We do not want to use a sanitiser containing alcohol, are there any alternatives?


For a hand sanitiser to be effective it must contain at least 60% alcohol. However, washing hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (or while singing happy birthday twice) has been shown to be just as effective.

Hands should be washed regularly in particular before eating, after visiting the bathroom and when entering/exiting premises or transportation. Please see further information in FAQ 4.
