- sterile distilled or boiled cold water
How To Use Your Hand Sanitizer:
After preparing your hand sanitizer, be aware that when using it you will need to rub it into your skin until your hands are completely dry. With that being said, below are some guidelines to effectively use hand sanitizers.
- Spray or apply the sanitizer to the palm of one hand.
- Thoroughly rub your hands together. Make sure you cover the entire surface of your hands and all your fingers.
- Continue rubbing for 30 to 60 seconds or until your hands are dry. It can take at least 60 seconds, and sometimes longer, for hand sanitizer to kill most germs.
