Healthy Hands Hygiene, Healthy Business!

Updated: Feb 10

Keeping your hands clean is still one of the most effective defences against the spread of germs such as the flu, colds and other potentially harmful bacteria.

Our hands are in constant use (most of the time unconsciously), touching our eyes, mouth, blowing our nose, coughing, sneezing, preparing foods and drinks, and unfortunately touching contaminated surfaces such as phones, doorbells, tables, door handles to name a few.

Keeping our hands clean affects us all, our staff, ourselves, customers and our business operations and cash flow.

How effective are you at hand cleansing?

Washing our hands (Sani-Hands) has always been the preferred method (advised by the Government bodies) of keeping our hands clean and eradicating germs.

But handwashing is not always easy in our 21st-century busy lives. Customers and business owners are constantly on the go, rushed off their feet and often forget about essential hygiene practices.

Hand Sanitisers (Sani Hands Sanitiser Gel) are a great way to keep our hands clean on the go, as it quickly eliminate germs. Hand Sanitisers will never replace effective handwashing techniques but they can be a proficient fill-in when there is a lack of essential cleaning facilities.

Not all Hand Sanitisers are the same, and some Hand Sanitisers are more effective than others. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Alcohol-based Hand Sanitisers help reduce harmful germs and bacterial.

The CDC recommend that Hand Sanitiser contain at least 60% alcohol. Gems Hygiene Hand Sanitiser (Sani Hands Sanitiser Gel) contains 70% alcohol.

Effective hand cleansing techniques to keep germs a bay and protect others:

Hand Sanitiser
  • ​Wet your hands with running hot or cold water

  • ​Decide how much sanitiser gel would like to use, and apply to hands

  • Apply soap, and rub your hands until lather is produced

  • Rub your hands together, rubbing the gel between your fingers and under your nails

  • ​Continue rubbing your hands together, cleaning between your fingers and under your nails

  • Rinse thoroughly and dry your hands

  • Let your hands air dry
