Hand sanitizers are mainly used in the entrances to nursing homes and hospitals and in many public washrooms. A person who uses hand sanitizer is also likely to show slower redevelopment of bacteria. We all have some bacteria on our hands at all times. Hand sanitizer tends to slow growth of the bacteria on the hands after appropriate use. It may not be equally effective in preventing all germs, since some viruses are spread through inhalation of the nasal droplets of infected persons, as with the common cold. However, use of hand sanitizer in schools is relatable to a drop in illness rates and better attendance records. Gojo PURELL Instant Hand Sanitizer is a popular instant hand sanitizer in convenient, portable bottles. It fits easily in pockets or purses and can be used anywhere. Another reason hand sanitizer may be more effective in some cases than hand washing, is that hand sanitizer is easier and quicker to use. Truly effective hand washing requires warm water, soap, and lathering and scrubbing for about two minutes. Hand sanitizer can be carried in small bottles, and takes about 30 seconds of scrubbing to achieve, in many cases, the same benefits as soap and water.
