPA filtration systems to reduce airborne contaminates and improve hygiene quality.

And there is more. Replacing paper towels with hand dryers also serves the environment in several ways:
•Energy-efficient hand dryers use as much as 88 percent less energy than traditional models and they dry hands faster.
•High-speed hand dryers can turn on or off heat; further reducing the hand dryer’s energy consumption.
•Paper towels can’t be recycled, so disposing of them creates millions of cubic feet of waste in landfills.
•Hand dryers that are GreenSpec approved will help those constructing or renovating new facilities qualify for LEED certification.

Washroom fixtures may seem like a minor consideration compared to the complexity of all your other restaurant requirements, yet making smart choices can go a long way to reducing maintenance and energy costs—all why promoting a sanitary environment in your public Washroom. Studies have shown automatic hand dryers can save businesses up to 99 percent in operation costs as compared to paper towels. Today’s high-speed automatic hand dryers are designed, engineered and manufactured to help realize long-term economic and environmental savings. If you are still using paper towels, isn’t it time you checked out what a simple change in your Washroom can do to enhance the image and reduce the cost of your restaurant’s Washroom?

<![CDATA[The Low Down On Latex Gloves]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/low-down-on-latex-gloves/ Latex gloves help to maintain a safe and hygienic environment. In the cleaning and maintenance industry, latex gloves have long been used to provide workers with protection.

Latex is a very clean and flexible material that is impervious to liquids, allowing impressive dexterity for its user without reducing touch sensitivity. Latex has an effective resistance to punctures, tears and hazardous chemicals often used in cleaning such as bleach and detergents.

History of latex gloves

Ansell manufactured the first ever latex gloves in 1964 specifically for use in medical procedures and examinations to prevent contamination between medical staff and patients. Today however, latex gloves are used as a means to promote hygiene and reduce contamination in a variety of industries, including cleaning, food service, tattoo parlours and a variety of other fields.


One of the most specific characteristics of latex gloves is the texture. Most latex gloves are textured to help prevent slippage when dealing with moist or wet objects. The textured part of the latex gloves can either be on the fingertips or throughout the entire glove. 


Latex gloves used to only be available in the traditional white translucent finish. Today latex gloves are available in nearly every colour of the rainbow as well as black and transparent. The colour of the latex glove is entirely aesthetic and has absolutely nothing to do with the material composition or quality/safety level.


Latex gloves come in many different thicknesses. The thickness of the gloves is measured in mm. Many people lay a large amount of importance on the thickness of the latex glove in relation to the overall quality, safety, durability and functionality. In most cases the thickness of the latex glove differs throughout the glove. Latex gloves are generally reinforced by way of thicker layers of latex positioned on the palms and fingers for added protection. 

Powder and powder-free latex gloves

In terms of quality, dexterity and durability powder and powder-free latex gloves are extremely similar. There are two main differences between powder and powder-free latex gloves – cost and convenience. Powder free gloves are more expensive than powdered ones due to the additional steps that need to be taken in making them. Most people prefer powder- free latex gloves, and today, the majority of latex gloves produced are powder-free.

Alternatives to latex

Because of the increasing amount of latex allergies in the general population, disposable gloves can be made from non-latex materials such as nitrile, vinyl (the most common) or neoprene.

<![CDATA[Electric Hand Dryers vs Paper Towels]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/electric-hand-dryers-v-paper-towels/ Within this piece of writing I will present an objective article with the aim of evaluating which method of hand drying is most suitable in modern day life. In making such a comparison one must start by first considering the three main factors which will shape the conclusion: the environmental cost, cleanliness and economic cost. Studies are being carried out constantly in order to finally answer these questions - both the paper towel and hand dryer markets attempt to defend their products aggressively.


First, let us consider paper towels affect on the environment. In the manufacturing process, trees are destroyed and wood must be transported to factories where it is then made into the paper towels we see in restrooms. However, we can probably ignore possible deforestation impacts as usually wood comes from sustainable commercial forests. The environmental cost of such a process is high as fossil fuels are burnt in order to supply the electrical energy needed for both the manufacturing process and packaging and also the cost of transport from the factory to the purchaser. Furthermore paper towels will require constant replenishment throughout their use.

When considering the overall environmental cost we must also take into account what happens to a paper towel once used. Although it is not possible to include all accounts of paper towel disposal in this article, it is safe to say the vast majority of hand towels are not recycled. Paper towels are made of organic material so when sent to landfill harmful greenhouse gases such as methane are released in the decomposition of this material. This is a massive problem in the USA as 2% of total landfill is made up of paper towels. As well as this, due to the way in which these paper towels are designed, they do not break down when wet in the mulching process and instead retain their original structure. Therefore a bigger problem is posed by paper towel disposal when considering their environmental sustainability. One can look to other means of disposal such as compost , however, this is not a viable solution as paper towels are used on a large scale. So although difficult to take into account all environmental factors concerned with paper towel usage one can conclude that paper towels certainly do leave a significant carbon footprint.

Next the environmental impact of hand dryers must be considered. A standard hand dryer will use around 1.5Kw (per hour of use) and is said (by Slate magazine) to typically last for around 10 years. Here it is apparent that some electricity is used in supplying a Hand dryer once it is installed, however, compared to the paper towel , CO2 emissions are much less in terms of transporting the product as, once installed, nothing is required in terms of upkeep making it more environmentally sustainable in this aspect. Studies have shown that a hand dryer is nearly three times more eco friendly, producing nearly a third of the CO2 that paper towels create. In addition there is absolutely no rubbish disposal associated with the usage of the electric hand dryer, saving landfill space and reducing amounts of harmful greenhouses gases emitted into the atmosphere. It has also been found that during the productive life span of the average hand dryer, around 24 less trees are cut down than would be were paper towels being used in the place of this one hand dryer. However some negative aspects of electric hand drying must also be considered.

One such factor is that a hand dryer is more complex than a carbon based paper towel as more materials go into producing such a machine. This means that once disposed of a hand dryer will not degrade for thousands of years. The fact has been highlighted by several paper towel manufacturers that in the manufacturing and industrial sector the hand dryer may actually decrease the company’s overall productivity. This is due to the fact that only one person can use a hand dryer at any one time whereas paper towels can be taken by several people. Similarly this can be counter argued as hand dryers with their rapidly increasing efficiency due to advances in technology can now dry hands in under 15 seconds where a paper towel may take longer than this. Overall there is a clear advantage to use of hand dryers in terms of environmental sustainability.


Studies, such as that done by Westminster University, have found drying hands using hand dryers does in fact increase the amount of germs on the individual’s hands after using an electric hand dryer when paper towels appear not to affect the amount of bacteria present before or after. However , the way in which such studies are carried out must be questioned before agreeing with statements from The Daily Telegraph such as “is so unhygienic that it might be better to not wash at all”. In further investigating studies carried out which led to such extreme conclusions it appears that holding your hand under a hand dryer still, for the allocated amount of time is key in reducing germs on ones hands which is not taken into account by this study. Moreover, the fact that many bacteria are completely harmless has also not been taken into account; this proves these studies are at best inconclusive and at worst, highly misleading and incorrect. Finally, the sample sizes used are small and larger studies must be conducted before any kind of accurate conclusion can be drawn.

Economic cost.

Cleary the initial cost of a hand dryer surpasses that of its competitor the hand towel. It is also true that in the case of Handy Dryers units, almost all units will pay for themselves in under a year*. Without factoring in the cost of rubbish bags and maintenance, an average size company will spend around £2,000 a year. By comparison, the initial cost of an electric hand dryer and an annual operating cost of around £60 is a much smaller price to pay.
In conclusion these three factors are all interdependent when determining which method of hand drying is most appropriate for your individual situation. It is better though, to encourage the development of hand dryers by investing in them rather than using paper towels for the sake of short term eco-friendliness. This is because constant technological advances are key in providing long term environmental sustainability as efficiency is constantly increasing.

*Assuming usage over 100 times per day when moving from paper towels.

<![CDATA[Top 10 Window Cleaning Tips]]> https://www.allianceuk.com/blognew/Window-Cleaning-10tips/ Every business knows that clean windows are an important part of business presentation. Especially for retail stores where window shoppers might be drawn in by bright and bold displays behind sparkly clean windows. Similarly, people thinking about having lunch in a restaurant or café might be put off by unclean windows – wondering about the cleanliness of the establishment as a whole.

These following tips are designed to help you get the best results from your window cleaning exploits:

1.Avoid Cleaning in Direct Sunlight – washing, cleaning and polishing windows on a sunny day might seem like a sensible plan because you’ll be able to see what you’re doing more easily, but direct sunlight leads to a quick drying effect which can result in unsightly and stubborn water marks that can be pain to remove and probably make your windows appear dirtier than they were when you first started.

2.The Right Tools – professional window cleaners get the best results because they use the right tools. Spending an extra bit of money on squeegees, applicators, microfiber finishing cloths and other tools not only ensure the best possible finish but also cut down the time it takes to clean your windows in the first place.

3.Avoid Sponges – along with using the right tools, it’s important to avoid using the wrong ones. A sponge is bad idea for cleaning windows. They can easily catch dirt, dust and debris on their surface and scrape it across the glass. The results of this might not appear instantly, but over time these sort of fine scratches might result in damage and marring of the glass and an overall dulling that make windows unappealing. With deeper fabrics and tiny microfibers, microfiber cloths are a preferable tool and the best implement for getting the best clean and shine without risking damage to the surface of the glass.

4.Use Chemicals Sparingly – it’s important to put good glass cleaners to use to get the best results, but we’d recommend using all chemicals sparingly. Using too much and you’ll find yourself smearing the glass and wasting money on refills.

5.Regular Cleaning and Polishing – clean and polish your windows regularly and you’ll find they keep cleaner for longer. It will also make your business seem more appealing if it’s clean, shining and well presented.

6.Fresh Water – regularly freshen your water while you’re cleaning to ensure you aren’t washing windows with dirty water from previous windows. It might seem like a chore, but you’ll be surprised at the difference it makes!

7.Sideways Squeegee – using your squeegee sideways forces water to fall vertically down the pane at one point, rather than spilling over the edges of the squeegee. This can make a difference.

8.Watch the Edges – one area people tend to fall down on when cleaning windows is the edges. As you wipe or use your squeegee you’ll find water builds up at the edges, untreated this can dry and lead to water marks and problem areas.

9.Watch Your Step – washing windows and using a bucket can be a dangerous undertaking if you’re not looking where you’re going while you work. An upended bucket can cause all end of havoc when doing the inside of the premises. This problem can be solved by bucket on a belt.

10.Speed or Quality? – Most professional window cleaners’ use an 18″ squeegee for speed, but for residential properties or small businesses a smaller tool might be just as useful.
