Stay Safe: Hand sanitiser or Handwashing?

Stay Safe: Hand sanitiser or Handwashing?

Whether you've always got hand sanitiser handy or you prefer washing with soap and water, you're already ahead of the game — both are far better at limiting the transmission of many viruses and bacteria than not doing anything to purify your hands. But is one approach more effective than the other?

Hand Sanitiser:

When you're not able to wash your hands, hand sanitisers offer a safe and effective substitute for a soap-and-water scrub.

It can be used on dry hands and uses a high alcohol concentration of between 60 and 95 per cent to kill germs.

ASI's Hand Sanitiser is a uniquely formulated antibacterial hand sanitiser that helps to prevent the spread of harmful germs. It is a 70% Alcohol Denat based. 

ASI's Hand Sanitiser formula is specifically compounded to target bacteria – protecting you against a range of potentially unsafe microorganisms and bacteria. 


Washing with warm water and soap remains the gold standard for hand hygiene and preventing the spread of infectious diseases. Washing with warm water (not cold water) and soap removes oils from our hands that can harbour microbes.
