This time last year, stocking up on cleaning products and supplies to prevent the spread of sickness sounded like a great idea… and it was! But as “panic purchasing” (i.e. buying in bulk out of fear) reached an all-time high in the cleaning industry, so did product costs and waste.
Across all industries, businesses in particular bought an abundance of products this past year for several reasons:
- To prevent or kill viruses like COVID-19 and the flu
- To ensure the protection of their customers, employees, loved ones, and community
- Out of fear the products would become scarce in the future
Whatever their reasons for bulk ordering, cleaning product sales saw a dramatic spike in 2020. In fact, sales were up 400% in aerosol disinfectants alone, according to recent research. Fast forward one year and you’ve got a lot of businesses with a lot of excess product sitting on their shelves.
If your facility has a surplus of product from the past year and you’re looking to cut down on resources (without compromising effectiveness), here’s what you can do now to save time and money moving forward…
Consolidate Your Facility’s Resources
We can’t stress this enough… consolidation is an easy way to save on resources. From time and product cost-savings to reductions in product and packaging waste, consolidation is a great way to simplify your internal processes and maximize your facility’s budget.
So, where do you start? If you’re looking to consolidate your expenses, you can start with the products in your cleaning and training routines. In fact, with the right multi-purpose cleaning solution, you can reduce the number of SKUs you carry, streamline your inventory management processes, and improve overall efficiency—all without compromising on effectiveness.
