A few random thoughts this time around about why we need to use alcohol-free hand sanitizers like safeHands®.
My digestive system has been out of whack lately, necessitating runs to the restrooms while out and about in my 2002 Volvo S60 that has over 343,000 miles on the odometer. I know, I am a braggart.
My grumbling belly took me to a major drug store chain, a regional supermarket franchise open late and a convenience store open 24 hours.
In all of the restrooms, there were signs telling EMPLOYEES that before they returned to work, they MUST wash their hands. Perhaps long-haired freaky people should not apply after all!!
Note that it ONLY told employees that they had to do so. And even if they complied, does their manager check to see if they did wash them?
Hey, we are only human and, as such, need reminders of just how important it is to wash hands, especially after using the bathroom.
One can just imagine how much bacteria is remaining on the hands of people who utilize the facilities while at work; and these people likely handle FOOD after they use the toilets/urinals.
I don’t know if this is fiscally possible, but perhaps every establishment that serves food should have some kind of ultra-violet light device to see just how well employees DO wash their hands.
In Big Jay’s world, if you aren’t clean, you can’t go back to making my seafood delight, No. 2 on the chef specialties menu. There are businesses that sell this type of equipment.
Here’s my final point about signs:
Why isn’t there a sign telling EVERYONE to wash their hands after going to the bathroom at every joint that sells or makes food? Duh!!!
Here are some things to know about hand sanitizer – especially the products that contain alcohol products.
I’m never going to tell you that any hand sanitizer will save you from every germ you come in contact with in the course of your day.
But, with all of the research I’ve seen, I would pick a totally tested product with the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride, like safeHands®.
Some manufacturers of alcohol-free products use different ingredients, proven to not be as effective.
Just to be clear, the safeHands® active uses a patented delivery system that does not dry skin like alcohol-based products. In addition, safeHands® leaves the skin in much better condition than alcohol-based products.
The safeHands® brand doesn’t contain standard emollients, because these would interfere with the killing power, and would leave residue on the skin that could gather germs.
By now, most of us educated consumers know that antibiotics are overused to the level where sometimes they don’t work. Ask me about having MRSA ten times. I know first-hand.
In my last blog, I mentioned to keep your fingers out of your nose. Then I stumble on some stories that are saying what’s IN your nose could kill MRSA, a massive discovery.
Who knew that boogers could be beneficial?
Now that I’ve grossed out many of you, that was never my intention.
I’m here for one reason only: to give you choices about how you clean and sanitize your hands.
With safeHands® proven to be just as effective (99.99%) about killing germs, and scientifically proven to not dry your hands like alcohol-based products, why would you use anything else?
I would love to hear your encounters with people you see who don’t clean their hands properly. Get in touch with me at BigJaySorensen@gmail.com. I will get back to you.
Meanwhile, spread the word, not the germs.
