    TORONTO, Ont. - We have turned the corner on harsh winter weather, and spring is here.

    Spring is a time of renewal and refreshment as nature comes back to life, giving friends and family the opportunity to spend more time outdoors. As we trade icicles for flowers and snow angels for pool loungers, the warmer weather brings sights and smells that brighten up our day. Smells of lavender, vanilla, citrus and eucalyptus are just a few of the familiar and inviting scents gifted to us by spring.

    Even though scents of nature fill the springtime air, some people may have too much on their to-do lists to truly relax and enjoy the outdoors. Armor All is now bringing the natural scents of spring directly into your car. The new Essential Blends air fresheners are infused with essential oil blends of lemon bergamot, eucalyptus mint, pink grapefruit, citrus pomegranate and vanilla lavender, giving you the scents of spring wherever you go.

    "The inspiration behind Essential Blends came from looking at the average person's daily to-do list and thinking of how we could make those little in-between moments relaxing," says Megan Currie, Spectrum Brands director of marketing for Armor All. "A lot of people are in their cars for a good portion of their day, whether they are commuting to work or doing errands. We wanted to transform that daily routine into a comforting experience."

    Essential oils are known for their refreshing and restorative properties. Helping to relieve headaches, relax the mind or even energize the body, the benefits from essential oils are endless.

Customer retention is dependent on various factors and washroom cleanliness is one of the most important, Says Candice Raynsford, marketing manager, Cintas Canada.

“If your store is clean and inviting and you have a nice washroom that’s also clean, then typically your sales will be higher, particularly in the food service categories,” says Arcand.

Rago recommends using accessories with stainless steel finishes for durability and ease of cleaning and she thinks hand dryers, such as the XLERATOR product that can dry hands in eight seconds, are a better choice than paper towels.

 

The biggest change in commercial washrooms is in the design and efficiency of faucets and fixtures, says Ryan.
