The SaniTimer attaches to any standard handwashing sink faucet to ensure staff rinse, lather, and wash their hands for the full 20 seconds recommended by the CDC to avoid the spread of bacteria. It automatically begins a 30-second countdown—the extra 10 seconds account for an individual’s preferred handwash prep—shown on an LED display as soon as the water is turned on. At the end of the cycle, the SaniTimer beeps to alert the handwashing user and resets itself to 30 seconds for the next user. The device works with pedal sinks as well as hands-free sinks.
