Kill Bacteria This Flu Season With Promotional Hand Sanitizers

cWhen deciding on what kind of promotional items to use for your company, you should consider how often these items will be used. Some promo items, like paper weights for example, have less of a chance of being used daily by your customers than customized promotional hand sanitizers. By investing some of your advertising budget into having custom labeled sanitizers made, you are ensuring that your logo will be seen multiple times, and by a variety of people.

Hand sanitizers are a popular way to clean your hands when people do not have access to soap and water. They are most commonly used while going out to eat, at work, in the car, at school, and in the general public. They are usually made from isopropanol or ethanol alcohol. Sanitizers are most often found as gels, foams, and liquid solutions which can be poured or sprayed on your hands. They are often used in hospitals, schools, and on the go. Parents who have young school aged children often use them to help prevent their families from becoming sick. Sanitizer companies claim that their products can kill up to 99.9% of harmful germs that are on your hands. For this reason they are especially popular during the yearly flu season, and when a new flu strain is being passed around.

The Food and Drug Administration has commented on the effectiveness of sanitizers in comparison to the standard method of cleaning your hands, by washing them with soap and hot water. They recommend using soap and water when it is available, but using hand sanitizers while on the go is better than not washing your hands. In addition to this, when your hands are not visibly dirty using hand sanitizer is an acceptable form of cleaning your hands. The Food and Drug Administration has classified hand sanitizers as health care worker hand wash, hand alcohol, or a hand antiseptic.
