How to wash hands with hand sanitizer to remove bacteria and chemicals?

The soapy water or hand sanitizer foams to trap and remove bacteria and chemicals from your hands. Before dipping soap and hand sanitizer, wet your hands with clean water. Compared to drying hands with soap, hand sanitizer can get better lather. Good foam will form pockets called micelles, which trap and remove bacteria, harmful chemicals and dirt from your hands.

In this process, it is very important to use hand sanitizer to foam and scrub your hands for 20 seconds, because these actions will physically destroy bacteria and remove bacteria and chemicals from the skin. When you wash your hands, you flush these bacteria and chemicals into the drain.

After washing your hands, please use a clean towel or air dry your hands.

Swallowing alcohol-based hand sanitizer may cause alcohol poisoning. why? Ethanol (ethanol) hand sanitizers are safe to use as directed, but if a person swallows more than two mouthfuls, they can cause alcohol poisoning.

Children may be especially likely to swallow hand sanitizers that are scented, brightly colored, or well-packaged. Hand sanitizer should be stored out of the reach of children and should be used under adult supervision. Child-proof hats can also help reduce hand sanitizer-related poisoning among young children24. Older children and adults may deliberately swallow hand sanitizer and get drunk.

Although this is not the main way the virus spreads, we are still learning more about how the virus spreads.
