The Benefits of Hand Sanitiser

I’m not a big fan of germs. Yes, they are everywhere. Still, not a big fan. I love having a travel-size hand sanitiser with me when I’m out and about to make sure that my hands and my children’s hands are fresh and clean wherever we go.

1. It kills germs, bacteria and viruses.

When soap and water are not available, hand sanitiser is the best way to kill germs, bacteria and viruses. According to the CDC website, an effective hand sanitiser has between 60% and 95% alcohol content. When used properly, an effective hand sanitiser, such as this hand sanitiser gel by Ocean Free, will kill 99.999% of bacteria, germs and some viruses.

Of course, it’s also important to use hand sanitiser properly. The Food and Drug Administration recommends rubbing hand sanitiser all over your hands, making sure to get between your fingers and on the back of your hands until it’s dry.

Something to note is that it’s also highly important to promote safe use of hand sanitiser by children as it can be poisoning when ingested. For this reason, supervise young children when they use sanitising gel and store your hand sanitising bottles far from reach.

2. Reduces infection and spreading.

By killing any viruses, germs and bacteria that might be on your hands, the regular use of hand sanitiser will reduce your chances of being getting sick and will also reduce the spread of said viruses, germs and bacteria.

3. Is better than soap and water (in certain situations).

According to this article on Harvard Health, the use of hand sanitiser by toddlers may be associated with lower rates of respiratory infections than handwashing with soap and water alone. The frequent use of hand sanitiser showed to lead to fewer respiratory infections, less antibiotic use and fewer sick days for children.

4. Lightweight and convenient.

Hand sanitiser is the on-the-go solution to keeping your hands germ-free. Small bottles of hand sanitiser don’t take up any space and they can fit mostly anywhere – purses, bags, pockets, you name it. Take a small bottle with you wherever you go to keep your hands clean as a whistle.

5. There are plenty of options available.

Soothing hand sanitiser, refreshing hand sanitiser, hydrating hand sanitiser.. there are many hand sanitisers available online for you to choose from, so get browsing and stay safe!
