Illness comes in from the mouth, especially in this sensitive period, we must wash our hands and disinfect frequently every day, so as to keep away from the invasion of many viruses. Disposable hand sanitizers are relatively convenient, they will volatilize and dry by themselves, and most of them contain alcohol that can be disinfected. But hand-washing products also have an expiration date, so you must use them within the expiration date, and try not to use them after the expiration date.
Can the hand sanitizer expire and disinfect other items?
It is best not to use it after it has expired, because the active ingredients of the expired hand sanitizer will lose its activity, affecting the effect of antibacterial and sterilization, so the disinfection effect is far less than before, and the cleaning effect is greatly reduced. Moreover, if the expired hand sanitizer is left for a long time, it may breed bacteria, and there will be deterioration such as odor and air bubbles, which will bring bacteria into the skin after use. If it is absolutely necessary, it is recommended to choose other cleaning products.
What's the use of expired hand sanitizer?
Range hoods and gas ranges: Pour some hand sanitizer on range hoods and gas ranges, then wipe directly with a rag dipped in water, and you'll find that the oil is removed immediately.
Countertop: Pour some hand sanitizer on the countertop, then scrub directly with another cloth dipped in water.
Bathroom Tiles: Bathroom tiles are usually moldy and dirty and can be used. Wet the tile first, then pour some hand sanitizer on the tile and scrub with a regular brush.
Basin: Pour some hand sanitizer over the basin, then scrub with a little water and a regular brush.
Toilet: Pour some hand sanitizer on the toilet lid, seat, and inside the toilet. Toilet lids and toilet bowls can be cleaned with a small amount of water and an ordinary brush.
How to choose hand washing products
1. See if there is a "Wei Consumer Certificate". There are two types of hand sanitizers on the market: "Wei Xiao Zheng Zi" and "Wei Zhuang Quan Zi". "Wei Xiao Zheng Zi" belongs to the category of disinfection. Why is it fair? It mainly focuses on sterilization and bacteriostasis, and has better disinfection effects.
2. When buying hand sanitizer, pay attention to the packaging. It is best to choose "alcohol content of 75% ± 5%". If it is not too high, the effect will not be good. Also, alcohol can catch fire in a fire. Keep away from high temperature and open flames during storage.
After using this type of hand sanitizer, do not immediately approach open flames, such as lighting mosquito coils, smoking and stoves with open flames, to avoid accidents.
3. It is best to choose independent packaging. If it is not independent packaging, then there must be a sealing sticker and a sealing cover, and cover it in time after extraction.
