Use shampoo sparingly


Use shampoo sparingly
Your hair won’t get any cleaner from using a palmful of product versus a dime-size amount, and washing every other day is healthier than shampooing daily.

Alcohol-based Hand Washing


Hand-washing has become a very essential part in avoiding getting the H1N1 flue.

I remember years ago when I was in the nursing profession. Actually I was not in it for long as I found out rather quickly I was not a naturally dedicated nurse.

Anyway back to the hand-washing subject. It was drummed into us in those days, that after every procedure we had to wash our hands. I mean after making a bed we had to wash our hands before and after we had contact with a patient our hands had to be washed. I used to think it was crazy, that they went overboard with all this cleanliness and were eccentric.

Another procedure we had to do was before we went in to a ward we had to change into a clean uniform, then change back out of it once our duty time was finished and we left the ward. So to cut a long story short hygiene was a priority.

Now I realize why and it is probably the reason we have so many viruses floating around. So I thought you may find this article of some interest.

Hand Cleansing With Alcohol-based Cleansers

Oct 20, 2009

Hand washing is an excellent way to prevent infections, but when soap and water are not available alcohol-based hand cleansers are a good alternative.

Hand cleanliness is a vital part of maintaining health and avoiding infections. The best way to keep hands clean is to regularly wash them with warm water and soap but there are times when this is not possible.

In these circumstances, when soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand cleansers are the next best solution.

The good thing about alcohol-based hand cleansers is that water is not needed to use them. But for effective cleansing the product should contain at least 60 percent alcohol.
