We all know by now the importance of hand hygiene in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus. Both the HSE and WHO have advised that frequent handwashing with warm water and soap is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of the virus. Just like a cold, coronaviruses are spread through droplets from a person sneezing or coughing and potentially, from a contaminated surface. As public health restrictions are lifted, social distancing, proper hand washing and respiratory hygiene is now more important than ever. We are now moving around a lot more which means being in contact with more people and we are touching many more different surfaces on a regular basis. As we move about it is not always convenient for us to wash our hands at a sink with warm water and soap. Hand hygiene gels and wipes are a proven alternative to hand washing with water.
The Early Years Shop has just launched three great new portable hand hygiene products that can be used in situations where you are out and about and don’t have access to a sink. The Hand Sanitiser Gel Sachets (Hand Sanitiser Gel Sachets) and The Alcohol Sanitising Wipes (Alcohol Sanitising Wipes both come in individual single use sachets and are perfect to fit in any sized bag. These are ideal for providing a quick and easy solution to sanitise hands without water, which makes them ideal to use in any location and on any form of transportation. They can also be used to sanitise small surfaces, toys, shopping trolleys etc.
The Portable Hand Sanitiser (Portable Hand Sanitiser Gel) is a gel with 75% alcohol and comes in a 100ml handy sized bottle that will easily fit into your bag (12cm / 4.5in). All three products are ideal for carers to have with them outside to ensure they can always keep their hands clean at all times. As they are all small and neat products they are easy to carry in a small bag or, with the sachets – even in your pocket!
