  • Did you know that handwashing is the simplest, most effective defence against food poisoning?

  • Do you know how well you wash your hands? - You will if you do the Glitter Bug®!

The GlitterBug® fluorescing powder and potion are used to represent ‘pretend’ bacteria. They show as white, bright spots under long wave UV light. The Handwashing Kits are cost-effective, fun to use and let your staff "learn by doing". Depending on your training needs, you can purchase full or mini Handwashing Kits consisting of UV Torch, GlitterBug® Potion or GlitterBug® Powder.

Have you seen our educational handwashing posters?

 
   
   

GlitterBug potion®

 

GlitterBug® potion is great for handwashing demonstrations!

A little potion goes a long way and the 240ml bottle is enough for over 200 applications. Just put a little of the potion on you hands and rub it in. Then go and wash your hands. After washing your hands, place them under the UV light. Lo and behold - all the parts you have not washed effectively show up as little white spots.

 

Now go and wash your hands properly!

 

Use the potion to experience how thoroughly hands must be washed to remove bacteria and other substances that you cannot see.

 

Experiment washing hands with

  • Water only

  • Water, soap and no rubbing

  • Water, soap, rubbing and no drying

  • Water, soap, rubbing, rinsing and drying!

You will see the difference!

 

 

GlitterBug powder®

 

GlitterBug® powder can be used effectively with a ball or papers to demonstrate cross contamination

 

Cross contamination is a concept that is sometimes difficult for food handlers to grasp.

 

One bottle of powder is enough for hundreds of illuminating demonstrations.

Just place a little on your hands and rub them together. Pick up a plastic ball and throw it to all staff members in turn. Alternatively, put a little on a piece of paper and pass it around. (Or on the bottom of plate of cakes and pass them round at morning tea!)

 

Pass the UV torch over everyone’s hands and hey presto - white dots will show on the hands where they have touched the ball/paper/plate.

  • GlitterBug® shows how 'bacteria' from your hands pass to others without you having touched anyone directly!

  • What are your food handlers passing around the kitchen?

  • Use flourescing GlitterBug® powder or potion to demonstrate cross contamination or effective handwashing technique.
