There's a Wrong Way to Use Hand Sanitizer?!

Think you’ve been using hand sanitizer correctly? You might be wrong…

Sure, getting a pump or two of some hand sanitizer feels like you’re getting the job done and killing away all of those nasty germs. But, if you’ve been rubbing your hands for a only few seconds, then you’re definitely doing it wrong.

According to a new study, you should be rubbing your hands for at least 15 seconds to kill off the bacteria. Make sure you rub vigorously until they’re completely dry! If it takes you less than that, you’re not applying enough. 

So when you catch yourself in a moment where you're in need of some hand sanitizer, make sure you apply it the right way, otherwise you won't be preventing much.
