From seeing it repeatedly on the news to singing “Happy Birthday” twice while you do it, regular hand washing has definitely been a focal point and one of the most important pieces of advice to follow during this pandemic.
According to the World Health Organization, by washing your hands with water and soap or alcohol-based hand sanitiser, you will kill viruses that might be on your hands, thus reducing the chances of being infected and reducing the spread of COVID-19.
When you are out and about and soap and water aren’t available, hand sanitiser is the must-have. It’s convenient and you can use it anywhere and everywhere. Have you just done your weekly shopping? Use hand sanitiser. Have you been browsing through your favourite clothes shop? Use hand sanitiser. Have you taken the bus to work? Use hand sanitiser.
A little bottle of sanitising gel, such as Ocean Free’s hand sanitiser gel, is the perfect on-the-go solution to keep your hands clean and feeling refreshed. What else do you need?
Ocean Free is an Amazon bestselling hand sanitising gel and a personal favourite. They are a leading UK manufacturer of hand sanitiser and disinfectant products, who provide high-quality products that have been tried and tested to all current applicable BS EN standards.
How to use hand sanitiser?
Knowing how to properly use hand sanitiser is as important, if not more, as actually using it. Start by putting enough hand sanitiser on hands to cover all surfaces. Then, rub hands together, ensuring contact in-between fingers and with fingernails, until hands feel dry. Do not rinse or wipe off the hand before it is dry. This article on the Food and Drug Administration website, also recommends not to use hand sanitiser if your hands are visibly dirty or greasy.
In addition to using hand sanitiser, don’t forget to follow the Government’s guidelines to help control the virus. And most importantly, keep safe.
