Alcohol Based Hand Sanitiser

Alcohol-based hand sanitiser is great for killing germs but can be dangerous if swallowed, particularly for children.

Follow these safety tips:

store hand sanitiser products safely and out of reach of children

supervise any use by young children

be aware of imported products which may not be clearly labelled and may contain more toxic alcohols such as methanol that make the product more dangerous

if you suspect a child has ingested hand sanitiser, regardless of the quantity, call the 24 hour Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 for first aid and monitoring advice.

Have the container of the ingested product with you.

Remember, washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is a safe and effective option.
