Daily Challenge Saturday Oct. 30, 2010
Slip a small bottle of liquid hand sanitizer in your purse, car or desk drawer.
How to do it
You can find travel-size bottles of hand sanitizer (as small as half an ounce) in nearly all grocery and convenience stores. Pick up at least one for your purse, backpack, briefcase, car or office. Be sure the product contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Carrying it with you ensures that you have a way to clean your hands no matter where you are.
Why it matters
Handwashing is one of the best ways to keep yourself safe from germs that can make you sick. When you're on the go and soap and water aren't readily available, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, which don't require water, are the next best way to destroy germs on your hands.
The ancient Greeks and then the Romans washed themselves with olive oil and sand followed by a rubdown with salves prepared from herbs.
Done! It was already there!
My best friend's eight-year-old daughter is severely immunocompromised, so I've got hand sanitizer EVERYWHERE anyway.
Somehow, though, this email didn't get to me. Oh well, so much for a streak.
This is one of those things where I have it in my desk at work, but I just forget to use it. I really need to remember more. Maybe it can help hold off some of the winter colds I get.
I have a ton of it at work. They keep passing it out. Perhaps they are trying to tell me something. I wash my hands all the time through out the day which is the method I prefer
I've been doing this for months!! It's nice to have a way to clean your hands when there isn't a soap & sink.
I have big bottles next to my computer at home and at work, but one for my purse with a nice tightly sealing cap would be useful too. Next time I shop, I'll do that - it's now on the list!
I keep one in my purse and in my desk at work.
I never received yesterday's challenge and now my streak is broken. It shouldn't matter, but it does to me. harumph.

I'm a teacher and my hands are always being washed, I carry sanitizer everywhere.
