How to Properly Use Hand Sanitizers

During these uncertain times, we all need to wash our hands frequently. When you are “out and about”, Hand Sanitizers are the perfect solution. They are portable and ready to use at any given time. Hand sanitizers reduce bacterial counts on your hands and act quickly to kill microorganisms on your hands. Just as with washing you hands with soap, you must use proper protocols for your hand washing efforts to be effective.



1. Make sure all organic matter is removed from hands
All visible organic matter, like dirt, must be removed from hands prior to applying hand sanitizer. Wipe away any dirt or grime prior to applying.

2. Apply a proper amount
Apply a dime sized amount of hand sanitizer to the palm of one of your hands.

3. Rub hands well
Be sure that as you rub your hands together, you catch the entire surface, including your fingertips and your cuticles.

4. Apply until dry
Continue rubbing your hands together until the hand sanitizer has adsorbed.



There are a lot of hand sanitizers being produced currently by manufacturers jumping on this latest bandwagon, and not all are created equally as some manufacturers are cutting corners to create a product quickly. These products are less effective, smell bad, and dry out your skin.
