10 facts for proper hand washing and maintaining hygiene

  1. Soap and plain water best eliminate all harmful microorganisms on the skin.
  2. Alcohol disinfectant, antibacterial hand wash gel and wet wipes with alcohol are excellent and very effective means to quickly remove bacteria from the skin even though they cannot remove all types of microbes.
  3. Hand sanitizers and alcohol wipes can leave marks and grease on the fingers after use.
  4. If you are unsure and want to use hand sanitizers, conduct your own research. Examine the skin on your hands after using alcohol products.
  5. Wipe your hands with a dry tissue rather than rubbing against a T-shirt or pants (unless you have another option nearby).
  6. When using alcohol wipes, do not touch the food immediately but wait a while for the alcohol to evaporate.
  7. Every hand wash and disinfectant including soaps, gels, lotions and other has positive and negative effects. You should always choose a product according to your skin type. Alcohol further dries the skin, so it should be used more carefully.
  8. It is best to buy small (mini) packs of hand gel and other products first. After a few uses, each person will know which product suits that skin type and does not cause itching or irritation.
  9. Mini gel or other disinfectants are a great choice if you spend a lot of time in the field or outside the home. These packages fit in everyone’s pocket and are always available for quick use.
  10. It is desirable to wash your hands often because this keeps basic hygiene correct and effective.
