Coronavirus (COVID-19) is now the UK’s number one conversation topper, overtaking Brexit and even the weather. Steps to keep germs at bay include thorough washing of hands and should wherever possible be the start of the process to remove germs. Not just the hands, but the wrists too!

Washing your hands only will not remove or kill invisible viruses and other germs. Sanitising them with alcohol-based hand sanitiser after washing hands will complete the job. They are also extremely useful when water is not available.

The Petlife owned product Conficlean2 is a powerful foam hand cleanser. The product is an alcohol based hand sanitiser which is effective against viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungi. This amazing yet effective product is designed for use on the go as well as within the home. Make sure to re-apply every 2 – 3 hours or after washing hands for that final layer of protection in the process which ultimately gives you a better chance of not picking up germs found in shared places.

Dirty hands and touching faces are the quickest way for germs to spread. Whilst we cannot account for other people’s actions, we can at the very least try to protect ourselves by making time to thoroughly cleanse hands and arms and passing on the correct instructions to family, friends and colleagues.

The NHS has a useful page with diagrams on how to wash your hands correctly. Water consumption is going to increase during the current rounds of hand washing awareness. Please do think of the planet in all of this and only turn on the tap when your hands and arms are fully covered in soap. https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/
