Very good price for 500ml sanitiser. But as people stated, this is not helpful for the covid19.

needs to be 60% or more... or 70% or more, depending on who you ask.

When i say who you ask, i dont mean, the scientists, or WHO, or Boris Johnson... I mean the Experts on here who take over every Sanitiser deal arguing who knows best.

But heat for the price per ML

I was about to ask what alcohol percentage it was. I have some 99.9% isopropynol on order and I couldn't make 500ml for anywhere near this price. If it's only 45%, voting cold just for that reason. People don't need false hope that something is protecting them when it completely isn't.

Yes true its very hard to get 500 ml hand sanitiser unless you order from eBay with insane high prices but spotted some small bottles in my local Superdrug sub £3 so possibly check with your local one.
Not much use at 45% ethanol

It's not the volume. It needs to have over 70% alcohol to be effective, and a tiny amount of hydrogen peroxide is a bonus. It wouldn't matter if it was 3 litres for £2, if it's not over 70% alcohol, it's useless for its intended purposes, and companies really pushing the sales of anything lower are completely irresponsible, as from scientific advice, it just won't work.

Not necessarily, too high a % and the alcohol evaporates before it can kill bacteria/viruses. Would most likely need a higher water content to slow evaporation and be effective

Except the scientific advice is 60% and above (with some water mixed in). So it's not really a good price because its not fit for purpose. You'd be better off just washing your hands then using this. How do you see this being used if its not actually effective at sanitising.....

Thank you for repeating what i said... and for being the first expert i talked about This is effective as a sanitizer just not for this purpose. Doesnt mean it isnt effective at all. I never said it was fit for covid19, i actually said the oppersite...

But thanks for wasting a minute of my life replying
As a world reknown bioscientist undertaking a programme of anonymity for my breakthrough work with one of the Korean governments, I thought i would break said cover to end such amateur spoutings and educate the good people commenting that they can double the ethanol content by simply pouring on twice as much. You're all welcome. No likes required.

You're comments we're completely contrary and pointless. It's not fit for purpose full stop. What's the point of using this if it kills one virus and none of the others? It would be stupid to use this. Rather be one of the 'experts' then an ill-informed proving stupid comments

You have no point. And specifically this sanitiser. Other cleansers have a other ingredients that have similar functions. This is completely pointless and a waste of money. The only fool I see here is you. You got preemptively mad at people that may be posting factual information. Shall be blocking you now as I can't deal with your stupidity.

Hydrogen Peroxide is harsh on the hands I believe, you also need moisturizer of some sort in the mix.... 99% rubbing alcohol needs to be mixed with aloe vera gel or something similar. Also, 99% rubbing alcohol if used as a surface spray needs to be mixed with water 70/30 to be effective. 99% alcohol on its own evaporates too fast to be effective as a surface sanitiser.

You will need to mix 99% alcohol with a moisturiser like Aloe vera gel, 70/30 ratio.... also if you use your 99% alcohol surface spray mix it with preferably de-ionised water 70/30... or just tap water as well. 99% alcohol on its own as a surface spray is too strong as it evaporates too fast for this virus apparently. Either way mix your 99% alcohol!

Mate Gloves not exactly rocket science N latex gloves if u need to sign



I don't use gloves to drive my lorry, and can't use them when working the crane remote, so even if wearing gloves then I have to take them off at some point during or after a delivery, which strangely enough means I have to take my gloves off using my HANDS. So at some point My gloved fingers will touch my wrist to take the one glove off and that hand will then touch a glove to take that one off.
So I've potentially transferred the virus to each hand, should I have picked it up on my gloves. That's what my little bottles of 70% Hand Sanitiser is for, but it's close to running out and I cant get anymore that strong from anywhere at the moment.

"Not exactly rocket science"? A little condescending, and a bit stupid too now that I've explained.

We're talking a tiny tiny amount. I haven't noticed any harshness at all.

Mine is 75% isopropanol, 24.7% Vegetable Glycerine, 0.3% Hydrogen Peroxide. I have stacks of vegetable glycerine as I make vape e-liquid. Boots even sell it to use on your skin.
A nice placebo for the present pandemic 99.9% of the population will survive
This is a complete con. It is Medex hand CLEANSER not Medex hand SANITISER. No where on the bottle, the companies website, or anywhere on the internet is there a percentage stated for the claimed Alcohol Denat (spelt denate on the bottle). I would guess that it is less than 10%. Home Bargains should be ashamed to sell this very misleading product.

Again you are quoting the figure for the hand sanitiser not this product which is marketed as a hand cleanser. I have myself searched for the stated alcohol content of the hand cleanser but have failed. It is worth mentioning that the three bottles of sanitiser on the website state they kill 99.9% of germs, but this claim is missing on the hand cleanser. So again I can only conclude this would seem to be a dangerous con of a product with a guestimated 10% alcohol.

They are all the same they brand it under different names! Also if your unhappy with it take it back. Mine has a tone of the 70% carex stuff for £3.49. Surely you should used common sense and checked the label for alcohol content and decided not to buy it when it didn't state it

Different names normally implies different products. Given the cost it was not worth my time taking it back. My common sense made me check the label after I had tried it and could not feel the cooling effect of other alcohol sanitisers, check everywhere for the stated alcohol percentage of cleanser, then conclude that based on the company, price, and lack of any information to the contrary, that this was a much weaker product. Just open a bottle of 40% vodka, smell it, then compare it to this. Or heat some in a spoon and try to light it like the flaming 40% brandy on a christmas pudding.
