Hand Washing vs Hand Sanitiser

hand washing vs sanitising

There are important differences between washing hands with soap and water and using hand sanitiser. Soap and water work to remove all types of germs and dirt from hands, while sanitiser acts by killing certain germs on the skin. Knowing when to clean your hands and which method to use will give you the best chance of preventing illness
