Soap? Sanitizer? Which one?

We all know hand washing prevents the spread of most infections. What do we know about soap? And how

Soap need not be antibacterial. Regular soap works by “connecting” things to water that normally will not lift from a surface (oil or grease, for example), including microorganisms responsible for sickness.

Waterless hand scrubs, also known as hand sanitizers, are another effective method of killing microorganisms. Note, however, that they cannot remove dirt or grease in the same way as washing hands with soap. Just like using water without soap, these cleaners will not lift grease, dirt, or oil off your hands.

Fitting both soap and sanitizers in an office is simple. Soap and sanitizer dispensers are an easy investment that can be placed on countertops, or mounted to walls.
