Where to buy hand sanitiser & wipes online in South Africa
Protect yourself from infection on the go with hand sanitiser. Here's where you can buy it online.
One of the best ways 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, say when you’re on public transport or walking to and from work. In these cases, hand sanitiser (or hand sanitizer) is a great alternative.
According to the Department of Health, you should be using a 60-80% alcohol-based hand rub.
