When to use hand sanitizer

This is a collaborative post 

The coronavirus pandemic brought up how many people don’t wash their hands properly and as regularly as they should. Sometimes you might feel lazy to wash your hands or feel like you don’t really need to, but you should. Yes, I’m looking at you (don’t worry, I’m looking at myself too).

Washing your hands shouldn’t be seen as a chore. It’s as essential as taking a shower, using deodorant and brushing your teeth. As the NHS mentions on their website, “washing your hands properly removes dirt, viruses and bacteria to stop them spreading to other people and objects.” With this in mind, washing your hands is quite important, right?

So, why do we have to be told to sing Happy Birthday while washing our hands? Probably because we weren’t doing it properly. To be honest, I’m guilty of it as well. It’s easy to be busy cooking a roast dinner and quickly clean our hands without thinking about germs and bacteria. We want to be fast, so we can put that bird in the oven with some lovely potatoes and veg, so we can grab a glass of red wine and relax.

Now, things are different. With a global pandemic, we definitely need to be more careful when washing our hands, and when soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer is the best choice. Ocean Free, hand sanitizer manufacturer, supplies a variety of liquid and gel hand sanitizer in various sizes, so you can use it when you are out and about or place it around your workplace.

The real question is: when to use hand sanitizer? As the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention mentions, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not readily available. So, when you are browsing your favourite boutiques, going on your weekly grocery shop or taking the bus, use hand sanitizer.
