Alternative to Alcohol Wipes

Dr Nick Shanks from the Alford Medical Practice has been in touch with some important news for the whole community.  Please share this post.

  1. If you run out of alcohol wipes you can use a diluted bleach solution for an alternative hand wash.

Dilute 1ml of bleach in 99 ml of water ie 1%.

This can be used as a hand wash and hard surface wash. Remember it does damage some materials. Also it is a bit harder on your hands so only use if you have no alcohol wipes for hands. I would use it on all surfaces so long as it does not destroy them.

  1. YOU SHOULD WASH ALL FRUIT AND VEG THROUGHLY. Any hot food should be hot and any cold food should be cold and have been kept cold as instructed.
