What people are saying...
Check out what businesses and their customers are saying about Step 'n Wash:
“We tested Step ‘n Wash in our first concept store, which opened in Ann Arbor in mid-February, and found that parents and kids responded well to the product. Step ‘n Wash is easy to install and easy to maintain, and most importantly it provides a safe way for kids to independently access faucets and soap dispensers in the restrooms of our concept stores. We’re very pleased with the product.”
Steve Davis, Senior Vice President of Borders Group Operations
Borders Group, Inc.
“As the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere, the Museum of Science and Industry welcomes thousands of students and children each year. Step ‘n Wash helps us create an accessible and comfortable environment for our youngest guests. This is a ‘must have’ restroom accessory—it is easy to install and maintain!”
Jennifer L. Christakes, Director of Facilities and Operations
Museum of Science and Industry
“Step ’n Wash will add a significant value for our passengers. Parents who travel — especially those with more than one child — know the challenges that come with lifting a toddler up to the faucet, maintaining an eye on their luggage and keeping their bodies balanced. Step ’n Wash effectively eliminates any restrictions previously placed on parents or supervising adults.”
Doug Strachan, Airport Innovations Manager
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
“Step ‘n Wash is a great family-friendly feature of our restrooms at Whole Foods Market. Step ‘n Wash makes a trip to the restroom with a young child less of a balancing act and it also cuts down on the amount of water that gets splashed onto the floor.”
Darrah Horgan, Public Relations Specialist
Whole Foods Market
“We use Step ‘n Wash for our general public and for our school groups. When you have a group of 20 Kindergarten students, it’s time consuming and exhausting to lift and hold each child while they wash their hands. Step ‘n Wash allows the children to be independent and wash their hands on their own. Our staff love it, teachers love it, moms and dads love it, but most of all…the kids love it!”
Simone Adams, Manager Education Operations
“Our camp instructors were so excited to have the extra help when washing 30 little hands! Several patrons wrote in that they had noticed and appreciated that we have installed Step ‘n Wash. The visitors really love it!”
Aneli Nugteren, Executive Vice President and COO
Fernbank Museum of Natural History
As one of Parent Magazine’s top 5 kid-friendly aquariums in the country, the decision to install Step ‘n Wash was an easy one. The ability of our young visitors to take care of themselves is just one additional customer service that we can provide to make a visit to the Florida Aquarium a fun family outing.
Jack Christensen, Manager Safety & Security
The Florida Aquarium
“Shedd Aquarium welcomes many families and thousands of summer camp and school children as part of our mission to connect people to our collection. Whatever we in Facilities can do to enhance each visitor’s experience is the focus of our own departmental mission. Step ‘n Wash ensures that our youngest visitors can exercise a little independence during their visits, while freeing up all those chaperones, teachers and counselors. Everyone wins!”
Brad Popovich, Vice President, Facilities
“Visitors at our Zoo have commented on how easy it is to get toddlers to wash their hands now that we have Step ‘n Wash in all of our restrooms. What an improvement to the wooden step stools that preceded them!”
Mimi Wickless, Education Director
Lincoln Children’s Zoo
“I just wanted to say that we saw Step ‘n Wash at Zoo Atlanta and we were really excited. My 5-year-old daughter with dwarfism could actually reach the sink for the first time in a public restroom, finally! It was such a relief after countless times of having to lift her to the sink. I think Step ‘n Wash should be mandatory in every public restroom!”
D. Harris, Los Angeles
“Kidspace visitors are saying: Thank you - what an improvement!”
Michael Shearin, Exhibits & Facilities Director
Kidspace Children's Museum
"As the owner of a Monkey Joe's franchise, a children’s indoor party and play center, it is paramount to the success of my business that we cater to moms, dads and especially their children. It was truly a welcomed addition to our facilities when we added Step 'n Wash. The countless compliments that we continue to receive is a testament to the ingenuity of this product. I highly recommend Step ‘n Wash for any business that caters to the public."
Brooke Hawkins, Owner
Monkey Joe’s Indoor Party and Play
“I am a mother of 3 small children and I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was in Atlanta this past March and ran across your product at the Atlanta Zoo and the Georgia Aquarium. I was so pleased to FINALLY see a product that assisted parents with the counter height problem with hand washing in public. Brilliant!!!”
Beth W., Tulsa, OK
I used Step ‘n Wash for the first time at the Discovery Science Museum in Santa Ana, CA, and all I could think was…wow, what a relief to my aching back, and it's about time! Thank you for inventing this. I sure hope to see it everywhere there's a diaper changing station or any public family area!
Erica K., Loma Linda, CA
I have been complaining about the inability of children to properly wash their hands in restrooms - especially at places geared to children. A visit to Chicago last week was SO refreshing - seeing Step ‘n Wash everywhere was a breath of fresh air!
Irene B., Boston, MA
I used Step ‘n Wash at the Phoenix Zoo last month. We were visiting grandma for Thanksgiving. As a mother of two small children I thought it was such an ingenious idea. Thanks for making a trip to the restroom that much easier.
