According to the World Health Organisation, the gold standard of hand hygiene is still washing with soap and warm water. But if this option is not available where you are, hand sanitisers can also protect against disease-causing microbes.
How do alcohol-based hand sanitizers work? The Alcohol attacks and destroys the envelope protein that surrounds some viruses, including coronaviruses! This protein is vital for a virus’s survival and multiplication. Hand sanitisers needs to be at least 60% alcohol to have any effect on these viruses. Our Hand Sanitiser Stations are equipped with effective hand sanitisers.
To ensure you get the most efficacy from your hand sanitiser, you don’t need to use a huge amount! However, just like when washing with soap and water, you need to make sure you cover your hands (including between your knuckles, wrists, palms, back of your hand and your fingernails) fully, rubbing it in for at least 20 seconds to ensure it’s truly effective.
