Overall, consumers are exposed to a variety of settings and potentially “high risk” situations inside and outside of the home that increase the risk of exposure or transmission of germs that may cause illness and disease. Examples of typical “high risk” situations or settings that potentially increase one’s chance of acquiring disease or illness from the transmission of bacteria on the skin include: changing diapers; caring for sick, elderly or invalid family members; preparing family meals; having contact with pets; handshaking; gardening and performing yard work; attending daycare, school or work; visiting restaurants and public eating establishments; using public restrooms and toilets; visiting offices of physicians, dentists and other health care providers; sharing objects such as telephones, exercise equipment and money; and traveling.
The truth of the matter is that sometimes plain soap and water is not good enough. Having a product available that is specially formulated to reduce the number of potentially harmful bacteria on the hands and thus reduce the potential for transmission or acquisition of disease more effectively than plain soap should be considered as being a right for protecting oneself of illness and disease. Why give up the chance to protect yourself?
