The Best Practice For Menstrual Hygiene Disposal
The MaskIT Disposal System
Why Choose MaskIT?
While our understanding of bloodborne pathogens has improved significantly in the last 100 years, the way facilities handle menstrual waste has remained unchanged leaving a major hole in the chain of infection control and countless people exposed to bloodborne pathogens like Hepatitis B, C, and MRSA.
MaskIT's patented design provides glove-like protection during the removal of a menstrual item, self contains, and then seals the item within. This reduces potential exposure risks at all the touchpoints in a restroom and provides extra protection for custodial staff.
Our design is the safest method of disposal and is considered by many to be the best practice for menstrual waste management.
Flushed menstrual items will inevitably lead to plumbing problems in any facility. If your facility has older plumbing or happens to be on a septic system, these problems can become even more complicated and very costly. MaskIT can help prevent plumbing problems in your facility by addressing the most common reasons menstrual items are flushed; messy or overfilled receptacles and a general lack of a sanitary option for their disposal.
The MaskIT solution is effective because it is intentional. All menstrual waste is sealed within the MaskIT pouch before it is placed into a receptacle, which prevents visible contamination. MaskIT is more compact than toilet paper and as a result, receptacles do not fill as quickly. When clean receptacles are provided, they are more likely to be used. Providing MaskIT has proven to reduce flushing behavior.
MaskIT addresses one of the biggest pain points in public restrooms, menstrual receptacles. With MaskIT, receptacles stay clean inside and out creating a safer, more sanitary environment for everyone. In addition to making a restroom look cleaner, our solution helps restrooms feel cleaner as well because our plant-based biofilm has scientific properties that block odor molecules.
Keeping your menstrual receptacles clean goes a long way towards setting your restrooms standard of cleanliness. When people feel a facility has provided them a clean restroom environment they are more inclined to keep the restroom clean. MaskIT proactively addresses all of these problems.
MaskIT also addresses a major pain point for custodial staff; servicing menstrual receptacles. Oftentimes, wax paper bags hurt the overall cleanliness of a restroom and force custodial staff to handle menstrual waste not properly contained in bags. With wax paper bags, receptacles are easily contaminated, can overflow, and are difficult to keep clean. This put a disproportionate amount of stress on the custodial staff.
