What Alternatives Are There to Couch Roll?
A common alternative to Couch Rolls within the beauty industry tends to be the use of towels. It is argued heavily amongst professionals over which to use or in some cases, whether to use both. Although towels can provide some extra cushioning, they carry many negatives, firstly, they are not as hygienic as a Couch Roll. Couch Rolls are discarded at the end of the treatment, throwing away any germs and fluids lowering the risk of contamination and as a paper product it is recyclable. Towels must be rewashed after each use, this leads to excessive laundry requirements which not only impacts climate change but increases costs and takes up valuable time that could be spent with clients. By using a Couch Roll you will be reducing your impact on the environment as each sheet of paper from a Couch Roll can be recycled. Couch Rolls also take up less space in comparison to towels. For example, a box of 9 Couch Rolls at 40m takes up just 510mm x 325mm x 325mm, this is equivalent to 360m of paper. Overall the utility, cost effectiveness and environmental factors of Couch Rolls in healthcare are undeniable, they are a great hygiene solution. If you are a die-hard fan of using towels, having a box of Couch Rolls on hand can help out in emergencies too.
