Help Keep Germs at Bay with Antabax Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is a simple alternative to washing your hands with soap and water. It's quick, portable, and convenient, especially when you don't have running water nearby. Hand sanitizer or hand antiseptic is a supplement that comes in gel, foam, or liquid solutions.

The Antabax Instant Hand Sanitizer is perfect for bringing with you when you head out. It is small and compact in a 50ml spray bottle. The spray helps to distribute the sanitizer more evenly over your hand. Once it touches your hands, it can kill up to 99.9% of germs on the surface. The formula doesn't feel sticky and dries up quickly which makes it convenient to use in every situation.

Besides using it on your hands, you can also spray this sanitizer on objects such as your handphone, doorknobs or anything you may potentially touch. As such, this is the ultimate hand sanitizer for when you are out and about! Additionally, you can also use it to clean any surfaces, and purify the air around your home.

The Antabax hand sanitizer is also available in gel form. The sanitizer kills bacteria, and at the same time, hydrates and nourishes your skin. It contains aloe vera, skin vitamins and Micro Moisture Serum. Dermatologically tested to suit your delicate skin, this product is gentle enough for babies, children and adults.

What to Look for When Buying Hand Sanitizer

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. Most products contain between 60% and 95%, but don't assume that the higher the percentages are more effective. For it to work at peak efficiency, it needs to contain some water. Products without alcohol likely won't be effective at killing microbes and germs on your hands.

How to Apply Hand Sanitizer Properly

When sanitizers work, their effectiveness is based on several factors: how much you use, proper technique, and consistency. Some situations in which the use of hand sanitizer is appropriate including when you're riding public transportation, if you've shaken hands with colleagues, or touched a grocery cart. Here's how to apply hand sanitizer properly.

  • Place a dime-size amount of hand sanitizer to the palm of one hand.
  • Rub your hands together, covering your entire hand, including between your fingers and up around your fingertips and nails.
  • Allow your hands to completely absorb the hand sanitizer and for it to dry completely. It'll take roughly 30 seconds. Don't touch food or anything until your hands are dry.

When to Use Hand Sanitizer

Using hand sanitizer periodically throughout the day can help to limit the risk of getting sick and spreading germs- but there are certain times when it's more important to use it.

The best times are when you're on the go and you can't access soap and water. That could be during your commute, or simply walking around the shops. It's also good to use it after washing your hands—to have the extra reassurance that you have really gotten rid of those germs.

When Not to Use Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer should not be used instead of soap and water when:

  • Washing is convenient
  • Your hands are greasy or visibly dirty
  • You have chemicals on your hands
  • You may have been exposed to infectious agents that aren't killed by hand sanitizer

To keep yourself and your family healthy, it's especially important to clean your hands after you've used the restroom or prepared food. Vigorously washing your hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds is best.
