KOHLER® Cleanse

  • Share:

In response to the staggering statistic that 2.3 billion people live without the means to safely wash their hands at home, we have developed KOHLER Cleanse™. A hands-free handwashing faucet, KOHLER Cleanse empowers people to literally take protecting their health into their own hands.

According to the CDC, handwashing can prevent 1 in 3 diarrhea-related sicknesses and 1 in 5 respiratory infections, such as a cold or the flu. UNICEF reports that beyond the 3 in 10 people lacking handwashing access at home, an additional 670 million people have no access to handwashing at all. At Kohler, we’re committed to addressing UN Sustainable Development Goals where our innovation and expertise can make the greatest impact.
