Keeping your hands clean out and about

Eating a burgerYou can’t always find warm water and soap when you’re out and about so Carex Hand Gel and Hand Wipes are a great alternative, when your hands aren't visibly dirty. They fit neatly into your handbag or pocket and are great quick fix when you’re camping, on the bus, at the theme park and generally living life hands on.

There’s no substitute for a proper soap and warm water wash though, so as soon as you’re home don’t forget to give your hands the clean and care they need.

  • "Our hands carry a mixture of both good and bad bacteria"

  • "Most of the bacteria our hands pick up live on fingertips and under our nails"

  • "Washing with water alone doesn't guarantee that bad bacteria are removed"

  • "Good bacteria act as our personal shield against unwanted bacteria"

  • "Many bacteria can survive on surfaces for several months"

  • "The skin has its own natural defences against bad bacteria"
