One of the best ways to stay safe from coronavirus is also one of the simplest: practice good hand hygiene!
Our hands are often the connecting piece necessary for transmission. While we can’t always control what we touch, and we certainly can’t control who else touched it, we can look after our health by keeping our hands clean.
While washing with good old fashioned soap and water is best, it’s not always practical. For those moments when you don’t have access to soap and water, hand sanitizer is a great stand-in.
How does hand sanitizer work?
The key ingredient that makes most hand sanitizers work is alcohol. These organic molecules destroy pathogens, agents that cause disease, by breaking apart proteins, disrupting the metabolism of cells or splitting cells into pieces. There’s a catch though — hand sanitizer needs to contain at least 60% alcohol to work. One of our favorites, Nyco’s Alco-Gel Plus Hand Sanitizer, contains 75% isopropyl alcohol, making it perfect for use in healthcare, schools, hospitality, offices, fitness centers, foodservice and more.
Nyco’s Alco-Gel Plus Hand Sanitizer is a light citrus-scented gel hand sanitizer that kills 99.99% of common germs that can cause illness. It evaporates quickly with no sticky residue and leaves hands smooth and refreshed.
How should I use hand sanitizer?
The method you use to apply hand sanitizer is important, just as it is when you are washing your hands.. Apply a dollop to you palm, then rub your hands together, applying the sanitizer to the surfaces of both hands. Don’t forget to rub between your fingers! Continue to rub your hands together until the solution is dry, and wash your hands with soap and water as soon as you are able.
Hand sanitizer plays an important role in protecting your health and your community from the spread of coronavirus. To place your order for Nyco’s Alco-Gel Plus Hand Sanitizer, give us a call today at 800-821-2389!
