Quick tips for Dettol Instant hand sanitizer:

  • As the sanitizer contains alcohol, it is flammable in nature. Hence, it is advised to keep it away from fire and not store it in areas such as the kitchen.

  • Do not use it on sensitive areas of the skin or open wounds and cuts as it might cause irritation.

  • If you experience skin irritation post the use of the sanitizer or if you accidentally swallow the sanitizer, consult your doctor immediately.

  • Avoid contact with the eyes. If by mistake, the sanitizer gets into your eyes, then wash them with cold water. Do not use soap and water.

  • In case you’re using it for children, make sure to use it under adult supervision as chances of swallowing, licking, and using it on open wounds is high.

  • Do not apply or use it on your face or intimate areas.

  • Rub it at least for 20 seconds until it is dry. Remember, squirting a few drops into your palms and then wiping your hands isn’t going to help.

FAQs related to Dettol Instant hand sanitizer:

Q. Does hand sanitizer really kill 99.9% of germs?

Most alcohol-based hand sanitizers are known to kill bacteria and microbes that are responsible for causing diseases. However, some germs like norovirus, which are known to cause foodborne illnesses are not killed by sanitizers. Other than that, most sanitizers do offer protection against a wide range of microbes.


Q. How long does hand sanitizer last on your hands?

This may vary from product to product. However, most hand sanitizers are known to be effective from a few minutes to hours. So, read the label of your sanitizer to know how long it offers protection against germs.


Q. Where do the germs go after using hand sanitizer?

As hand sanitizers contain alcohol, they are known to kill the bacteria. Alcohol is known to cause rupture of the bacterial membrane, thereby killing the bacteria. 


Q. Is it safe to eat with your hands after using hand sanitizer?

Most people use a hand sanitizer to clean their hands before eating food as a sanitizer effectively kills the bacteria present in the hands, thereby lowering the risk of infections. Hence, using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before eating with your hands is considered to be safe.


Q. Do you have to wash your hands after using hand sanitizer?

The alcohol in hand sanitizer works best when you rub it all over your hands, making sure to get between your fingers and on the back of your hands. Do not wipe or rinse off the hand sanitizer before it is dry.


Q. How do you clean your hands with sanitizer?

Pour 5 - 10 ml of hand sanitizer over the dry hand, nails, and grooves up to the elbow. Rub vigorously for 2 minutes. Do not wash your hands with soap or under plain tap water after using a hand sanitizer as doing so can lower its effectiveness.


Q. How to prevent the spread of respiratory infections?

Most of us may not know this interesting fact that many of the germs that cause respiratory infections can be easily transmitted from one person to another by breathing in respiratory droplets released by another person during coughing or sneezing, by touching another object that is exposed to the virus via respiratory droplets or by touching the nose, mouth, or eyes after being in contact with someone who has a respiratory infection. The best preventive method to avoid contact with droplets is to wash your hands with soap and water. In situations where handwashing may not be possible, use a hand sanitizer containing more than 70% alcohol.
