RB to Help Airbnb Clean upJanuary 27, 2021
Reckitt Benckiser LLC (RB), parent company of Reckitt Benckiser Professional, has entered into a strategic partnership with vacation rental provider Airbnb Inc.
The agreement calls for RB to offer Airbnb hosts the opportunity to purchase product bundles containing cleaning supplies such as Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and Lysol Disinfectant Spray via their host account dashboard. RB will offer turnover kits for hosts and welcome kits for guests in 20 countries with the goal of expanding to 40 countries by the end of the year.
Scientists and research and development experts from RB have endorsed Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning process. RB’s team of experts have also developed information on hygiene best practices to include in the Airbnb product bundles.
“Protecting people from illness by establishing better hygiene practices as a foundation for health is core to the RB purpose,” said Rahul Kadyan, RB executive vice president of global business solutions. “Our brands are built on trust, scientific efficacy and our desire to educate consumers around the world to help break the chain of infection. We are excited to partner with Airbnb to help drive the highest standards in hygiene and give consumers the confidence to enjoy their stay at homes offered by hosts on Airbnb.”
