With the outbreak of COVID-19, handwashing is more crucial than ever. If a tap and anti-bacterial soap is not available, alcoholic hand gel is an adequate replacement.

The technique for handwashing with alcoholic hand gel is very similar to that of washing in a sink or basin, however there are a few key differences. This process should, just like handwashing, take around 20 to 30 seconds. Ensure you are letting the gel dry on its own, which should take less than a minute.

The most effective hand gels will have at least 60% alcohol. While others may still work, they won't be as effective.
