Also, keep a pocket hand sanitizer with you at all times. If there happens to be a hand sanitizing dispenser in sight, take advantage of it and use it. However, keep in mind that hand sanitizer does not work efficiently if your hands are visibly dirty, so don’t use it if that’s the case. Wash your hands instead. You should use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% of alcohol. Just squeeze a generous amount into the palm of your hand and rub together; make sure you get every spot on your hands. You don’t have to use a towel to dry them off as you would after you wash your hands. It’s best to just let them air dry.
It is essential that you try to keep your hands clean and wash them dutifully. We do everything with our hands: handle money, passing papers, typing on keyboards. It’s one of the best and most effective ways to prevent illnesses. The last thing we need especially during flu season is everyone catching germs from one another. Remember: Cleanliness is next to healthiness!
