When To Use Hand Sanitizer

How often you use hand sanitizer is up to you, but there are certainly lots of situations that call for it. Take a moment to think about the last time you walked into a public space. Whether you’re thinking of a restaurant, gym, or your office, we’re willing to bet that you touched a few surfaces while you were in there. Every time you touch a surface, you’re exposing your hands to whatever germs and bacteria have gathered there. Where those germs wind up next depends on what you do with your hands, so it’s advisable to use hand sanitizer before you eat, touch your face, shake hands with anyone, or touch anything that you don’t want exposed to the germs on your hands.

How To Use Hand Sanitizer 

First, you will need to purchase a proper bottle of hand sanitizer from a trusted supplier like The Rag Factory. Then, according to the CDC, you will want to put enough sanitizer on your hands to cover all of the surfaces before rubbing your hands together until they feel dry. This usually takes around 20 seconds. For best results germs, it’s important not to rinse or wipe off the hand sanitizer before it dries.
