How to Use Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer is a must in today’s world. With the latest news of the spread of diseases, it is essential to keep your hands clean.
There are a few ways to use hand sanitizer. One way is to apply it to your hands and then rub them together for about 20 seconds before washing them off with soap and water. Another way is to pour some hand sanitizer into your hands and rub it around for about 20 seconds before washing your hands with soap and water.
The best time to use hand sanitizer is after you have been in public places such as an airport or a bus station where there are many people around you. You should also apply it after shaking someone else’s hand or touching anything that may have been touched by other people, such as doorknobs and shopping carts.

It is not bad not to dry your hands after washing. It is better not to dry them because the water will evaporate, and the skin will be moisturized.
Drying hands with a paper towel or air dryer can lead to more germs on the hands. This is because bacteria from the paper towel or air dryer can get transferred to your hands when you touch them.
Hand washing is essential to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.
A simple way to remember how to wash your hands properly is the “5-second rule” – lathering for about 5 seconds (not counting the time it takes to turn on the water and wet your hands).
