Welcome to this clever collection of ingenious tips that harness the amazing power of an everyday necessity like MedPPE’s Hand Sanitizer Gel:

  1. Don’t risk using an unclean public WC, wipe down the toilet seat first. Before you sit down on a public toilet seat, squirt some hand sanitizer on a wad of toilet paper and wipe down the surface. It will air dry very quickly and help to keep you safe and protected.
  2. Eliminate fingerprints on your refrigerator and other stainless-steel appliances. Fingerprints can ruin the look of your stainless-steel appliances, but buying special stainless-steel cleaner is very expensive. Just reach for your trusty bottle of hand sanitizer gel. Put a dab on a cloth, the gel will remove fingerprints, spattered oil, and other grease marks.
  3. Clean your computer keyboard and mouse. Did you realize that your keyboard can be just as dirty as a toilet seat? It is estimated that there are 20,000 microbes per square inch on the average work desk and that doesn’t even count your keyboard or mouse. In a study 43,000 people from 351 office buildings reported that office cleanliness was linked to job satisfaction. To address the keyboard problem, keep your hands clean, and wipe your keyboard with hand sanitizer on a cloth—preferably microfiber. Be sure to unplug it or turn it off first. Your computer mouse can be every bit as grimy as your keyboard. Again, give it a little wipe down with a microfiber cloth and hand sanitizer. If you use a touchpad, give it the same treatment—just always remember to shut everything down first.
  4. Remove nail polish. If you’ve run short on nail polish but need to quickly remove chipped or faded nail polish, use a little hand sanitizer gel on your nails. Apply some and let it penetrate the polish for about a minute or so. Use a cotton pad or tissue to wipe away the unsightly polish and then repeat until your nails are clean.
  5. Clean every touchscreen. It’s called a “touchscreen” for a reason. It indicates that it needs cleaning from time to time. The best way to do it, according to PC Tablet, is to squirt some hand sanitizer on a microfiber cloth and wipe the screen gently. 
  6. Take the “ouch” out of removing a band-aid. Instead of ripping off an adhesive bandage, dab a little hand sanitizer on top of the sticky ends to release the adhesive. Wait a few minutes, and then painlessly remove the strip. Bliss!
  7. Remove sticky labels effortlessly. Just like hairspray, adhesive residue is tough to remove with just soap and water. Whether you’re removing adhesive residue from your skin, furniture, wall, new dishes, or a handbag, hand sanitizer will make the job easier.
  8. Clean hairspray off a mirror. When you’re spritzing with hairspray every morning, it’s easy to get some on the bathroom mirror. Wiping it off a mirror takes a little elbow grease—but it’s easier to remove with some hand sanitizer. Put a little gel on a microfiber cloth or paper towel, wipe thoroughly, and your mirror will gleam again—without streaks.
  9. Pre-treat stains before laundering. Even the manufacturers of Tide laundry detergent acknowledge that a bit of hand sanitizer can effectively pre-treat stains on clothing. Rub a bit into the stain, let it sit for a couple of minutes, blot, then apply Tide—then wash as directed on the garment’s label. 
  10. Keep your makeup brushes clean and bacteria-free. Terrible things could happen to your skin if you don’t keep make-up brushes and other make-up tools clean. Uncleaned brushes are known to cause breakouts—which are bad enough but can also lead to scarring. Get your makeup brushes extra clean by rubbing them with hand sanitizer after you wash them; then, allow them to air dry fully. 
  11. Clean your hair-styling flat iron. Is your flat iron coated in hair-spray residue? If you haven’t cleaned its surface in a while, time to grab your hand sanitizer gel. The flat iron might not only be coated with hair products but bacteria could be present. After the iron cools down, wipe on some hand sanitizer gel, wait a few minutes, and then wipe it clean.
  12. Makes a quick dry shampoo. Woke up with greasy hair and don’t have time for a wash and blow-dry? Try some hand sanitizer! Squeeze a little bit onto your fingertips and massage lightly into your roots. You’ll be amazed at how great your hair will look.
  13. Clear up pimples and bug bites. Acne inflammation is caused in part by bacteria on your skin. You can say “good-bye” to pimples when you dab a little bit of hand sanitizer on the infected area. You can feel the relief fast. You can also dap a little hand sanitizer gel on bug bites, too! It works quickly to provide relief from the itch and bring down inflammation.
  14. Clean your eyeglasses. You could spend a bundle buying specially-designated eyeglass cleaning fluids, but why not reach for your bottle of hand sanitizer instead?  It can eliminate smudges, dirt, grime and fingerprints from your eyeglasses in seconds.
  15. Polish silver. Hand sanitizer cuts right through tarnish on silver. Squirt a few drops on a soft cloth and rub away the tarnish.
