Hand washing is very important especially before we eat. We can avoid such bacteria causing sickness and diseases by keeping our hands clean. As a mom, I always make sure to it that my hands are clean when I am preparing food and serving food for my family. Our family’s health is at risk when we do not keep our hands clean so even outdoors, restaurants and any public areas, my family and I keep our hands clean by hand washing or if water is not available, we use hand sanitizer.
During the month of October, Global Hand washing is celebrated..In support of this, Safeguard launched the Safeguard Soap Alarm, a soap dispenser created to alert people of the importance of hand washing after using public toilets.
Forgetting to wash your hands after using a public toilet is indeed very alarming as they contain an estimated 3.2 million germs per square inch. And these germs can cause serious diseases like hepatitis or diarrhea.
To encourage public toilet users to wash their hands with Safeguard, the Soap Alarm was mounted in a fast food chain (McDonald’s SM Marikina). And for the duration of its run, more than 9,000 customers were alarmed.
The Soap Alarm worked this way:
- A person enters the toilet, locks the door, and does his business.
- As he unlocks the door to step out, he triggers the Soap Alarm.
- To stop the alarm, he dispenses Safeguard Anti-bacterial Hand Soap onto his hands.
- Above the soap alarm is a warning and hand washing instruction guide that he can follow.

The Soap Alarm caught the attention of moms, dads, kids, students and barkadas – prompting them to wash their hands immediately with Safeguard not only to stop the alarm but, more importantly, to stop the spread of germs.
I support the Global Hand washing and also Safeguard soap alarm. I believe that this alarm will be very effective to people in keeping their hands clean and avoiding the germs or bacteria from spreading especially before eating.
Safeguard has been proven effective in removing skin germs that may cause skin infection and the soap has been proven in removing perspiration odor. They have different products that we can greatly consider in keeping our hands and body clean and healthy. Some of the soap bar variants are cool menthol, Floral Pink, and Fresh Green. They have the Pure White body wash that I truly like when I use it; For hand washing – you may use Safeguard Antibacterial Handwash in Pure White or Lemon Fresh scent. If water is not available for handwash or for a quick hand sanitizing, you may use the Safeguard Hand Sanitizer with Vitamin E.
