Disinfecting hand gel

Disinfectant hand gel

This hand gel is made on the basis of WHO (World Heath Organization) regulations

Contains extra hand cream to protect against dehydration.

The hands are our main tools: they are constantly on the move. However, care and disinfection are often forgotten. No water nearby? Or do you need a specific remedy to remove bacteria? Then disinfecting hand gels are in order. Disinfection is crucial as it helps prevent the spread of harmful microorganisms. These can, for example, cause a cold or flu. Disinfectant hand gels allow to kill, inactivate or remove microorganisms. Since you usually can’t walk to a sink every half hour, it’s best to keep a disinfectant hand gel nearby. Handy for in your bag, next to your computer or in the kitchen.


It probably comes as no surprise that an old-fashioned bar of soap is a breeding ground for bacteria. Liquid soap, preferably from a pump, is preferred. Hand alcohol wins in hospitals. It is faster, more efficient and more user-friendly. In a domestic context, ordinary soap will do. Disinfecting gels not only kill pathogens, but also bacteria that are important for our health. In addition, the gels can lead to resistance development. Not only for the relevant products, but also for medication such as antibiotics. You can always buy hand hygiene via our webshop.


  • Moisten hands with water and take a sufficient amount of liquid soap.
  • Rub the palms together.
  • Rub the right palm over the left back of the hand and vice versa.
  • Rub the right palm against the left palm with the fingers of both hands between each other.
  • Bring the back of the fingers into the other palm and rub the fingers back and forth against this palm.
  • Rub the thumb of each hand with the palm of the other hand.
  • Rub the fingertips of each hand in the palm of the other hand in a twisting manner.
  • Rinse hands well to remove all soap residue.
  • Pat hands dry with a disposable towel.
  • Close the faucet with the towel so that your hands don’t get re-contaminated with microbes on the faucet.


Hand hygiene consists of hand cleaning or hand disinfection. Combining these two techniques is not recommended because of the great burden on the skin.

Hand cleaning is the removal of dirt and temporary flora on the hands. To do this, wash your hands with water and liquid soap as described in the step-by-step plan for hand cleaning with soap.

Hand disinfection is the reduction of temporary and permanent flora on the hands. To do this, rub the hands for 30 seconds with hand alcohol as described in the hand disinfection step-by-step plan.


  • Some generic preconditions apply to delegated acts and working agreements.  
  • Hand hygiene is part of personal hygiene. In order to effectively prevent transmission of infections via the hands, you must also perform other parts of personal hygiene correctly. Specifically, the following recommendations apply:
  • Do not wear jewelry / accessories on hands and forearms such as rings, wristwatches, bracelets and braces while performing procedures that break through skin or mucous membranes or during obstetric procedures. At most, wear a wristwatch during other work if this is necessary for diagnostic purposes.
  • Keep nails trimmed short and clean.
  • Do not wear nail polish, artificial or gel nails.
  • Cover open wounds or skin damage on your hands with a non-permeable plaster and wear gloves if necessary.
  • Only use multimedia devices during patient-related activities after hand hygiene has been applied. Keep multimedia devices out of ‘dirty areas or surfaces’.
  • Apply hand hygiene immediately after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose and/or visiting the toilet.
  • Only use hand disinfectants that comply with NEN standard 1500 and that have been approved by the Ctbg (Board for the Authorization of Plant Protection Products and Biocides) or by the MEB (Medicine Evaluation Board). Products authorized by the Ctbg can be recognized by an N code (4 to 5 digits followed by ‘N’, for example: 12345 N) or NL number, for example NL-1234567(-0000). Products approved by the MEB can be recognized by an RVG number. See appendix Detergents and disinfectants for more information about requirements for disinfectants.


  • Washbasin
  • Crane that can preferably be operated automatically, with the elbow or with the foot.

Soap and alcohol dispensers with a disposable reservoir (only the empty reservoir is replaced) or dispensers that are completely disposable. Preferably use a version that can be operated with the elbow or forearm. The dispensers must be constructed in such a way that contact between hand and nozzle is prevented. Use user-friendly hand alcohol to which re-greasing ingredients have been added.

  • Disposable paper towels
  • Pedal bin or open waste bin for used paper towels. You only
    use an open waste bin for hand towels and not for other materials, such as used gloves, bandages, etc.
  • Lotions or creams in small tubes (for personal use only) or from dispensers with disposable containers that do not refill.

Hand cleaning step-by-step plan

Apply hand hygiene at the following five times:
  • Prior to physical patient contact.
  • Prior to a clean or aseptic procedure.
  • After (possible) contact with bodily materials and fluids.
  • After physical patient contact.
  • After physical contact with the patient’s environment.



Choice of hand cleaning or hand disinfection

  • In principle, do not apply double hand hygiene, i.e. hand cleaning and hand disinfection immediately after each other, as this puts too much stress on the skin.
  • An exception applies if there is an indication for hand cleaning (visible contamination or contact with body fluids) and an indication for hand disinfection (clean or aseptic handling).
  • In any case, always apply hand disinfection prior to clean or aseptic actions. Continue at step 9.
  • Apply hand cleaning in the following cases:
  • If hands are visibly soiled.
  • After contact with body fluids, secretions, excreta, mucous membranes or non-intact skin (of both the patient and yourself), so also after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing and going to the toilet.
  • After contact with patients with diarrhea and (suspected) infection with Norovirus or Clostridium difficile[1]. 
    • In all other situations where hand hygiene is indicated , preferably use hand disinfection because this puts less stress on the skin.
