The Benefits of Using Hand Sanitizer

There’s more to hand sanitizer than meets the eye. Besides being the go-to product for keeping our hands free from germs, it actually had lots of benefits, too.

It’s no secret that we think hand sanitizer is awesome at On The Spot, so we’ve outlined 6 of its benefits below. Keep reading to find out why we think hand sanitizer is the best cleanliness product on the market.

 

Stops germs spreading

Of course, the most obvious benefit to hand sanitizer is that it helps to stop germs spreading. A good quality hand sanitizer can kill 99.9% of harmful bacteria, stopping germs in their tracks. It kills microorganisms when it comes into contact with them, making it one of the best antibacterial products you can use.

 

It helps to reduce waste

You may be surprised by the significant amount of waste created by hand hygiene, such as power towels and water. When you use hand sanitizer, you cut out a lot of that waste.

If you use refills such as these 1.3 gallon scented hand sanitizer refill jugs in the scents lavender, white tea, and original, you’ll also be reducing the amount of plastic packaging you’re using.

 

Bacteria won’t become resistant

Antibacterial soap uses Triclosan, an ingredient that has been known to create and worsen antibiotic resistant bacteria.

With alcohol-based hand sanitizer (sanitizer which is at least 60% alcohol), you don’t have to worry about bacteria becoming resistant.

Alcohol is a powerful disinfectant and denatures the bacteria. That means it’s not possible that it can become resistant.

 

It’s portable

One of the biggest benefits of hand sanitizer is that you can carry it around with you wherever you go and not need to worry about finding a sink when you need to clean your hands.

Plus, it’s been said that people aren’t always honest about how often they wash their hands (or if they even wash their hands after using a public restroom!), so being able to share your hand sanitizer with others can only be a good thing.

 

It looks after your skin

Hand sanitizer can be really kind to your skin. It’s fast-drying so it leaves your feeling smooth and soft, and it can also be a great option for people who have sensitive skin. Our scented hand sanitizers aren’t just kind to your skin, they leave you smelling great, too.

 

It’s fast and effective

We need to wash our hands a lot. After going to the bathroom, before cooking, before eating, and after touching something dirty are just a handful of the times that we should be getting our hands cleaned up.

However, in an era where people want everything to be done quickly, washing your hands for 20 seconds every time you need to clean them can seem off putting for some people. That’s why an alarming amount of people don’t wash their hands enough!

With that in mind, hand sanitizer cleans your hands quickly and effectively. All you need to do is rub it into your skin for a few seconds until it’s dry and you’re good to go.
