Teach good hand hygiene - Magically!

GlitterBug is a product line that makes hand hygiene education interesting, fun, and memorable. The GlitterBug Potion is a fluorescent lotion that when used with a UV lamp makes it possible to see how well hands are washed. The GlitterBug Powder is used to see how contamination and germs can travel. GlitterBug Gel is an innovative product designed for teaching, testing and evaluating hand-sanitiser application technique.

It is perfect for schools, healthcare professionals and food-handling businesses.

Ideal for use with our unique collection of training lamps, cabinets and kits.

How to use the Potion

Using the potion is a simple 3 step process:

  1. Ask the student to rub the potion on their hands.
  2. The student washes and dries their hands as normal.
  3. When placed under a UV lamp any areas not washed properly will show up - as if by magic!

How to use the Powder

Dust the powder on a sheet of paper and hand it round the room. A check with the UV lamp and you can demonstrate how easily powder (or germs) can be spread from person to person.

Alternatively spread the powder on a work surface and ask someone to clean it. Again the UV light will show up any areas that have been missed.

How to use the Gel

  2. When the hands are placed under a UV lamp any areas not covered properly will not glow. These are areas that in practice must be covered for a sanitiser to be efeective
