Frequently washing hands with soap and water is the best way to keep germs at bay and reduce transmission of a range of illnesses.
But realistically, you won’t have access to soap and water all the time so hand sanitiser is your best bet for on-the-go cleaning.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, there has been a mad dash for hand sanitisers. You might want to check these out and carry one in your bag.
