Have you Been Using Hand Sanitizer the Wrong Way?
Think you’ve been using hand sanitizer correctly? Well, you might be wrong…
If you're getting a pump or two of some hand sanitizer and rubbing for a only a few seconds, you're actually not killing away all of the germs from your hands.
According to a new study, you should be rubbing your hands for at least 15 seconds to kill off the bacteria. Make sure you rub vigorously until they’re completely dry though! If it takes you less than that, you’re not applying enough.
So when you catch yourself in a moment where you're in need of some hand sanitizer, make sure you apply it the right way, otherwise you won't be preventing much.
