Hand washing is a life skill that we've hopefully all found ourselves practising a lot more since the unwelcome arrival of COVID-19.

However a new product from sanitary furnishings company Franke could allow us to skip the formerly all-important soap and hand sanitiser stages of the ritual.

New hand hygiene sink Medi-flo infuses water with ozone, which is "one of the world’s most powerful disinfectants," says Franke.

The science behind the product is that ozone is an extremely effective oxidizer; more than twice as effective as bleach and kills bacteria 3,000 times faster. It’s non-toxic and eco-friendly too.

Ideal for healthcare environments, the Medi-flo makes hand-washing more effective. Blue LED illuminates the water stream while infra-red controls minimise contact.

Popular in the States and Canada, the sink combats the issue of ozonated water not being effective if bottled or stored by infusesing water with trace amounts of ozone, on demand, from a laminar ozone chamber.

It's now available in the Middle East, exclusively through Franke.
