Fully tested sanitiser When a sanitiser goes through testing, the manufacturer can find out what percentage of bacteria it will kill. Sanitisers that have gone through correct testing methods will have this statement printed on the bottle, with good quality sanitiser killing 99.9% of germs.


“There has also been a rise in individuals and organisations looking to make their own sanitiser and sell it on for high profits.”


Advertising a product’s testing results is also a good indication it is safe to use as well as effective, and ensures authenticity.


Care Another factor to be aware of when purchasing hand santiser is whether it has other protective factors.

Carefully monitoring and researching products before purchase is essential. Looking out for the inclusions above, and ideally a sanitiser which advertises itself as hospital-grade, can help ensure your business and your employees are protected, to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
