Microbe Modern & HAI Microbe ties keep getting safer

Dec '08
It's no secret: Ties are typically major carriers of nasty disease-spreading germs that can pose a risk to health and life itself. But now, there's a totally safe way to have germs on ties with two new additions to SafetyTies collection of antimicrobial neckties: the HAI Microbe and Microbe Modern.

Featuring colorful, artistic renditions of microorganisms, the HAI Microbe and Microbe Modern encapsulate the ingenuity of SafeSmart, Inc., a St. Augustine, Fla.-based company that creates and distributes the 100-percent silk, stain-resistant neckties. Not only do the two new ties "carry" unique depictions of germs, they have also just been proven to be 99 percent resistant to Clostridium (C.) difficile.

"This bacteria is an instigator of healthcare infections, and laboratory results prove that our newest SafetyTies and their strong resistance to this and several other common germs will help prevent the spread of some very common diseases," says April Strider, SafeSmart Inc.'s co-founder. "We thought there was no better way to celebrate the tie-testing results than to highlight the germs on the ties in a fun, creative way."

As part of SafetyTies' doctor-themed collection, both the HAI Microbe and Microbe Modern include patterns of MRSA, VRE and C. difficile. HAI Microbe has a more classic, traditional appearance, while the Microbe Modern is more contemporary with large, aqua bacterium.

"These ties make great gifts, particularly for doctors or those in healthcare," Strider says. "They're highly functional in their ability to help prevent diseases, yet they're so fashionable. The germ graphics are a fresh twist on the same old tie, too."

SafeSmart is also debuting a new line of bowties. Available in stethoscope, vertebra bones, caduceus & stripes, and HAI Microbe patterns, as well as black, all five ties sell.

Just like other lines within the SafetyTie collection, the bowties are 100-percent silk, and resistant to stains and the spread of disease and foodborne illness.

After hearing a 2006 report on NPR linking physicians' neckties to disease transmission, April Strider thought of her own kids and resolved to reduce the spread of infection and disease through a unique product: SafetyTies.
