With flu season already gearing up and all kids being back in school, an article on some of the best hand sanitizers is definitely a must. Many types of surfaces can breed some of the nastiest germs out there, germs that may lead to a serious illness. Kids are especially vulnerable to germs because they go to school with hundreds of other kids and share many objects. Kids should be taught how to use hand sanitizers and be told when to use them. When children gain this knowledge their chances of getting sick decrease significantly. Here are some kid friendly alcohol-free hand sanitizers that may be of interest to consumers:
1. Germ-X Advanced Protection No Mess Hand Sanitizer (7 ounces)
I have used Germ-X hand sanitizer now for the last couple of years and it is pretty good. I have not used the alcohol free brand, but now that I know that they have it, I may just try it. I do like Germ-X because it makes my hands really soft and it smells pleasant.
What is nice about the alcohol-free version is that it is nonflammable and it does not sting cuts. When I have used the alcohol version, it has burned my cuts a little. I am willing to try something that does not burn. The alcohol-free hand sanitizer idea kind of goes along with the alcohol free mouthwash idea.
This alcohol-free sanitizer is sold at many stores including Wal-Mart and Walgreens. Call your nearest store for information on prices.
2. Hands2GO Instant Hand Sanitizer
This hand sanitizer is alcohol-free and kills 99.9% of germs including ones that cause the MRSA superbug. It is gentle on the hands according to the website, it sells for $3.99. I have yet to try this product, but it sounds promising. This product contains the ingredient known as Benzalkonium chloride which is a salt. It has been used by doctors to sanitize for many years.
3. Gentle Care Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizer Foam
This product is 7.1 oz and it kills 99.9% of germs. It is great for use in public places but like all hand sanitizers, it should not always be used in place of hand washing. It sells for $6.95. The 1.7 oz bottle sells for just under $4.00. Visit the Home Health Delivery Web site for ordering and more information.
4. Avant Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer
This sanitizer is different from the other sanitizers discussed so far. How is that? The other sanitizers previously discussed contain Benzalkonium chloride which is an ammonium compound. According to Schoolhealth.com, it is a completely bio-based hand sanitizer. Like the others, it kills 99.9% of germs. An 18 oz pump sells for a little over $8.00. Visit the School Health website to order this product.
5. X3 Clean Alcohol Free Foaming Sanitizer
This sanitizer provides the same benefits of the other hand sanitizers because it uses the same ingredient known as Benzalkonium chloride to kill germs.
