How to Decrease Flu Outbreaks at the Office

Your teachers told you. Your mother told you. Even the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has told you.

Wash your hands.

Studies have shown that up to 80% of the germs that cause illnesses are spread by hands and the things we touch. That also means that the majority of common illnesses can be prevented simply by washing your hands.

The problem is that soap and water are in the restroom - but, germs are everywhere.

Recently, a study of business offices in several US cities was conducted by the University of Arizona. Surprisingly, microbiologists found bacteria levels on telephones, and desktops to be 400 times greater than the toilet seats in the same offices! (They also found a significant number of germs on water cooler handles, microwave door handles, and computer keyboards.)

As we share common areas with other people, we can't always be sure whose germs we're picking up. The only practical way to protect ourselves is by washing away germs before they can harm us.

TotallyPure hand sanitizer effectively kills 99.99% of the most common germs that may cause illness - and breaks the chain that spreads bacteria from hand to hand. Just put a thumbnail-size amount in your palm and rub your hands together briskly until they're dry (about 15-20 seconds). No rinsing or towels are needed.

Want to win the battle against common illnesses? Wash with hand sanitizer whenever and wherever you need it. In the war against germs, we're on your side!
