Wholesale Pallet Deals, Why they will Save You Money

Wholesale pallet deals at Toiletrolls.com, are here to offer our customers the best deal we can. Selling Cleaning and Janitorial product is not as easy as it once was. With so much competition in our Away from Home market we have had to condense our range of consumables to accomodate our customers needs. In doing so we can now concentrate on offering bespoke orders to suit customers needs. We’ll break down a few reason why we think you should buy your Pallet deals from us.

1, Verbal Support when placing ordering your Pallets

It’s easy for us to know what constitutes a full pallet of toilet rolls as all our quantities are listed. Things get a little more difficult when you start mixed your pallets. If you wanted a pallet of Desna Rose 3ply Toilet rolls for instance but needed 10 cases of Paper hand towels, we would have to reduce the Desna Rose. It’s much easier to speak with our sales team to discuss your pallet orders and let us guide you. Call our sales team on 0151 342 2111

2, Bulk buying pallet and why it saves you money

Our Wholesale Pallet Deals will save money in comparison to buying single case options. You’ll find many pallet deals throughout our site but to make it your shopping experience easier we have added a new Pallet Deals category. We’re adding all the time and also plan to add a few mixed pallet deals. Toilet rolls with centrefeed and Paper Hand Towels with Toilet Rolls are very popular options.

3, Stocking all the Janitorial Products you need

We’ve been in the Cleaning industry for over 25 years with lots of experience in what our customer need. We know we can’t please everyone as there are so many variants of the same product to choose from. Our condensed, comprehensive range should be enough to full your daily cleaning and hygiene needs. With all manner of paper products to choose from. We have a range of paper hand towels to fit any dispenser in the UK market, C Fold, Z Fold, V Fold, I Fold etc.

4, Delivering your Wholesale Pallet Deals Free

Buying pallets of Paper Consumables has never been so easy. We have a proven track record when it come to sending your goods on time. Our standard lead time is 3 working days for UK Mainland, sometimes a little longer for hard to reach areas. All our pallet deals include Free Carriage. Of course we have to pay a courier but we are able to build the costs into the pallet prices. So what were trying to say is that there are no hidden costs for buying our wholesale pallet deals. We use a well respected haulier with many years experience with the added bonus that each pallet can be tracked.

Most drop shippers do have an online presence as it does make your the process easy. Ideally, for this modern world you do need a website.

If you get some traction and your business starts to grow then maybe invest in a company with a proven record. We use Simba Digital.

winter chills Facial Tissues at Toiletrolls.com

Getting the Office Ready for the Winter Chills

Getting ready for winter chills in the workplace is very important for both management and employees. Nobody business owner wants ther staff to call in sick because of caught and colds. There are a few things you can do around the workplace to help keep the chills at bay.

1, Get the heating sorted!

Check out the radiators and heaters and make sure they are working well. Turning on old heaters can be risky, especially if they have been in storage. Dust heaters can also be smelly as the dust burns off. Its always a good idea to have them checked out by a qualified electrician to be safe.

2, Have a generous supply of hot Beverages

Have a good supply of hot drinks available. Tea and Coffee are great for warming up the cockles. If your feeling generous why not splash out on some Hot Chocolate for your employees?

3, Keep out the Drafts

Keep the door closed! It’s beneficial to make sure drafts don’t occur. When an outside door is opened into a warm room it only takes seconds for the room to become cold again. Constantly being hot then cold is never a good thing for anyone and attracts caughs and colds. You can find more handy tips to keep out online.

4, Look after your Staff

Be sympathetic with staff. To help reduce the spread of coughs and colds it may be worth sometimes sending staff home early. This enables them to get a good nights sleep to recharge their batteries. If you keep staff in work they may be getting worse and also spreading unwanted germs to the healthier staff. This will only lead to more staff off work and added stress for the rest of your employees.

6, Stop the Spread of Germs

It’s good to have a supply of Facial Tissues on hand to combat the risk of spreading germs from sneezing during the winter chills. Did you know Kleenex rebranded their ‘Mansize’ tissues to Kleenex Extra Large in 2018? There are a wide range of tissues available form Mansize, Cubed and Hotel sized tissues. Hand sanitising is important throughout the year but especially when it’s winter. It’s good to have a hand wash and Hand Sanitiser station in the workplace, just like you see in hospitals. Keep the office clean and tidy. Germs spread easy enough so you should always do your bit to help with a clean workplace. We have a range of Hard Surface cleaners and Sanitisers from Evans Vanodine. Perfect for any office and workplace.

We hope we’ve given you enough tips and tricks to help with a healthier and cold free workplace.

At Toiletrolls.com we pride ourselves in being one of the most competitive janitorial, cleaning and hygiene suppliers online.

There are so many Cheap Toilet Rolls available in the UK, but who is the cheapest? How can a company state that they are the cheapest? We see all too often, supermarkets, discount stores and online retailers stating that they are the cheapest. Fair enough, we all have a 'Cheap' case of toilet rolls, but just beacause the case or pack is cheap it doesnt necessarily mean they are the best value. For instance, we have a case of Value 200 sheet toilet rolls listed at £5.45+ vat, £6.54 including vat which is 18p per roll. So you would think thats a great deal, but, lets look at an alternative roll with 320 sheets per roll. Our Desna Eco 320 Sheet is listed at £7.95+ vat, £9.54 including vat which works out at 26.5p per roll. Sound a lot more expensive than our 200 sheet roll doesn't it? Lets now work out the sheet price. Each sheet costs 0.0008281 and with our 200 sheet the sheeet cost is at 0.0009p per roll. Based on 100 sheets the 200 sheet roll is 009p and the 320 sheet is at 0.08281. So, to conclude, our 320 sheet toilet rolls are cheaper!! We looked at Tesco Toilet Rolls For Comparison We thought we had too many options when it came to toilet roll variants! Tesco have a whopping range to choose from including all the brands, Andrex, Cushelle, own brand Luxury Soft. It wasn't easy to compare like for like with our above cheap toilet rolls as Tesco offer many 24, 16, 4 and 9 pack options. Once you figure out the cases size you want you then need to choose the ply, 2 or 3ply. You can then look at the costs but looking closely you will see some prices are quoted based on 100 sheets. One example with their own brand was a 24 pack, Tesco Luxury Soft 2ply Toilet rolls. A great quality product product that sells very well. This is listed at 15p per 100 sheets, so double it and you get 30p per 200 sheets, see where we're going here? Now comparing quality of Tesco brand and our Value product, honestly, Tesco's is much better. Pure tissue against our Value recycled rolls, grammage, width. It's so difficult to compare and even braver to say you're the cheapest. Is it Cheaper To Buy Toilet Rolls in Bulk Bulk buying or buying pallet loads of Toilet Rolls are by far cheaper than buying individual cases of simgle 4 packs. The main reason for this is because of transport costs. Wholesale companies with storage facilities can benefit from buying bulk if they have the space to store goods. For the best deals online we offer great savings for bulk buyers. You can save over 30% on a range of Toilet Rolls. Anyone can purchase pallet deals but please be aware, you need to be able to store them.

Cheap Toilet Rolls, are Supermarkets Cheaper?

There are so many Cheap Toilet Rolls available in the UK, but who is the cheapest? How can a company state that they are the cheapest?

Based on 100 sheets the 200 sheet roll is 009p and the 320 sheet is at 0.08281. So, to conclude, our 320 sheet toilet rolls are cheaper!!

We looked at Tesco Toilet Rolls For Comparison

We thought we had too many options when it came to toilet roll variants! Tesco have a whopping range to choose from including all the brands, Andrex, Cushelle, own brand Luxury Soft. It wasn’t easy to compare like for Tesco luxury soft toilet rollslike with our above cheap toilet rolls as Tesco offer many 24, 16, 4 and 9 pack options.

This is listed at 15p per 100 sheets, so double it and you get 30p per 200 sheets, see where we’re going here? Now comparing quality of Tesco brand and our Value product, honestly, Tesco’s is much better. Pure tissue against our Value recycled rolls, grammage, width. It’s so difficult to compare and even braver to say you’re the cheapest.

Is it Cheaper To Buy Toilet Rolls in Bulk

Bulk buying or buying pallet loads of Toilet Rolls are by far cheaper than buying individual cases of single 4 packs. The main reason for this is because of transport costs. Wholesale companies with storage facilities can benefit from buying bulk if they have the space to store goods. For the best deals online we offer great savings for bulk buyers. You can save over 30% on a range of Toilet Rolls. Anyone can purchase pallet deals but please be aware, you need to be able to store them. Check out our Pallet Deals Here.

To conclude, there are many variants to look out for when purchasing toilet rolls. Tissue Grade, Ply, strength, Quality, price per sheet, price per roll, how many rolls per case. Buying in Bulk. Ultimately, everyone has their preferred Looroll and will almost always go for a brand they recognise.

 

Hand Hygiene is so Important

Reasons Why Hand Hygiene is so Important

We all want to work in a clean and hygienic environment when in work. It’s only natural to want to feel at home and comfortable during your working hours. When it comes to a clean workplace there are many procedures and products available to assist.

Hand Soaps and Sanitisers

We have many options when it comes to hand soaps including Soap bars, Pump soaps and wall mounted Soap Dispenser Systems. We offer traditional Buttermilk soaps that are quite old fashioned these days but still quite popular. When it comes to workplace soap systems we have an even split between pump soaps and wall mounted systems. It’s all down to customer preferrence, budgets and the cost in use. If you are on a tight budget and like to keep an eye on your pennies you need to take a look at our Foam soap dispenser systems. We have a few options including North Shore Soap Systems with 3 colour options. Each refill is a cartridge that works out at approximately 0.04p per dose. An amazing price when you work out a Pump soap costs approximately 2.5p per dose. Of course, it all dependes on the pump soap and dispenser but it’s definately something to keep an eye on.

Disposable Gloves for your Workplace

Disposable gloves are becoming more popular in all industries and used mostly in our Healthcare sector. Whether it be for food preperation, garage workshops, changing a babies nappy or operating in surgery, disposable gloves are necessary. Latex free gloves are idea if you have latex allergies. With this in mind, we offer Vinyl Disposable Gloves in either Blue for food areas or clear for general workplace use. For more medical use for Doctors or Dentists we offer Nitrile Dispsable gloves in a range of sizes and are Medical grade.

Evans Vanodine Handcare Solutions

Finally, our Evans Vanodine range has been tried and tested. Evans offer amazing support when it comes to hand hygiene and has a great video on the how to’s when it comes to washing your hands. Unperfumed Bactericidal Soap in your Kitchen is so important when it comes to preparing food. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Cleaning, Why We Should Clean Daily

Cleaning, Why We Should Clean Daily

For most, its pretty obvious why we should all be working in a clean environment, whether it be in the workplace or at home. Firstly, it is a legal requirement that every place of work must uphold to a certain degree of hygiene and companies that to not consistantly uphold cleaning levels could find themselves in a pickle. First impressions in the workplace say a lot. For new clients or even new staff, a dusty, dirty looking office is not appealing, therefore that perfect canditate may refuse to work there. Furthermore, new clients who you may wish to do business with may think differently about future relations with you.

Hiring a Contract Cleaner

Many offices don’t have the time to maintain a large office are so they may call on Contract Cleaning Companies like Dublcheck. Dublcheck have a nationwide database of Franchisee’s that have all been vetted and trained. Contract cleaners have offerered their services for many years and here are many to choose from. We would always recommend a trusted, proven company with many cleaners. The only negative we have found with contract cleaners is staffing issues. Larger companies have plently of staff on hand if one doesn’t show for work. With smaller companies, this can be a problem.

Employing Your Own Cleaners

This is a preferred option for many companies as they have a little more control over employees. Stock holding of cleaning products is also a bonus as companies can scout out all the best deals for Cleaning Supplies. Consumables including Paper Products, Toilet Rolls and Paper Hand Towels can be quite expensive over a year so companies do need to shop for the best online deals. Its hard to find out prices of consumables when you pay a set monthly fee to contract cleaner.

Workplace Cleaning Products

At Toiletrolls.com we have a huge range of cleaning products for your workplace. General everyday housekeeping cleaners and furniture polish are a must if your cleaning yourself. We offer a complete range of Evans Vanodine Cleaning products for every cleaning task. With our Evans range we also offer Environmentally Preferred products which are WEIR accredited

Cleaning products in Your Home

Many people seem to have the opinion that only branded cleaning products work. Supermarkets and TV do a fab job at getting products recognised as the best and only options to best suit cleaning jobs. Our main Chemical Manufacturer, Evans Vanodine have been establised for 100 years and offer amazing product that work. They also offer Safety Data Sheets and information sheets on how to use them. Furthermore, we also offer a Training Support DVD that offers indepth information on how to use our cleaning products. There’s a great article you can also read at Housewife How Too’s on 5 Things You Should Clean Daily in Just 10 Minutes. It makes for a great read and offer some grreat advice!

To conclude, there’s no excuse for having a dirty workplace or home. Keeping up to date with in your daily cleaning routine means you can spend more time being productive. There’s a few handy cleaning tips and hacks over at Astonish Cleaning Products and you can also find a few Astonish Products at toiletrolls.com

Colour Coding, Our Guide

guide to colour coding

Colour coding cleaning in our industry is the process of allocating specific colours. 4 Colours for Certain cleaning tasks and cleaning equipment in different areas of a workplace or area. This helps to reduce the spread of germs across areas and assists in hygiene throughout a business or home.

Using a single mop to clean every floor in a toilet, for example, can spread bacteria into other areas. At least if you keep a single mop head in the washroom, and contamination occurs, unwanted germs won’t spread.

Kitchen and food preparation areas should also have a designated colour. Applying a colour coded system to segregate sensitive areas from one-another is perfect. The most efficient and effective way of reducing the risk of cross contamination is to use colour coding.

Developed by the BICSc is a universal colour code chart which is recommended for use within the cleaning industry.

Colour Coding, The 4 Colours

Red – Sanitary Appliances & Washroom Floors

Red has been assigned to areas such as urinals, toilets and washroom floors. This is because these areas are universally regarded to have a high-risk of bacterial contamination. By using only red-coded cleaning products such as Red All purpose cloths, Red Mop Heads, buckets and gloves to clean them, the risk of spreading bacteria outside of these areas is minimised.

Yellow – Clinical & Healthcare

Yellow is assigned to clinical and sensive environments however yellow is often used outside of the care industry as a colour assigned to the cleaning of all other washroom surfaces, including sinks, mirrors, cubicles, tiled walls, glass and metal. Having two different colour codes for wash rooms ensures that the same cleaning products are not used on toilet seats and urinals as on sinks and taps, and helps to further contain the spread of infection. We have Yellow All purpose cloths for this specific task.

Green – General Food and Bar Use

Green has been assigned to food and drink preparation areas, including kitchens and bar areas. Food preparation areas pose a high risk of cross-contamination particularly from uncooked meat and fish, therefore it’s crucial to regulate the use of cleaning products in these areas.

Blue – General Lower Risk Areas (Excluding Food Areas)

Blue has been coded for low-risk areas, such as offices and hallways, and also for general dusting and polishing. As there is usually a lower degree of bacterial contamination in these areas compared to washrooms and food preparation areas, blue coded cleaning products can be used across a broader range of surfaces. The ideal cloth for General lower risk areas would be our Blue All Purpose Cloth in a box for easy transport.

To conclude, we know many nof you do it your way, and thats fine. All’s we ask is that if you do clean multiple areas of your business or home, you don’t mix up the colours.
Big Thanks to Ramon Hygiene for the above Colour Coded references.
