Hand washing has been a recurring theme, especially since the Corona pandemic. “How do I wash my hands properly? For how long? How often?” were the questions asked throughout, and the answers were immediately forthcoming in many places. But how do I do this in combination with disinfectants?
How does perfect interaction work?
All over the nation, hospitals, restaurants, and retail establishments have disinfectant dispensers. If you look at the current increase in Corona infections, they will again be urgently needed in the fall and winter. However, how can hand washing and disinfection be combined, given that the handling is also sufficiently understood here?
Should hands be cleaned and then disinfected, or should they be cleaned first and then disinfected? ‘The pharmacist’ on ‘X’ finally clarifies:
“Wash and disinfect hands. When you wash your hands, water is deposited in the horny layer of the skin. If you then disinfect them, the water dilutes the disinfectant in the horny layer, which means it no longer works properly. Disinfect and wash hands If you disinfect your hands, you dissolve the skin oils, which can be washed off your hands even better by washing them afterwards than if you had just washed your hands.” – ThePharmacist ????
One must decide
One must decide because while one begins hand washing, water deposits in the cornea dilute the disinfectant, and one damages the skin with the starting disinfection of the hands and following hand washing. Regular care of the hands can, in any case, not hurt in these hectic times.
