Hand sanitiser and viruses, how does it work?
Many viruses consist of an outer layer composed of fatty substances and proteins. Alcohol has a harmful effect on these cell membranes. Hand sanitisers' high alcohol content acts to methylate and “burst” open the virus's cells' structure. Protein structures are broken down, which means that the virus can no longer perform its function. The coronavirus is an example of a virus with a fat and protein shell.
Use hand sanitiser as follows for best results:
- Make sure you do not have too much dirt on your hands, as this will reduce the effect. For excessive dirt – rub it off to the extent you can
- Take a generous amount of hand sanitiser into your hands
- Rub thoroughly! Wrists, palms, back of hands, fingertips, and the areas between the fingers. Ensure that all the hands’ surfaces are properly covered
- Rub until the hand sanitiser has dried and the hands are completely dry
- Invest in the right hand care. Do not forget to use a nourishing hand cream after using the hand sanitiser if you have dry hands.
Hand sanitiser or soap?
According to experts, hand sanitiser and hand soap work equally well against external coating viruses. When using hand soap, the shell of fat is dissolved, and the virus breaks down, while the hand sanitiser, as mentioned above, destroys the microorganisms’ cell membranes with its high alcohol content. Hand sanitiser is really meant for use in cases where there is no access to soap and water, but if there is access to hand soap and water, alcohol can be supplemented for extra effect.
Many people suffer from skin problems from washing their hands too much. In this case, hand sanitiser can be used occasionally as an alternative. The key factor for effectiveness is how thoroughly you wash or disinfect your hands, not which option you use!
