Keep Hands Clean and Healthy with EO® Hand Sanitizers
Clean hands are the key to staying healthy at home or on the go. According to the Center for Disease control (CDC), the primary method of cleaning hands is soap and water. In the absence of these items Hand sanitizers that deliver a minimum of 60% alcohol are recommended to clean hands.
This is especially timely given the fact that the human swine flu outbreak continues to grow in the United States and internationally. The CDC reports additional cases of confirmed swine influenza and a number of hospitalizations of swine flu patients. Internationally, additional countries are reporting confirmed cases of swine flu. In response to the intensifying outbreak, the World Health Organization has raised the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 4 which is confirmed person-to-person spread of a new influenza virus able to cause "community-level outbreaks."
While you can't see germs they are there all around at work, home and in your daily environment. While the recommended method is hand washing with soap and water, hand sanitizing wipes and alcohol based sanitizing gels and sprays can be an excellent second line of defense. For alcohol-based hand sanitizers, both the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommend a minimum concentration of 60% alcohol as it is the concentration range of greatest germicidal efficacy.
According to the CDC and the World Health Organization, there are also simple Everyday Actions that people can take to stay healthy, given the current situation.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
