5 Reasons to Switch to Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer

The healthcare industry has an alcohol problem.

When hand sanitizers gained popularity in the 1990s, alcohol bases were the norm. The big question was, “do they work?” not “what’s in them?”

Fast-forward to 2015. We know hand sanitizers are usually an acceptable substitute for soap and water. We’re more knowledgeable about hygiene. Technology has improved. Hand sanitizers have evolved – no longer are we limited to ethyl or isopropyl alcohol bases.

This should be cause for celebration considering the toxicity and flammability and of alcohol-based hand sanitizers. With alcohol-free hand sanitizers, the chances of consumption and the scrutiny by local fire authorities are both diminished.

Despite these benefits, the industry as a whole is reluctant to make the change. Often this is attributed to a lack of field evidence.

The history and pervasiveness of alcohol-based hand sanitizers in healthcare facilities doesn’t change the fact that alcohol-free hand sanitizers are a safer, superior alternative.

Here are five reasons to switch to Kleenhanz, alcohol-free hand sanitizing wipes that use a unique, advanced formula proven effective against MRSA, VRE, and other gram negative bacteria.

They actually clean: Kleenhanz wipes remove dirt and germs. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers smear and do not clean. They should really only be used on hands that are already free of visible soil. That’s kind of a big deal.

They keep working: Kleenhanz’ unique formula creates a physical barrier on your hands, providing germ protection long after you’ve thrown the wipe away. Once an alcohol-based hand sanitizer dries, its germ-killing agents cease operation. Go for the hand sanitizer that goes the extra mile.

They are non-flammable and non-toxic: Kleenhanz uses a 99% water-based formula that’s non-flammable and non-toxic. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers use a highly-flammable, toxic drying agent. Their abuse, especially by teens, has been well publicized.

They are gentler: While alcohol-based hand sanitizer can irritate cuts and scrapes, Kleenhanz is easier on wounds. This isn’t just more desirable from a comfort standpoint, but also from a hygienic one. Workers are more likely to avoid cleaning injured areas if it’s painful to do so.

They leave hands feeling soft and smooth: Excessive use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers dries out skin, leading to cracking and infection susceptibility. Kleenhanz effectively sanitizes without beating up your hands. Don’t your hands deserve to be treated nicely considering all they do for you?
