Everything has an expiration date.
And I stumbled onto a story about a guy who wrote about this winter season, when it seems like everyone is sick.
He got a huge (or is the word YUGE?) bottle of ALCOHOL-LADEN hand sanitizer (containing 62 percent ethyl alcohol) and noticed that the expiration date was passed. https://goo.gl/Dhl73D
I read – like you just did – that over time, the effectiveness of the active ingredient lessens; especially if the liquid is not tightly sealed in the case of ALCOHOL. Read about that here. https://goo.gl/wLV8Ii
I may be obsessive, but I check the expiration date on almost anything I put ON my body and IN my body.
Many of you likely do not. Maybe it’s the same thinking of the “five second-rule.” You know, if food falls on the floor, it’s ok to eat it if it’s under five seconds. I digress.
To be fair, even ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizers, like safeHands® brand, has an expiration date on the bottom of the bottle.
I’m simply pointing out that certain ALCOHOL-LADEN products fall short after a certain time. Here’s another explanation of that information; this time from Great Britain. https://goo.gl/HLshqD
Remember; everything has an expiration date.
We are currently taking care of my 92-year-old aunt, bless her heart. She often doesn’t have the same hygiene savvy that we have. And she touches surfaces, handles on appliances, doorknobs, etc… The same ones WE touch. You catch my drift.
And we have been known to grab the anti-bacterial wipes to clean up behind her. I’ll admit that.
In addition, we always have a bottle of safeHands® nearby to help when we can’t wash our hands as quickly as we’d like.
Sure, soap and water works if you are diligent in how LONG you wash with the correct technique.
But anytime you need to clean your hands, for example: before eating, after sneezing or coughing, when handling money, after changing diapers, and after handling pets, following your 92-year-old aunt around the house—use safeHands® anytime soap and water are not available.
The product safeHands® is comprised of a proprietary mix of ingredients; with the active ingredient Benzalkonium chloride.
The safeHands® brand has been scientifically proven to kill 99.99% of germs when used properly on your hands – JUST LIKE ALCOHOL – but without the drying properties they inherently possess. See the science behind safeHands® brand here. http://www.safehands.com/our-science/
I’ve told you how ALCOHOL-FILLED hand sanitizers can be abused by kids and adults alike. Check out some of my other blogs on this site here. https://goo.gl/IwllAu
Back to safeHands® brand. It is NON-TOXIC, and totally ALCOHOL-FREE.
It won’t become flammable near a fire source, unlike an ALCOHOL-BASED product.
You can’t get drunk on safeHands® like you can with an ALCOHOL-LADEN sanitizer.
Oh, and I almost forgot. I had to pick-up from high school two of my four grandchildren earlier in the day of the writing of this blog.
Because schools are a breeding ground for not only bacteria, but nasty viruses like colds and flu.
And we had to bring them to the doctor to get checked.
The school nurse said, “I almost filled up this long sheet today with kids being sick.”
And here I thought they only wanted to get out of taking a test.
Have you watched how kids in school DON’T practice the best hygiene?
It’s almost akin to my aunt’s daily routine, bless her heart…again.
Everything has an expiration date.
I just don’t want MINE to come too soon because of dangerous germs.
