With so many santisers and disinfectants available in the market, it is hard to know what makes one more effective than the other.

To make matters worse, there are still many people out there who don’t understand the difference between bacteria and viruses and think an anti-bacterial cleaner is sufficient to keep them safe. It’s not, by the way, just saying.

After much research and testing, Singaporean company Sureclean created a hand sanitizer and surface disinfectant that is alcohol free, highly effective against bacteria and viruses, yet gentle on the hands and nose and I got to test run both items. 

SANIHANDS Alcohol-Free Foamy Sanitizer Keeps Your Hands Germ-Free For Up To Three hours

Studies have shown that without concious thought, we touch our faces up to 23 times an hour. I am sure this number has gone up since wearing a mask became mandatory, as I for one seem to be constantly itching or touching my face since then.

Anyway, my point is that most people do not wash their hands with soap and water as often as they should. In fact, when I was in Orchard this afternoon, one of the women in the public toilet at the same time as me, did not wash her hands after doing her business. Instead she just walked out, contaminating the door handle and everything else she came into contact with, with her germy hands.

Because some people have questionable personal hygiene, it is crucial, especially at this time, to have a sanitizer that you trust. SANIHANDS foamy hand sanitiser is alcohol-free and gentle on the skin.

Unlike most alcohol based sanitizers which can dry the users’ hands, SANIHANDS cleansing foam leaves your hands feeling softer and fragrant after each use. It is also able to protect you for up to three hours continuously after application while eliminating up to 99.99% disease-causing germs. This is great news for those of us who constantly fiddle with our face.

The SANIHANDS foamy sanitizer is available at $38.70 for a bundle of three 50ml bottles, and $68.70 for a bundle of three 180ml bottles.

Keep Surfaces Disinfected For Up To 30 Days

Since COVID-19 spread across the world, I have been disinfecting my door knob and other frequently touched surfaces like a crazy person with isopropyl alcohol, every time I touched it with hands contaminated by the ‘outside’. Now before you label me a lunatic, the WHO reported that SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) can survive on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days, so constant cleaning is required if the item is frequently touched. 

Thank goodness I was sent a bottle of GERMCLEAN to test run as I was seriously getting tired with how dry and inflamed the skin on my hands had gotten with my overzealous cleaning regimen.

GERMCLEAN is a surface disinfectant that uses ionic silver as an active ingredient to protect surfaces for up to 30 days against 99.99% of germs, bacteria, and viruses. I am a huge fan of silver infused cleaning materials as it is safe, highly effective and much kinder to your hands and skin and to prove how big a fan I am of silver, I also have a box of colloidal silver dressing in my first aid kit.

This cleaner is perfect for frequently touched surfaces like door handles, furniture, laptops, light switches, remote controls, mobile phones, and even your kid’s toys, high chairs, cribs, changing tables etc.

The cleaner has a mild and pleasant scent, does not leave any residue or streaks and gives me a sense of security, which during this very uncertain period, I am most grateful for.

GERMCLEAN surface disinfectant is available at $38.70 for a bundle of three 60ml bottles, and $68.70 for a bundle of three 250ml bottles. Sureclean products are available for sale here.
