    Hello all,

    I have recently bought my Daughter some X3 Hand sanitizer to use to clean her hands when she is out.

    These were handy as they came in a 57ml spray bottle and would nicely in her bag.

    Now my supplier has stopped selling these sprays and i am struggling to get her a similar product.

    Can anyone recommend a good product for her to use pre blood test please ?

    Regards,

    Tom

    I just use a small spray bottle of water to get excess sugar off my hands

    I know how you feel I'm 13 and when I'm out and about its really annoying and you don't want to have to trek miles just to find some toilets. Try asking your diabetic nurse/consultant they may reccomend you. When we asked they said there where some hand wipes but we've never looked into it x :)

    It can effect the reading if it has alcohol and any thing like glycerin x
