Hand cleaners are chemical solutions o formulated to remove stubborn dirt, oil, grease, and grime from worker’s hands. These industrial pumice soaps have surfactants that attract water-insoluble substances, thereby removing dirt from hands while washing with water. Industrial hand cleaners may be formulated for better efficacy depending on the work environment and gentleness to skin. Hand sanitizers are viscous alcohol-based gels formulated to eradicate germs and bacteria without rinsing with water. Sanitizers are commonly used as a quick alternative when hand soaps are not available. However, hand sanitizers are recommended to be applied after washing with hand cleaners to ensure cleanliness and disinfection.
