Germ Avoid - May 18, 2020 - 0 comments
It is no secret that keeping your hands clean is important for your health and prevents the spread of germs. It is imperative that you understand how crucial it is to practice better hygiene, especially during the time of the pandemic, COVID-19. It is up to you to do everything you can to take care of yourself, your family, and others. Here are some of the best ways to maintain germ-free hands:
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water:
- Wet your hands with clean, running water, turn off the tap, and apply soap.
- Thoroughly lather your hands with the soap by rubbing them together. Make sure that you lather the back of your hands, between your fingers, and fingertips.
- Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
- Rinse your hands with clean, running water.
- Dry your hands using a clean towel or napkin, or air dry them.
Use hand sanitizer if you are unable to use soap and water:
While washing your hands with soap and water is most effective when it comes to maintaining germ-free hands, alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol can be used if soap and water isn’t readily available. Take a look at the product label to ensure that it contains at least 60% alcohol.
To properly apply hand sanitizer, apply the product to the palm of your hand (read the directions on the bottle to learn the correct amount), rub your hands together, and make sure to rub all surfaces of your hands and fingers until it is completely dry.
Avoid direct-contact with public surfaces:
Although this may seem impossible, there are products out there that serve as a barrier between you and other surfaces. For instance, the Clean Touch is a product that has an elastic germ guard, which allows you to pull, push, and press anything without making direct-contact. You simply insert your finger in the germ guard and you’re ready to go. The elastic germ guard can be easily replaced or washed with soap and water.
In addition, another product that we offer are the Gas Gloves. The Gas Gloves allow you to protect your hands from gas pumps with a glove compartment that easily mounts within your gas tank door for easy access and use. Once you are done, you can simply throw them in the trash before getting back into your car.
