Hand Sanitizers are deemed an essential product as its application has proven to slow the spread of viruses, microbes and germs - which is exactly what we need right now in South Africa and into 2020 to curb the potential devastating effect of the novel Coronavirus know as Covid-19. Our hand sanitizer deals have an extremely high antimicrobial efficacy rate and is thus most effective against viruses. Why? Because it attacks and ultimately destroys the enveloping, essential protein that commonly surrounds viruses, including coronaviruses, responsible for both the virus’s survival and its ability to reproduce. The effect of using a good quality hand Sanitizer is thus broad, fast drying and instantaneous.
As everyone knows, hand sanitiser products have been in alarmingly short supply in South Africa, a lot of people have been hiking prices because of the huge demand. This is just plain wrong and now very much illegal - thank you President Ramaposa for curbing this and many others smart and decisive actions! Clear Sky LEDs has been licensed to distribute our Hand Sanitizer Deals to our customers and fellow South Africans over the Covid-19 coronavirus shutdown which we’ve done at discounted pricing with free delivery on all box of pack deals. We guarantee these fair hand sanitizer priced deals as fundamentally fair and of the highest quality.
It must be said that washing your hands with soap and hot water as a constant and habitual act is still deemed to be the most effective means of slowing down transmission rates. The use of hand sanitizers is however very useful in situations and circumstances where washing of hands is not available, when you are out and about shopping or in your car or visiting people, and they are great to keep by the front door or at the entrance to high occupancy rooms as another means to reducing transmission.
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.
Absolutely and it will of course depend on how much you need.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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;
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.
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!
