Hand disinfection made easy – in 6 steps

In times when the world is confronted with a multitude of infectious diseases, hand hygiene is an important topic that is often neglected. A simple yet effective measure to contain the spread of pathogens is regular hand sanitising. Here you can find out why sanitising your hands is more than just an everyday habit.

Prevention of infectious diseases: Pathogens such as viruses and bacteria can easily be spread via the hands, especially when we visit public places or touch objects that have been used by other people. By thoroughly sanitising our hands, we can reduce the likelihood of infection and thus help to limit the spread of disease.

Protection for vulnerable groups: People with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly or those with chronic illnesses, are particularly at risk. By regularly disinfecting our hands, we not only protect ourselves, but also these vulnerable groups from potentially dangerous pathogens.

Contribution to public health: Consistent hand hygiene not only contributes to personal protection, but also has a positive impact on the health of the population as a whole. Fewer cases of illness mean a lower burden on the healthcare system and higher productivity in society.

Simple and quick measure: Disinfecting your hands is a simple and quick measure that everyone can easily integrate into their daily routine.

Environmentally friendly alternatives: In addition to conventional disinfectants, Hydroliq Disinfecta Plus is an alternative on the market that is biodegradable and contains no harmful chemicals. This way, we can not only rid our hands of 99.99% of all germs, but also protect the environment.

In our video, we show you how to sanitise your hands properly. Step 1:

Step 2:

By integrating this habit into our everyday lives, we can make an important contribution to the prevention of infectious diseases and help to contain the spread of pathogens. Provided that hand sanitising is carried out correctly.

Certification VAH

En mai 2020, la VAH (Association for Applied Hygiene e.V.) a renforcé les exigences en matière de stabilité pour l’approbation des produits à base de composés libérant du chlore. Hydroliq a commandé 2 nouvelles preuves d’efficacité à 2 laboratoires indépendants accrédités et les a passés avec brio. Cela se traduit désormais par la certification officielle VAH, qui est nécessaire pour l’utilisation des solutions de désinfection dans les établissements de santé/hôpitaux en Europe.

Did you know

Cows often have a painful, inflammatory disease on their hooves called mortellaro.

Since these are treated in the milking parlor / milking robot and the treatment with conventional products burns a lot, it has been found that the animals therefore appear less for milking. Thanks to the use of Hydroliq Animal, the cows come voluntarily for hoof treatment and no longer feel pain.

Due to the constant disinfection of the claws, the farmers could determine an outstanding effect of the product against this disease.


Three 40′ shipping containers just left our production facility in Lucerne and are now on the long sea route towards our subsidiary Hydroliq PTY Ltd. in Cape Town, South Africa. One of our first steps towards international expansion in our still young company history has been taken.

We look forward to the cooperation and future with our team on site in South Africa and wish a successful venture!
