Schools and Care Homes

There is a widespread misunderstanding that only alcohol-based hand sanitisers can be used, even though these are flammable, can be poisonous if swallowed, can cause eye irritation, are unacceptable to some faiths and can cause skin irritation.

Trusted alternatives to alcohol-based hand sanitisers are available, as used by Boots the Chemist, Rentokil Initial plc and the NHS.
