For hand washing training use the oil or lotion, the powder can be used to show surface contamination and the transfer of "germs" from a variety of surfaces to the hands.

Expose the Truth About Hidden Germs -- and encourage proper hand washing and hygiene!

How Glow Germ™ works:
Step 1: Sprinkle powder on hands or common objects: desks, doorknobs, counter tops, etc. Microscopic fluorescent molecules will hide in crooks and crevices like real germs.
Step 2: Use scientific procedure included in #5031 Glo Germ™ Kit for hand washing.
Step 3: Shine UV light and see "simulated germs" glowing on hands and faces, proving just how thoroughly one must wash to eliminate germs and how mobile pathogens are.
