The GlitterBuddy kit can be used to show staff how well they do wash their hands.
The kit is made of durable paper-board and folds down to a compact box that contains all the items of the kit for convenient transport and storage.
When unfolded, the ‘scary germy face’ invites users to look through his mouth to see his ‘devilish pals’ on their hands.
Black light illumination is provided by the SpotShooter 8, which shows all the ‘GlitterBugs’ ‘hiding’ on hands.
The kit contains the GlitterBug Potion, which is dispensed onto hands from the metered pump pack. Users rub this into their hands as they would a hand cream. Under the UV light, the GlitterBug will make hands shine.
Users wash their hands as they would normally and dry them. They can then take another look under the UV light to check how effective their handwashing is. If they see any areas glow, such as around nails, in the cracks or around the back of hands, then it means they were not washed correctly. Staff will know instantly how thoroughly they washed their hands and how possible contamination could occur.
Also, with the increasing use of waterless antimicrobial handwashing gels, GlitterBug can be used to show staff how well they are spreading the gels and sanitising their hands.
