Lavaris / Hands washing


What does hand cleaning in public places mean to us
today and what does it look like?
Today, hand cleaning is often connected with visiting
the toilet.Take for example the contact point airport where many people of different cultures meet in one building, communicating and shaking hands. Airportsor other frequently visited areas live on this movement, exactly the same wayas dirt and bacteria.
Lavaris offers an additional possibility for hand cleaning in
the public sphere.
