Soap VS Hand Sanitizer

Handwashing – Techniques

• Always wet your hands before you put soap on – it will help to stop them getting dry.

• Make sure you dry them properly so they don’t get chapped.

• These are the areas of the hands that people usually miss.

Hand Sanitizing

• This kills 99.8% of bugs living on your hands.

• The gel contains hand moisturisers to keep your hands in good condition – therefore using alcohol gel is much kinder to the hands than soap and water.

• Alcohol gel should only be used on visibly clean hands. So if your hands look visibly dirty – wash them.
