Here are a few facts that should answer the question ‘Is Germ X hand sanitizer effective?’
-Hand sanitizer in general kills at least as many germs as soap and water. It has been known for many years that washing your hands regularly prevents one from getting all kinds of sicknesses and helps to keep you healthy overall. Most hand sanitizers kill nearly 100% of all germs on your hands when you use them.
– Hand sanitizers are not expensive and therefore there is really no good reason why you should not use them, especially if you have one or more children. Kids tend to touch all kinds of dirty things in the course of the day; in fact, some seem to make a point of touching as many dirty things as possible and then putting their fingers in their eyes, mouth or up their nose. Having something right on hand to clean their hands with will prevent their getting sick and not only that, but teach them good health habits at an early age.
– Germ X sanitizers in particular are not only effective but easy to use. You can get wet wipes that are easy to use on babies and young children, foam sanitizers that are kid friendly and sanitizers that have vitamin E added. There are also Germ X sanitizers that have special scents added, from aloe to tangerine to lavender.
It is not a particular brand that is effective but the fact that keeping the hands clean is a sure fire way to stay healthy and prevent disease and sickness. There are also some specialized hand sanitizers on the market that you may want to consider, such as ones that combat MRSA. MRSA kills thousands of people every year and gets into the bloodstream via cuts and open wounds. While specialized anti-MRSA hand sanitizer is a bit pricier than regular sanitizer, it can be a good idea to keep this in your home’s first aid kit. You can get either the wipe version or the foam version of the sanitizer and use it if you or one of your kids gets a cut.
If you are not especially particular about what kind of sanitizer you want, then it is easy enough to buy any kind at a supermarket or store. The price varies depending on the exact kind and brand name you buy but generally speaking, they are cheap and well worth the price.
