NIM - Hygienic Hardware

This notice from Richelieu Hardware arrived in my inbox this week.  In the name of healthier homes and offices, they've taken some of their more popular pieces of hardware and treated them with an anti-bacterial finish.  Purported benefits include:

  • Reduce risks and costs associated to HAIs (Healthcare Associated Infections).
  • Improve hygiene at home, in workplace or in any traffic area by minimizing bacteria and risks of cross contamination.
  • Lessen the use of biological agents to which bacteria's resistance can be developed.

Colour me sceptical and firmly in the "wash your hands with soap and water" camp.  I'm going to lump this one in with Silestone's Microban treatment.
