Kit size
About Handwash-it kit™

Elevate your hand washing and cleaning training with our Handwash-it kit!

Perfect for teaching proper techniques to students, our kit includes a "germ" lotion that glows under UV light, revealing any missed spots during hand washing. Empower your students to practice aseptic techniques with confidence.

What's included?

Each kit includes:

• Germ lotion
• Placebo lotion (classroom kit only)
• Blacklight
• Sanitizer
• Soap

What else is needed?

To complete the experiment, you will need:

• Access to a sink
• Paper or hand towel

Optional: if you want to compare other soaps from around the house/school, you can collect some ahead of time. Some hand soap and sanitizer is included in the kit.

Cleaning and safety supplies are not included in the kit. Necessary safety and cleaning supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, and a chlorinated bleach cleaner or a 10% solution of chlorinated bleach in a spray bottle (you can make this by adding 9 parts water to 1 part bleach in a spray bottle). You can add a Mini Safety Set to your kit which includes gloves and a reusable plastic apron to protect your clothes.

For more information about safety, set up and clean up, you can have a look at the instruction manual for the experiment linked in the Ressources section below, and at the "Practicing safe science" page.
