Alcohol-based hand sanitizers help to deter the spread of germs and bacteria.
It’s important you use hand sanitizer properly to ensure it does the job it’s meant to do – get rid of germs before they are able to spread:
Don’t Use Hand Sanitizer if Your Hands are Dirty: Hand sanitizers are not meant to clean your hands. Rather, they’re meant to disinfect residue. Oil or dirt will prevent hand sanitizers from penetrating down to your skin.
Use the Right Amount: When it comes to hand sanitizer, less doesn’t mean more. You need to apply enough to thoroughly coat every part of your hands.
When combined with other preventative measures like proper handwashing, using hand sanitizer will help to keep you and everyone in your building protected against viruses and other illnesses.
