The ‘Global Handwashing Day’ is celebrated every year on the 15th day of the month of October to mark the importance of hand hygiene and how much of it can be practised by handwashing. It is a global event and is celebrated all over the World to symbolize and identity the same.
Soap or Sanitizer- which one should we use?
With the current pandemic situation, washing our hands with soap or an alcohol-based rub has become a part of our daily lives. However, COVID or no COVID, the habit and practice of washing hands and keeping it clean is a must.
However, it all depends on the need of the hour and availability. If soap is available with water, then there is nothing like it. It will definitely ensure a cleaner pair of hands. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are the second-best in line, which are also great to eliminate any germs or disease-carrying viruses. Using either of the two before eating, touching public items like door handles and ATM card slots or extremely pertinent.
All of this is because we tend to put our hands on our face consciously or subconsciously, as a result of which the germs and dirt can transfer on our faces, something that we do not look forward to, right?
