The fleeting cleanliness of our toilets

Postby gaia » Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:31 pm

They are fairly disgusting, especially the Men's, and don't get cleaned as often as they should. According to the survey, it's one of our weak points. Maybe we should rethink the cleaning system. Any ideas?

this could be down to the lack of posters, does any one have the poster? if not maybe someone can make one

Is there a cleaning rota we could put in the loos? like a sheet with a date that specifies when the toilets were last cleaned, and signed by whoever did it... It's a good way to keep track of when the toilets were last thoroughly cleaned, and might be a good occasion for KM or NM to give them a quick wipe and a splash of Ecover at the end of the shift...
I think it should be part of the end of shift cleaning, I know it's horrible having to clean the toilets, but the in a place open all day and most of the night, the toilets should be well looked after ^^;;

That's a really good idea. Quickly cleaning the toilet bowls and emptying waste bins at the end of the night would help a lot!!

I didn't find any Ecover Toilet Cleaner in the cleaning cupboard the other day, just some nasty, chemical thing, and there was barely enough for all the loos... (men's stank of neglected stables btw... self explanatory) so if everybody agrees I wouldn't mind starting to apply this "quick cleaning and bin emptying" routine... takes 10 min during the evening, and any volunteer can do it... :roll:

usually we use ecover floor soap for the floors
disinfectant (Bio-D) for basins etc.
if you think it's necessary I will ask Bridget to order some toilet cleaner.
the bleach was leftover from some very nasty cleaning jobs I had over the winter....

Its kind of trick cleaning the toilets then going back to the kitchen, I see them in the morning sometimes and am about to go in and clean them then think, emm maybe not as i will ten have to the kitchen, obviously i can wash my hands but my clothes and everything, it just seems wrong, maybe i am being fussy.
The end of shift sounds good for this but i think i would encourage people not to come back into the kitchen after, maybe i am being a bit to fusy here

buy a couple of big boiler suits that kitchen staff can wear over their day clothes?

we don't have a septic tank, which is why whenever people flush stuff they shouldn't, we have to mop up sewage from the mains.

I also think it should be the end of kitchen shift (could be daytime shifts too, not to leave it all to the night shift). The trouble is after big events it's not just a case of the bins and basins - there's all sorts on the floor, the floors need mopped, toilets may need to be unblocked and the whole thing feels like a biohazard. Definitely not a pre-kitchen shift job IMHO.
