Good thing Fully Promoted offers hand sanitizers to personalize which can kill most of those germs while preventing many illnesses from taking place. Hand Sanitizers are marketed as a great way to wash your hands when you are not around regular soap and water. To effectively use hand sanitizer, place an amount the size of a thumbnail on the palm of your hand and rub this all over both hands entirely, including the nail beds. It is highly recommended that if the gel evaporates entirely in under 15 seconds, then you have not used enough and need to reapply. History: Hand sanitizers were first available in 1946 and the same makers produced Purell hand sanitizer in 1988. At this time the popularity of hand sanitizer began to rise and is now very popular especially with parents who have children. Hand sanitizers work by ridding oil from the outer layer of skin and this typically prevents bacterial already in the body from moving to the surface of your hands. Benefits of hand sanitizer: -portable and convenient as well as quick and easy to use -many times more accessible than a sink is -acts fast to kill microorganisms -faster to wash hands than with soap and water -reduces amount of bacterial found on the hands -can help to slow down redevelopment of bacteria and the spreading of illness Use hand sanitizer regularly and it will help to lower the amount of germs we are exposed to every day and possibly reduces our chance of illness.
