Waterless Hand Soap

 Waterless Hand Soap (WHS) works better than other sanitizers. It's a simple fact.

I had a small spray bottle of this soap in my purse for many years. I would use it on the road, especially at festivals. It was great to be able to wash my hands at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival or The FingerLakes GrassRoots Festival before eating, after using the bathroom porta-pottie, etc., or at an Expo, when I wanted to clean my hands but it wasn't a good time to leave my booth.

When covid-19 hit, I still used it the same as always, except this time at the grocery store, and to wash my groceries before putting them in my reusable shopping bags. I no longer take the bags in the store. Instead, I leave them in my car and bring the shopping cart out there. Give each item a spray, LEAVE the WHS on the item, and load my bags. 

I never leave home without my Waterless Hand Soap. I know, I'm a little nuts, but it works!

Soap and water is best

This alcohol-free formula offers proactive security, making it the safest and most effective at destabilizing germs, viruses and bacteria, without also destabilizing your health. Its' gentle formulation also leaves your fabrics or surfaces intact, making it the best choice for a surface cleanser and fabric spot cleaner as well. 

Waterless Hand Soap cleans everything

Waterless Hand Soap has multiple uses for daily cleaning chores:

  1. for the chicken coop cleaning 
  2. cat litter box cleaning
  3. garden tool basket for hand washing
  4. office cleaning, including computer, phones, devices, printers, desktop
  5. in the car for windows, car interior, and exterior, and grocery wash
  6. in the kitchen as a veggie wash
  7. in the bathroom for cleaning all fixtures
  8. house cleaning, including windows and floors
  9. in my purse or pocket for hand washing on the go, before eating, and in public restrooms

More than waterless hand soap

WHS is a streak free surface cleaner, eliminating the airborne toxins which result from repeated surface cleaning with chemically based household cleaners. Use WHS on produce, windows, countertops, bathrooms fixtures, all floor surfaces and coverings including rugs, computer screens and keyboards applied with a cloth, phones, vinyl, etc. I even wash the car windows, mirrors inside and out and the car interior. It works beautifully.

Spray on a damp cloth or paper towel (I prefer linen scraps from my dye studio) to clean surfaces. The cloth picks up dirt, germs, and grime. Rinse in water and continue cleaning.

State of the Art Report, Liquid Hand Soaps & the Covid-19 Virus

5/30/20 by Andrew Turco

U.S. consumers have been given a mixed message as to the best remedy for the daily prevention of the spread of the Covid-19 virus, as it relates to hand cleaning.  At present, there are three options upon which no final judgement or recommendation has been made: 1) Alcohol based hand sanitizer, 2) non-alcohol based hand sanitizer, and 3) frequent hand washing with any commercially available liquid, bar or foam soap. Read more about why hand soap vs. hand sanitizer is the smart choice, from the CDC here.

. This article concludes that “Soap and water are more effective than hand sanitizers at removing certain kinds of germs, like Cryptospridium, norovirus, and Clostridium difficile. “Another telling statement: “If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.”

Safety warnings for isopropyl alcohol: Isopropyl alcohol vapor is denser than air and is flammable, with a flammability range of between 2 and 12.7% in air. It should be kept away from heat and open flame. Distillation if isopropyl alcohol over magnesium has been reported to form peroxides, which may explode upon concentration. Isopropyl is a skin irritant. Wearing protective gloves is recommended. Read about rubbing alcohol on wikipedia more

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $3.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.43 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.

Good soap is cost effective. More
