The use of hand sanitisers has increased over the years especially with more stress being paid on maintaining hygiene because of the occurrence of a number of new diseases strains resulting in an increase in the awareness of the use of hand sanitisers. However, unless these sanitisers are used correctly they do not provide as much benefits as you think. The effectiveness of the product depends on the ingredients and how the sanitiser is applied. Here are some points that you should keep in mind while buying and using the hand sanitisers.
The ethyl alcohol that is found in the hand sanitisers is proven to be an excellent germ killer. However, just the presence of alcohol in the hand sanitiser is not enough. According to studies the product should have at least 60 percent alcohol, which claims to kill most of the germs. It has been researched that products containing 40 percent alcohol when applied as sanitisers leaves about 50 percent of germs behind. Ultra Health Hand Sanitisers contain 62% Ethyl Alcohol and our surface wipes 70% Isopropyl Hospital grade alcohol. Make sure that when you apply the hand sanitiser; you cover the entire hand and the back of your palm and the wrists. Missing out on a single spot can leave behind a lot of germs. Apply the sanitiser in the nooks of hand and between the fingers so that you are sure to have covered all the areas.
Another point that needs to be taken into consideration is that if you are wearing rings on your fingers then you need to take them off while applying the sanitiser. Rings are a favourite hiding spot for germs.
Ultra Health hand sanitisers are available in a number of convenient sizes, a small 60ml carry bottle and a larger 500mm Pump pack ideal for the home or workplace. Maintaining clean hands is very important to prevent the spread of germs. Make sure that the content of ethyl alcohol is more than 60 percent for the sanitiser to be effective such as the Ultra Health “Ultra Wash” Brand. It has been shown that the use of hand sanitisers are far less likely to spread germs and fall sick.
It has also been shown that people using hand sanitisers show slower redevelopment of bacteria. They slow the growth of bacteria on the hand when used correctly. However, it may not be effective in preventing all types of germs, as some of the viruses spread through inhalation of the nasal droplets of another infected person. The use of hand sanitizers in schools & workplaces definitely have shown to reduce the spread of illnesses.
