Every day we come in contact with thousands of bacteria, microbes, and parasites that are not visible to the human eye. Because we don’t see them it can be very easy to forget about the importance of keeping our hands clean. This notwithstanding, keeping our hands clean needs to remain a priority if we want to avoid the transmission of infectious diseases in our organism.
That being said, it is true that contact with these bacteria is inevitable (especially if you work outdoors) and our organism does battle them regularly on its own already. But we must also do our part to help our organism fight these bacteria. A fast and convenient way to do this is by using hand sanitizers.
To help you stay attentive to the cleanliness of your hands, we have created a list of the most important moments our hands need to stay clean:
After having been in public environments
When we are in public environments, we may come in contact with many things that have been used by many other people and are not cleaned regularly. Examples may include stairs, elevator buttons, and also public places like, among others, gas stations, hospitals, and banks. These types of places are part of our daily routine but we can still prepare ourselves and have our hand sanitizer with us so we can use it after having been in these public environments.
If your hands are not clean when you sit down to eat, you are actually helping the bacteria enter your organism faster. We understand that your time is limited, especially considering the workweek and other activities, and thus many times you cannot take the time to walk to the bathroom to wash your hands. And to add to this, sometimes you go out to eat and decide to go to the bathroom to wash your hands, only to find it already occupied or not in a sufficiently clean state for you to feel comfortable washing your hands there. For these reasons, we recommend that you always carry your hand sanitizer with you wherever you go. You can put it in your bag or even leave it in your car.
After touching an animal
If you are a person that loves animals, you know that it is virtually impossible not to touch or play with them. There is nothing wrong with this, just always remember that animals have a higher and more varied amount of bacteria than us humans. So when you are done playing with animals, use your hand sanitizer to disinfect your hands and carry on with your day.
As you have read, it is very important to keep your hands clean during the day. Glacial’s hand sanitizer can be your trusty companion in this because it kills 99% of bacteria, does not need water, and comes in two very convenient sizes. This can be either a 125ml bottle or a bag hanger that you can hang everywhere.
