Whenever someone in your household has a cold or flu, it’s definitely prudent to use a good, liquid antimicrobial soap as a topical disinfectant whenever you wash your hands, and then add an antimicrobial gel to your hands after washing them, for added protection throughout the day.
Why? Because as the experts are constantly pointing out, hand-to-hand spread of viruses and germs are the most common route of infection. So washing with liquid antimicrobial soap, and afterwards adding a good antimicrobial gel to your hands will give you some serious protection when you’re around anyone who is sickly.
Get a Liquid Disinfectant Soap in a Pump Dispenser Bottle and Add Colloidal Silver
I like to purchase liquid antimicrobial soaps that come in a pump dispenser bottle, because you can easily remove the lid, add an ounce or two colloidal silver (about two tablespoons per each four ounces of soap), then put the lid back on and shake it well until the colloidal silver is thoroughly mixed into the soap. This adds some serious all-natural antimicrobial fire-power to your disinfectant soap.
Commercial Topical Gels with Colloidal Silver
There are also some great topical antimicrobial gels available commercially, including some that contain colloidal silver. In other words, they have silver particles in the gel itself, so when you rub the gel onto your hands, you have the added protection of silver for hours on end to help stop viruses and bacteria from living on your hands and being spread by touch to your eyes, ears, nose or mouth.
In short, by using a good silver-based topical disinfectant gel at least several times a day (three or four times a day is preferable), you can dramatically decrease the spread of pathogens in your household, or at work.
You protect yourself, and everyone around you, to boot.
Beware of Exorbitant Prices!
But…have you seen the prices of those commercial silver gel products?
Some of them run $20 or $30 for a tiny tube of silver gel that wouldn’t last a small family even a day or two if everyone were applying it to their hands! And many of them contain only trace, homeopathic amounts of silver – not nearly strong enough to provide lasting protection.
Thankfully, there’s a simple solution to this dilemma. All you have to do is make your own colloidal silver gel…for just pennies!
Make Your Own Colloidal Silver Gel for Pennies!
That’s right. You don’t have to spend exorbitant amounts of money to enjoy the protection of a colloidal silver gel.
You can easily make your own powerfully disinfectant colloidal silver-based gel – quickly and inexpensively — simply by adding a few tablespoons full of high-quality colloidal silver to 1/2 cup of pure, 100% aloe vera gel (available dirt cheap from Wal-Mart), and stirring it up thoroughly.
You can store it in an old cold cream jar, or any small, wide mouth glass jar with a lid. Or, for ease of application, use an empty bottle of liquid hand soap with a pump dispenser.
It’s quick, easy and it works like a charm.
Use it at home, at work, and especially whenever you go to the supermarket. Or simply use it throughout the day no matter what you’re doing, and you’ll enjoy superior protection from viral and bacterial pathogens all day long.
