Frequently cleaning your hands can slow the spread of germs. Alcohol based hand sanitizers or gels or antibacterial wipes are useful alternatives if soap and water are not available (for example, when traveling in the car or taxi on the way to a business meeting, before eating an in-flight meal or snack, outdoor work settings, etc.)

Hand Sanitizers:

  • Use one or two squirts or pumps of the product.
  • Rub hands together briskly, including the front and back, between fingers, around and under nails until hands are dry.

Wipes:

  • Wipe all areas of hands until they are visibly clean.
  • Use one or more wipes and dispose in an appropriate trash container.
  • Let hands air dry.
