Some amazing facts about hand sanitizers

  • Washing your hands with soap and water is not as effective as washing them and then using a sanitizer – many people think simple handwashing alone is sufficient but hand washing is just good at removing dirt and grease  - an alcohol-based sanitizer will kill more bacteria and viruses
  • Use hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available so when you are out and about your hand hygiene is taken care of.
  • Sanitizers with an alcohol concentration of between 60%-95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower level of alcohol or alcohol-free sanitizers which are not as effective on some classes of bacteria and viruses reducing their presence rather than killing them
  • The right amount of hand sanitizer to use is the size of a small coin on the palm of one hand then rub all over the surface of both hands until they are dry
  • Some people think that gargling with a hand sanitizer will prevent germs and bacteria from entering the throat – this is a myth and placing sanitizer in your mouth can be very dangerous
  • Alcohol-based sanitizer works by generating heat from the friction of the process of rubbing both hands together and this kills bacteria
  • A drop of hand sanitizer will shine up your phone screen and your glasses and also reduce the itch of a mosquito bite
