Why is alcohol the main ingredient in most hand sanitizers?

Alcohol (or Ethanol) is effective at killing different types of microbes (both viruses & bacteria) by unfolding and inactivating their proteins. This process is called denaturation. Denaturation will cripple and often kill the microbes because their protein will unfold & stick together which means they either die or can’t reproduce. Either way, alcohol is a fast, cheap and largely effective way of cleaning your hands and surfaces of viruses, bacteria and germs.

Is alcohol effective at killing the SARS-CoV-2, Coronavirus?

Yes. Alcohol is effective at killing the Coronavirus, however the hand sanitizer must have an alcohol content of 60% or more. If a product does not contain alcohol, or a lower percentage than 60%, it should use a different chemical (such as Triameen) that has been tested to be effective against enveloped viruses.

Is it better to use a gel or a liquid hand sanitizer?

Liquid hand sanitizers act faster ( under 15 s) and leave less residual substance on hands. Gels require about 30 seconds to act, and time loss can reduce compliance. The technique of rubbing is also important; some hand surfaces are often missed using gel sanitizers.

Is using pure or home made alcohol effective at disposing any viruses?

No. Because alcohol can evaporate too quickly to effectively kill bacteria or viruses on your skin, it is necessary that the alcohol is mixed with Aqua. Homemade alcohol or the bottle of vodka in the freezer will be more effective but you really should have a pure alcohol solution. Vodka, for example, is only 40% effective, meaning the percentage of alcohol is at 40%. It is not pure. If you’re at home without hand sanitizer, it’s better to remember to simply wash your hands often with soap and hot water, thoroughly.

What if I don't have hand sanitizers at home?

Washing your hands with soap and hot water for 20 seconds is really the answer to disinfecting and cleaning your hands. Hand Sanitizer should be used when you are on the move, out on the road, in the car, or anywhere there isn’t a sink with soap. OR you can easily buy one of our deals online and have it delivered to your front door securely over shut down.

What’s the best way to apply Hand Sanitizer?

Here are the basic steps to follow when applying your hand sanitizer to maximise results:

1. First, make sure that your hands are clean, dry and free of any dirt, snot, vomit, soil, grease, blood etc. If your hands are seriously soiled, the best option would be to wash them vigorously with soap and hot water - and save the sanitizer as it will not be as effective;
2. Pump out a ten cent piece size of hand sanitiser, about one squirt, into the palm of your hand;
3. Rub your hands together, wringing them, making sure you get all fingers, and in between fingers, all over your hand area;
4. Keep rubbing in this way until your hands are dry;
5. Repeat if you feel it necessary.

Does hand sanitizer expire?

Along a long enough timeline, everything expires... So yes. Most hand sanitizers will remain effective for a couple of years, but only if stored correctively. Because ethanol is alcohol, it remains a volatile liquid and will evaporate over time, causing the hand sanitizer to become less effective. So to keep it out of the sun or anywhere hot to maximise its life expectancy.

How do I store my hand sanitizer correctly?

There are a few things you can do to store and keep your sanitizer safe:
1. Keep it out of the sun and at room temperature in order to avoid evaporation of the alcohol;
2. Ensure that with each use, the cap is securely closed;
3. Keep it out of little hands that might think it fun to spray it all over the place for fun!

When should I use hand sanitizer to clean my hands?

The quick answer to this is simple: when there is no soap or water available. Situations such as the following would be great times to use hand sanitizer:

• Before and After visiting anyone, anywhere;
• When out on the road away from a sink;
• If you’ve touched a railing or escalator, yuk;
• If you've sneezed into your hand, and then whipped your hand on your pants hoping no one saw you, wishing you had a handkerchief or had listened to our President about using your elbow;
• If you've sneezed into your handkerchief since it is already crawling with... you know;
• If you’ve touched a hand held banking device at a petrol station or in a shop;
• If you’ve forgotten not to shake someone’s hand;
• If you’ve handled any materials, product, plastic bag;
• When you enter a place of business, a shopping mall etc.
• If you're not at home;

When should I use soap?

The general rule is to wash your hands with hot water and soap first, use hand sanitizer second and only when there is no basin and / or soap available. This is generally the situation you have at home. So use soup: 

• Before and After caring for someone that is sick;
• When your hands are dirty, soiled, greased up etc. Remember hand sanitizer is much less effective with dirty, soiled or wet hands;
• Any time you are in contact with food - preparing food, eating meals, cleaning up;
• After visiting the loo (which you should be doing anyways... right?);
• Before and After changing baba’s nappies (same as above?!);
• After blowing your shnoz;
• After sneezing into your hands (even if you have a handkerchief);
• After petting your doggie or kittie that spend their time stretching out on the floor and rug where you've walked in from the outside;
• After taking out the trash;
• Before you go to bed at night.
