You've probably heard your mom here and there asking you to wash your hands over and over again without really caring. However, she was right. Washing your hands with soap and water or with liquid sanitizer dispenser is a good way to stop the spread of certain diseases. Sometimes benign, sometimes dangerous, these diseases we find in the germs carried by the hands.
Whether it is a simple cold, gastro or COVID-19, the simple act of washing your hands will significantly reduce your chances of catching them, but also prevent the transmission of them to the people you love. Kill two birds with one stone as they say.
Should we buy alcohol based liquid sanitizer dispenser?
So, it's not strange that alcohol-based hand sanitizer is gaining popularity at a time when everyone has to wash their hands even more frequently than before, or at least be more careful. No sink near you? No problem, our liquid sanitizer dispenser is ready to help you with all your daily activities.
However, do you know everything you need to know about liquid sanitizer dispenser?
Here is the bible for that to be the case.
Why is it important to disinfect your hands?
Let's start with the basics. Why is it important to disinfect your hands? Quite simply because they are an important vector for the transmission of a virus. We use them for everything as for cooking, washing, touching, carrying a box or even scratching. They are therefore carriers of germs, that is to say microorganisms which can sometimes be infected.
It is therefore important to wash your hands to avoid bringing germs to our mouth or transmitting them to others. All this makes it possible to reduce the transmission of a virus to a minimum.
But when should you really use liquid sanitizer dispenser?
- When your hands are visibly dirty
- after handling food
- Before eating
- Before taking any medication
- putting on or taking off your contact lenses
- After coughing or sneezing;
- After blowing your nose or blowing your nose at a child
- Before entering a public place
- After going to a public place.
How to properly use liquid sanitizer dispenser?
Washing your hands with liquid sanitizer dispenser is as easy as it sounds. However, in order to have the most optimal washing, it is important to:
- Use a disinfectant containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Place a sufficient quantity of the disinfectant in the palm of one hand to coat both hands completely
- Rub liquid on palms, backs of hands, between fingers and under fingernails
- Remove dirt with a wipe IF your hands are too soiled.
- Do not use the disinfectant if your hands are wet, as water dilutes the product and reduces its effectiveness.
If the frequency of use is very high and the skin on your hands is cracking or drying out, use a moisturizer immediately afterwards.
How do you know if it is a good hand sanitizer?
A good liquid sanitizer dispenser will be one that contains 60% to 80% alcohol according to the Health Agency of Canada. It has been shown that at lower or higher concentrations the antiseptic activity of a hand sanitizer is reduced.
So opt for a product between 60% and 80% alcohol. Know that the our hand sanitizer is made of 75% ethyl alcohol in order to respect these rules to the letter and offer you unparalleled quality.
In addition, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer must be approved by Health Canada, which is the case with us.
Safety first with liquid sanitizer dispenser
With any product come some safety tips. It is important to remember that the use of hand sanitizer is for external use only and that eye contact should be avoided. If necessary, rinse well with water. It is essential to keep the container of your hand sanitizer away from flames and sources of heat.
Not to mention that it is recommended not to use this product on a child under two years of age.
The hand washing method
Hand washing consists of a series of steps that loosen and safely remove dirt and microorganisms through chemical and physical actions. When done correctly, each step can divide the amount of microorganisms on the skin by 10,000.
The hand sanitizing process thus includes the following steps:
- Moistening hands to loosen dirt
- Hand washing
- apply soap (the chemical action will dissolve the dirt)
- using water to intensify the effect of the soap
- rubbing their hands together to use mechanical energy to increase the effect of soap on all hands
- take the necessary time for washing
- Rinsing the hands:
- use water to mechanically remove soap and dirt, then break up and dilute residue
- take the time necessary to evacuate the residues
- Drying hands, the two main effects of which are:
- paper and textile hand towels produce a mechanical action to absorb and remove residues
- hand dryers use the movement of air to mechanically remove moisture, and heat to evaporate it (ambient heat in forced air devices). You do not need to dry after using liquid sanitizer dispenser
Liquid sanitizer dispenser Reduce the number of infectious microorganisms
Microorganisms play an important role in the skin flora. The skin is indeed home to beneficial, harmless and unwanted microbes which come into two types: resident flora and transient flora. The resident flora is permanent and is found on the outer and surface layers of the skin.
Transient flora colonizes only the surface layers of the skin after contact with contaminated sources such as fluids, surfaces (including the stomach, nose, mouth, and other parts of the body) and anything we touch daily. These microorganisms survive on the skin, but generally do not multiply because the environment is too harsh ... unless the hands are wet.
How does liquid sanitizer dispenser kill germs?
Transient germs eliminate through thorough liquid sanitizer dispenser. Moreover, it prevents us from transmitting transient flora to our mouth, nose or eyes, but also from contaminating surfaces touched by other people.
But if this technique makes it possible to divide by 10,000 the quantities of microbes present on the skin, pathogens can still remain and cause an infection: Norovirus requires only 10 particles to be infectious and SARS-CoV-2 between 300 and 2000 particles.
