Scrub up by spray if waters scarce

DISINFECT your hands without water using the new aerosol spray Handscrub, claims supplier Rolith.

Its disinfecting gel claims to remove light pollution and to evaporate on the skin making it easy and non-messy to use.

Handscrub could be useful in fields, barns, or hillsides where it may be difficult to scrub up such as at lambing time. It is effective against many bacteria including E coli, Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella typhimurium, says Rolith.

The product is said to be delivered by pressurised air and is water-soluble and biodegradeable making it eco-friendly.

Each 200ml Handscrub costs £2.56, available in boxes of 12, (01273-571221).
