There’s a proper way to make use of hand sanitizers and not many of us know about it. First and foremost it's important that you pick the right kind of sanitizer/ hand disinfectant from the market. Make sure that the alcohol content exceeds 60% which suffices to kill the germs. Also, make sure that it has natural moisturisers added like aloe vera for keeping your skin hydrated.
Tips for effective usage:
- Hands should be not be soiled or greasy: To use a hand sanitizer efficiently, ensure your hands look clean, devoid of any noticeable dirt and muck before application. Otherwise, the sanitizer will not be able to kill the germs.
- Squeeze out an adequate/generous amount of sanitizer into your palms: Almost two teaspoons. It should be enough to cover your palms, wrist, fingers and nails. The fluid should cover your entire hands and not just limited to your palms.
- Vigorous rub: Rub the sanitizer vigorously all over your hands, palms, fingers, fingertips and especially nails for good thirty seconds. Once your hands are dried out, you’re done.
- No Towel drying: For no reason wash your hands with water or dab them dry with a tissue or a towel after the use of the hand sanitizer as this will work against the effect of the product.
