Buy a bottle of hand sanitiser

It is always a great idea to keep a bottle of hand sanitiser close by, whether it is in your desk drawer at work, in your handbag, on the kitchen counter or even in your car. It can help to give your hands a relatively good cleanse especially if there are no washing facilities in your vicinity.  Use a generous amount to help give both your hands a good cleanse and perhaps even make them smell nice too.
