Blog: “We’ll fight them on the work surfaces…”

Self-cleaning kitchen counters… now, there’s a thing. PPG is collaborating on a titanium-dioxide coating technology that kills bacteria and dirt. The idea is that, applied to kitchen worktops, the technology will help cut down on the number of illnesses related to food contamination.

Sounds good, as long as we don’t have to worry about the effect of the technology on the food we prepare on the worktop. Though some would say it’s the steady elimination of germs, good and bad, that has led to the phenomenal rise in allergies.

No more grotty dishcloths
