Personal hygiene is the most important factor in the prevention of the spread of the virus. According to the World Health Organisation it is important to wash and disinfect hands regularly. We at Elpress share this opinion, but washing and disinfecting hands does have to be done according to the correct guidelines. The correct sequence for washing and disinfecting hands is as follows: 

  1. Washing Hands

Using an Elpress washbasin you can wash your hands contactlessly. By washing your hands thoroughly for 30 seconds, micro-organisms are rinsed away from the hands.  

  1. Drying Hands

You can dry your hands with paper or a hand dryer. With a hand dryer, you can dry your hands in just 10 seconds.

  1. Disinfecting Hands

When disinfecting hands, micro-organisms on your hands are reduced or killed. You can disinfect your hands contactlessly with a chemical dispenser.
