I'm not a germaphobe by any means but it's always a good idea to have some hand sanitizer on hand (no pun intended, I promise!). Especially if you're like me with a child still in diapers. You never know when you'll need to change a diaper and soap and water may or may not be around. I can't be the only one who's had to do this in the back of a hatchback while on a trip up the mountains.
I received six bottles of Safe Hands Squirts to review in five different scents - Tooty Fruity, Cucumber Mint (2), Cool Blue, Bubble Gum, and Unscented. I don't like overly scented things or smells that are too fake but these are refreshing and light. Even the bubble gum, which I expected to be a scent that I wouldn't enjoy at all.
Safe Hands Squirts is a foam so it makes it less messy, especially on the go.
Their small size makes it convenient to stash a bottle just about anywhere. The diaper bag, car, cubicle, bathroom, purse, briefcase, tackle box, just about anywhere.
As I have gotten older my skin has gotten drier and drier. Washing my hands frequently with soap and water, especially in the winter, makes my hands look more reptilian than human. Safe Hands is alcohol-free so therefore not as drying as soap and water. Since it kills 99.99% of germs, this is a great alternative if you're lucky enough to have skin like mine.
Instead of alcohol the active ingredient is Benzalkonium Chloride which is a 4 on the Skin Deep database which means that the health risk is generally low but it does caution that frequent use could lead to resistant bacteria. This is a risk we take with frequent use of sanitizers and antibacterial soaps. So my advice is to use this and all similar products when necessary but do not over-use them. Most germs are good and instead of making you sick, they actually build a strong immune system.
You can purchase Safe Hands Squirts (and other Safe Hands products) on their website for $2.50 - $8.95.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
