Those allergic to ethanol
Can be used many times a day, ethanol overuse is not a good idea.
Is a liquid , can be used on all surfaces and door knobs , rails
handy 5 litre size to share around
- •A benzalkonium hand sanitizer significantly reduced S. aureusversus an ethanol sanitizer.
- •The effectiveness of the benzalkonium chloride may be due to its skin persistence.
