GlitterBug: Training Gel for Teaching and Testing Hand Sanitizer Application Technique:
Hand-washing is one of the most important yet overlooked areas of food safety and sanitation. What's more, hand sanitizer can only kill germs it comes in contact with, so proper application technique is crucial.
GlitterBug Gel is a simple yet powerful way to put sanitation your hands properly in visual context. It allows you to see not just where your hands have been cleaned, but where they are not. By appling Glitterbug to your hands and then shining a UV light on them, any areas missed will light up instantly. Areas that have not been covered in Gel (i.e sanitized) - such as cuticles and the webbing between fingers won't fluroesce from the GlitterBug Gel, showing what areas could potentially harbour germs and cause contamination later on.
GlitterBug Gel builds healthy habits and is an effective reminder of how important technique is when cleaning and sanitising hands.
