Cuticura Original Anti Bacterial Hand Gel 100ml - Floral & Fruity
As the UK prepared for coronavirus lockdown, we commissioned a poll to find out as much as we could about the nature of panic buying in British supermarkets. The most scarce item on the shelves was actually hand sanitiser, with around two in five Brits (38%) unable to purchase a bottle. If you’re still looking for the alchohol-based gel, check out our list of in-stock retailers above.
Hand sanitiser can help protect you from infection while you’re on-the-go. The product is usually alcohol-free or alcohol-based – you want to be buying the alcohol-based variety, if possible. Alcohol is known to be able to kill most germs, whereas the alcohol-free varieties are thought to be less effective against viruses.
It’s important to remember though that hand sanitiser isn’t a miracle worker and cannot replace good old fashioned soap and water. So, while using it can help you fight potential infection, it’s still much better to wash your hands with soap and water whenever possible.
Yes, but it takes a long time – typically around 2-3 years. You may see an expiry date printed on the packaging of the bottle.
Alcohol is the crucial ingredient in anti bacterial hand gels, and being a spirit, it evaporates over time. As you might expect, the alcohol will evaporate faster once the seal on the bottle has been broken, and will also evaporate faster while the flip-up lid on the bottle is open.
If a dubiously-old bottle of hand sanitiser is all you have, it’s safe to use and likely still better than nothing. Hand washing with warm water and soap is better still.
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.
