Hand Sanitizer... Still?

Hand sanitizer remains important for several reasons:

  1. Effective at Killing Germs: Hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content are highly effective at killing a broad spectrum of germs, including viruses and bacteria. Our Hand Sanitizer has a 70% alcohol content! They provide a convenient and portable option for hand hygiene when soap and water are not readily available.

  2. Convenience: Hand sanitizer is convenient for use in situations where soap and water are not accessible, such as when traveling, commuting, or during outdoor activities. Its portable nature makes it easy to carry in a pocket, purse, or bag.

  3. Complementary to Handwashing: While handwashing with soap and water is the gold standard for hand hygiene, hand sanitizer can serve as a convenient and effective alternative in situations where handwashing is impractical or not possible. It's particularly useful in healthcare settings, where frequent hand hygiene is essential.

  4. Reducing Transmission of Illnesses: Regular use of hand sanitizer can help reduce the transmission of infectious illnesses, including the flu, common cold, and gastrointestinal infections. By killing germs on the hands, hand sanitizer helps prevent the spread of illness from person to person.

  5. Promoting Public Health: Hand sanitizer use not only protects individuals but also contributes to public health by reducing the overall spread of infectious diseases within communities. During times of heightened concern, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, widespread use of hand sanitizer can help mitigate the impact of the virus.

  6. Maintaining Hygiene Practices: Incorporating hand sanitizer into daily routines reinforces good hygiene practices and encourages regular hand hygiene. This is particularly important in settings where people may come into contact with high-touch surfaces or interact closely with others.

While hand sanitizer is a valuable tool for hand hygiene, it's important to use it correctly for optimal effectiveness. This includes applying a sufficient amount of sanitizer to cover all surfaces of the hands and rubbing hands together until they are dry. Additionally, hand sanitizer should not be used as a substitute for handwashing in situations where hands are visibly dirty or contaminated.
