There are several advantages to using liquid hand sanitiser. Hand hygiene is an essential part of any personal hygiene routine. It reduces the risk of picking up unwanted germs and bacteria and helps to prevent your germs from infecting someone else if you are sick. Although hand washing is a simple and effective method of keeping hands clean, there are many situations when access to washing facilities is not possible. Furthermore, many public washing facilities may be unsanitary, implying that hand washing is of limited benefit. In these cases, a liquid hand sanitiser is an excellent choice.
Working with a liquid hand sanitiser supplier in South Africa, you can offer your staff and visitors several benefits.
Hand sanitiser is effective at killing germs
Unlike other portable cleaning materials like tissues, wet wipes, a damp flannel, or a water spray bottle, hand sanitiser actually kills germs and bacteria. While a wet wipe may mechanically remove germs, they are not dead but simply displaced. Displacement leaves active, living germs on the skin. Furthermore, if the hands are not quickly and completely dried after wiping, the germs are left in a warm, damp environment – ideal conditions for growth. On the other hand, liquid hand sanitiser kills germs and prevents their replication. In addition, bacteria will not develop resistance to the ingredients of liquid hand sanitiser like they can to soap. Antibacterial soaps contain Triclosan, which
has been linked to the worsening of antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains on the hands. Since alcohol is the active ingredient in liquid hand sanitisers, there are no such issues with hand sanitisers. It kills bacteria by a process known as denaturation, which means it completely dissolves bacteria.
Comprehensive cleaning in one
Germs are removed mechanically through washing movements and chemically when you wash your hands through the action of soap or detergent. Similarly, when using a liquid hand sanitiser, the washing movements used to distribute the sanitiser evenly across the hands aid in removing dirt and grime. The sanitiser’s alcohol then kills any remaining germs. This dual action provides greater effectiveness than simply cleaning or disinfecting. Remember that the sanitiser should be allowed to dry for the best results, forming an anti-microbial layer on the skin’s surface.
Easy to transport
Leading liquid hand sanitiser suppliers in South Africa can place sanitiser dispensers (or portable bottles) in locations where traditional hand washing facilities are unavailable. As a result, hand sanitiser can go almost anywhere that people gather, whether next to workers on a desk or retail checkout point.
Simple, one-bottle solution
While other cleaning methods necessitate a method of wetting, a method of drying, and possibly another aid for disinfection, liquid hand sanitiser performs a complete cleaning operation with just one product.
In addition to keeping hands clean, liquid hand sanitiser can be used to clean surfaces, phones, handles, push buttons, etc., before use. While liquid hand sanitiser is not recommended for cleaning utensils or food surfaces, it works well as a general disinfectant for small areas where conventional cleaning methods are unavailable.
One common reason people do not wash their hands is that it is quicker to walk away after using the restroom. If you must walk to the bathroom before getting a snack and you’re starving, it’s easy to justify skipping hand washing to satisfy your hunger faster. Because it is faster, liquid hand sanitiser is far more convenient. There is no need to wash with soap and water for 20 seconds to ensure that all germs have been removed HOWEVER, DOING BOTH WILL DECREASE THE RISK OF GERMS.
