Hand sanitizer has been hard to come by since the COVID-19 pandemic started. So, we’re now selling one-gallon bottles of hand sanitizer in the EMS Safety online store. There are limited quantities, so shop while supplies last!
One of the most effective way to remove germs is to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. But if running water and soap aren’t available, you can use hand sanitizer that is made with at least 60% alcohol. However, you should still wash your hands as soon as possible.
When using sanitizer, you should:
- Review the label to determine the correct amount to use.
- Apply to the palm of one hand and then rub it over all surfaces of both hands.
- Allow your hands to dry completely.
