It's gross, but true-- not everyone washes their hands after using the toilet. Even though we know restrooms are swarming with bacteria, sometimes we may not feel the need to wash up.

Safeguard is helping to change this prevailing issue by launching a soap dispensing device in the Philippines. It's called the Safeguard Germ Alarm. It's being installed in restrooms at shopping malls, fast food restaurants and schools to help raise awareness and implement better restroom hygiene to prevent the spread of disease-causing germs.

The bright red dispensers act a visual warning sign, reminding people the importance of hand-washing. If the caution-raising color doesn't grab people's attention, the alarm-laced dispenser boldly has the Safeguard logo and "Germ Alarm" upfront, which tells people exactly what the device is about. Instructions for proper hand-washing etiquette is also printed right beside the device.

And while it may rattle the eardrums a bit, the best part about the Safeguard Germ Alarm is that it really is an alarm. As soon as someone steps out of their cubicle, the shrill-sounding siren is triggered, and can only be disarmed when the dispenser button is pressed.

With it's bright colorway and screeching siren, the Safeguard Germ Alarm is a great way to engage with people and spur them to take better precaution with restroom hygiene.
