I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few weeks wondering what I could possibly mention here this issue, because it doesn’t feel like much has happened since this time last month. Millions more people have been vaccinated, but we’re a long way away from safety. The roadmap’s still ahead of us, but that end goal is months away and things could go wrong before then. It feels like we’re all just spinning our wheels, chuckling at a boat getting trapped in the Suez Canal.


Still, at least there’s plenty of cause for optimism, especially in the cleaning and hygiene industry. With many businesses preparing to come back to life as lockdowns ease,


cleaning operations will be returning and getting enhanced as the need to protect and prevent against infections becomes key to opening back up and staying open.


We’ve got a number of features in this issue on this subject as part of our Infection Control focus, with Liam from Essity explaining that while some companies are


coming up with ingenious ways to encourage good hand hygiene, they’re only part of the story. John from ABM UK explains why you should look back before moving forward, SafeGroup’s Steve Broughton discusses why product innovations must be


realistic following the pandemic or they could harm the industry, while we learn more about making air conditioning units safer post-COVID.


In our Cleaning Chemicals and Dosing feature, James from Denis Rawlins wants us


to ditch toxic and ineffective cleaning chemicals, while Matt from Hydro emphasises the importance of ensuring employees are properly trained to mix chemicals. Also in


this issue, we learn more about the latest and greatest Vacuums and Sweepers on the market, and discover who made the Top 10 in the Tomorrow’s Cleaning Awards 2021.


Thank you very much for reading, please stay safe and enjoy the issue!
