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.
Currently, stocks of hand sanitiser are low at many retailers because of increased demand due to the coronavirus. Be aware that many retailers may be out of stock, or impose limits on how much you can buy. So shop around, but don’t pay over the odds!
The good news is, the best way to protect yourself from infection is to regularly wash your hands with soap and water, for a full 20 seconds and make sure you dry them thoroughly. (Hint, this is roughly the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice.)
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 you can use it.

How do I wash my hands properly?
According to the World Health Organization, washing your hands properly should take as long as singing “Happy Birthday” twice – which is roughly 20 seconds. Make sure you use soap and warm water, and dry your hands thoroughly afterwards. You can click here for the full WHO guide.
