So, you think you know how to wash your hands, but do you use an effective hand washing technique? Coronavirus (Covid-19) spreads easily from person to person, most likely through the virus on hands being transferred to surfaces other people have contact with. This could be a supermarket trolley, money, door handles…any surface. And this virus can live on surfaces for up to 12 hours, so it is likely we will all come into contact with the virus at some point.
But if we all maintained our hand cleanliness, and adopted an effective hand washing technique, we may be able to do our part to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 which is affecting so many people, especially the vulnerable.

When should you wash your hands?
According to NHS guidelines you should wash your hands after blowing your nose/sneezing or coughing; changing a nappy or going to the toilet, before and after handling raw meat, before eating or handling food and after touching animals.
At this present time, it is a good idea to wash hands as soon as you get home from wherever you have been especially if you have been on public transport. In the meantime, when you are outdoors with no means of hand washing, sanitizing seems to be the next best option.
FulviSafe provides effective antibacterial and antiviral protection to hands without the use of alcohol. Its patented ingredient Carbohydrate Derived Fulvic Acid (CHD-FA™) is clinically proven to work and is safe for use on babies.
Unlike conventional hand sanitizers, FulviSafe barrier cream and hand sanitizer do not contain alcohol. CHD-FA™ has actually been proven to help support skin’s health too – so no dry, cracked skin from excessive use of alcohol-based sanitisers. Its antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties mean FulviSafe can provide effective hand hygiene whilst you are outdoors until you reach a destination with hand washing facilities.
Hand washing is a simple, yet effective way to help prevent the spread of germs and unfortunately there are still many people who do not wash their hands throughout the day nor thoroughly enough. Think. Protect yourself and others and wash your hands effectively.
