Have You Been Using Hand Sanitizer Wrong?

April 16, 2019

Y’all know by know that fecal bacteria is basically EVERYWHERE...especially on that device you’re currently using to read this article!

While getting a little dirty doesn’t hurt, it’s still a good idea to protect yourself from the bad bacteria that can make you sick. You’ve probably heard the advice the CDC gives for washing your hands, but what about hand sanitizer?

According to the World Health Organization, you should rub sanitizer on your hands for 20-30 seconds, however, they say it takes at least 15 seconds of rubbing before you start to reduce the bacteria on your hands.

Those 15 seconds can feel like an eternity when you’re rubbing in the hand sanitizer, but think about it this way...you’re doing your part to stop spreading your poo germs around!
