Hand Sanitizers

Hand Sanitizer Liquid and Sprays

Experts recommend that the best way to prevent the spread of bacteria and germs is to properly wash your hands. Today, with our busy on-the-go lives, that is not always an option. Also, hand washing in public spaces can lead to touching more surfaces. Consider the simple task of filling up your gas at a service station. Simply using hand sanitizer would be far more convenient than entering the premises and using the public facilities to wash your hands.

Hand Sanitizer Effectiveness

It is important to use hand sanitizer properly for it to effectively kill bacteria and viruses. Ensure to use enough hand sanitizer to completely cover your hands and fingers. Rub your hands together for 15 or 20 seconds and allow them to air dry thoroughly.

Although many people have kept a mini hand sanitizer handy for years, this is a relatively new hygiene routine for many others. Remember that hand sanitizer can be very drying so we recommend that you use a moisturizer to rehydrate your hands.

Hand Sanitizer vs Handwashing

Hand sanitizers work by killing germs on your hands while washing your hands with soap and water removes the germs from your skin. Hand sanitizers are a great alternative to handwashing for those who find it difficult to wash their hands regularly.

In addition, hand sanitizers have been shown to be just as effective as handwashing in reducing the amount of disease-causing bacteria found on a person's hands.

When Should I use Hand Sanitizer

  • Exposure to other people's germs can be a real problem. Hospitals and nursing homes are highly susceptible to the spread of infections, which is why it's important to take precautions before and after visiting. It's recommended that you use hand sanitizer before you enter someone else's room to avoid spreading infection.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and wash with soap and water as soon as you can.

If your hands are visibly dirty or greasy, such as after gardening, playing outside, fishing, or camping, don't use hand sanitizer. Instead of using a handwashing station, wash your hands with soap and water.

How to use Hand Sanitizer

It's important to use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol when in the presence of children. Supervising young children when they use hand sanitizer can decrease the risk of them swallowing some, which in turn can greatly reduce their chance of becoming intoxicated with alcohol. This is especially important for babies and toddlers, who are at a higher risk for consuming the substance.

  1. Apply enough hand sanitizer to cover all surfaces.
  2. Rub your hands together until they are dry to the touch (this should take around 20 seconds).

Hand sanitizer should not be rinsed or wiped off until it is completely dry; otherwise, it may not be effective against germs.

Non-Alcohol vs Alcohol Sanitizer

Non-alcohol-based hand rubs contain benzalkonium chloride, which is effective against gram - positive organisms but not all gram negative bacteria, such as E. coli and Pseudomonas; as a result, they cannot be used in healthcare settings due to the risk of outbreaks caused by these bacteria. 

Benefits of Hand Sanitizer

  1. When you're in a public place, you may not have the luxury of being able to wash your hands. To avoid getting sick, use waterless hand sanitizer. It is quick and easy to use with no water needed. This item can be taken anywhere including work, school, the gym, or the office.
  2. Hands can harbor invisible microorganisms that can be transferred to other surfaces and people. Hand sanitizers, such as alcohol-based hand sanitizer, quickly kill these organisms and then evaporates into the air.
  3. Hand sanitizer is more accessible than sinks in many public places.
  4. The use of hand sanitizer may reduce bacterial counts on hands. Proper handwashing with soap and water is always best, but an effective alternative is using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which can reduce bacterial counts on hands by 99%. This only applies if the product contains at least 60% alcohol.
  5. Antimicrobial resistance is the ability of infectious agents to produce or be unaffected by antimicrobials. Antibacterial products like hand sanitizer can also promote antimicrobial resistance.
  6. Less irritating to skin
