How and when to buy hand sanitiser online
Shop for hand sanitiser and protect yourself from infection on the go at these top online destinations.
The best way to protect yourself from bacteria and infection is to regularly wash your hands with soap and water for a full 20 seconds (hint, this is roughly the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice) and to dry them thoroughly afterwards.
But there are cases when you don’t have immediate access to soap and water, like when you’re on public transport or walking to and from work. In these cases, hand sanitiser is a great alternative – specifically an alcohol-based hand rub.
Here’s our guide on where you can buy hand sanitiser online and when it is best to use it.
