Demand for hand sanitizers has surged around the globe. The COVID-19 pandemic reinforces the importance of handwashing to curb the infection rate.
Let's discuss some reasons why you should always carry a hand sanitizer with you.
1. Limiting the Spread of Germs
Hands are the primary pathways of germ transmission; hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure in limiting the transfer of harmful germs, thereby preventing infections.
It's crucial to frequently wash hands with soap and water to eliminate the maximum amount of germs from our hands. However, we don’t always have access to clean water and soap. In which case, hand sanitizers can save the day.

Its reusable nature protects the environment from excess waste, and it contains non-toxic chemicals and alcohol to fight against germs.
2. Maintaining Proper Hygiene
The coronavirus outbreak has forced the world to reconsider the importance of maintaining proper hygiene. The virus spreads from respiratory droplets that can survive for hours on various surfaces.
When we touch these surfaces, we contaminate our hands and unknowingly transmit the virus to other surfaces or other people.
An alcohol hand sanitizer effectively kills germs; however, make a note of the amount of alcohol in a sanitizer before you buy it.
The CDC recommends buying a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Studies show that sanitizers with 60 to 95% alcohol are the most effective in killing harmful germs.
3. Disinfecting High-Traffic Surfaces
Another reason for carrying a hand sanitizer in your pocket is to help you disinfect high-traffic surfaces before touching them. The screens of our phones, our desktops, our kitchen table, light switches, etc., are all high-touch surfaces that contain more germs than a toilet seat.
Having a hand sanitizer handy will help you disinfect these surfaces so you can ensure you’re not catching germs from them.
