According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), only one in six people wash their hands after using the restroom, and it takes just seconds for hands to become contaminated with cold and flu germs. To combat the constant threat of infection this winter, Jean Fleming, R.N. and Infection Control Expert for Nice-Pak Consumer Products, Inc., recommends using hand sanitizing wipes like Sani-Hands®. Sani-Hands Instant Hand Sanitizing Wipes are proven effective at killing 99.9 percent of germs including Influenza, Streptococcus (Strep Throat), E. coli and Salmonella.
“Hand washing is the first line of defense,” says Fleming, “but it’s not enough to stay cold and flu-free.” Consider these facts:
• The average phone has 25,127 microbes per inch
• The average desk surface… 20,961
• Computer keyboard… 3,295
• Toilet seat… 49
“A single hand can carry as many as 200 million bacteria per square inch after using the restroom,” continues Fleming, “so even if you are the one person out of every six who diligently washes your hands, you’re still answering the same phones, touching the same countertops, and grabbing the same door handles as the six people who don’t.”
Sani-Hands Instant Hand Sanitizing Wipes are available in 50-count wipe canisters and 24-count packets.
Sani-Hands is available at national drugstores and mass retailers including Wegmans, Duane Reade, and Toys ‘R Us and Babies ‘R Us.
