Just like face masks, disinfectant handgel has become an indispensable part of today's society. Since the Coronavirus outbreak, we have been trying to limit the spread of Covid-19 as much as possible. Hygiene, such as washing our hands regularly, plays a major role in this. A disinfectant offers a solution when there is no possibility to wash hands, for example in the supermarket. At most shops and public buildings there is a dispenser with alcohol hand gel at the entrance.
Disinfectant hand gel is an alcoholic gel that kills bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Disinfecting hand gel usually consists of one or more active agents, such as ethanol and one or more auxiliary substances, such as gel. An antibacterial hand gel must contain a minimum of 70% alcohol to work properly.
NOTE: Never dilute disinfectants with water! This makes the remedy less effective.
Alcohol penetrates the molecules of the cell membrane of microorganisms. Cell membranes consist of proteins and fats. The alcohol stops the protective effect of the proteins and the protection of the membrane is lost. In this way viruses and bacteria are made harmless. A good disinfectant hand gel kills 99% of the bacteria and viruses on your hands.
In principle, it is sufficient to wash your hands regularly with soap and water. Only use hand disinfectant gel when it is not possible to wash hands if desired. Excessive use of a disinfectant can cause pathogens to become desensitized and not killed sufficiently.
Make sure your hands are free of visible dirt. If necessary, wash your hands before applying the disinfectant gel. This ensures a better effect. Apply a small amount of hand gel in the palm of your hand. Then rub this well over both hands, just as if you were washing your hands. Don't skip a spot and don't forget the fingertips. When your hands feel dry again, the hand gel is well absorbed.
