To Wash or Not to Wash?

 

Whenever possible use soapy soap (really lather up) with warm water instead of any type hand sanitizer…Why?

LEVELS OF CLEAN

~~Cleaning surfaces:  removes visible dirt, stains or debris with soap and water

~~Hand sanitizer:  does not, visibly, clean the skin but kills germs and bacteria(label directions — wet time, approx. 30 sec)?

~~Sanitize:  removes germs or bacteria microbes by a chemical aide(Lysol, bleach, etc.)

~~Disinfect:  kills 99.99% of germs, bacteria and fungus but not spores(follow label directions — wet time)

~~Sterilize:  kills “ALL” contaminants and spores(Autoclave)

Always start with cleaning, using a general-purpose cleaner.  A surface should be clear of dirt and debris before sanitizing or applying a disinfectant. By itself, a general-purpose cleaner won’t kill bacteria or viruses but you should always start with this step.  After the surface is properly cleaned, it’s then important to decide whether to sanitize or disinfect.  The best way to clean skin is with soap and water.
