What is Antibacterial Gel?
Antibacterial gel is most often used as a hand sanitizer when it is not possible or convenient to wash with soap and water. Just a quick squirt into the palm of a dime-sized amount is all that’s required. The gel is rubbed into the skin the same way hand lotion would be used, and quickly evaporates due to its alcohol content. Antibacterial gel kills most germs on contact and commonly contains ingredients to soften and lubricate the skin, such as aloe vera gel or other emollients. Antibacterial gel can be purchased in squeeze bottles or in small foil packets that contain just one use. The foil packets are great for tossing into a purse or glove compartment. You can even slip one or two into a wallet. It’s a good bet that throughout the day, or certainly the week there will be at least one or more occasions where hand sanitizer comes in handy. Antibacterial gel has become so popular you might see a bottle of it sitting just about anywhere, from your bank teller’s window to the cashier’s
