Autoglym launches two new sanitisers

Car-care expert Autoglym has launched two new products aimed at keeping drivers, cars and automotive sector workers clean, safe and protected from germs and bacteria: Autoglym Hand Sanitiser and Autoglym Anti-Bacterial Multi-Surface Sanitiser.

Using a World Health Organisation approved formulation, Autoglym Hand Sanitiser is made from an 80% alcohol mix, in an easy to use and apply hand rub. Available in both 100ml and five-litre containers, Autoglym Hand Sanitiser is ideal for multiple different applications. The large five-litre container is perfect for shared work environments such as workshops and warehouses, while the smaller pocket-sized containers are great for sales staff and drivers to use as a pocket-sized sanitiser when dealing with or meeting customers.

The Hertfordshire-based company allocated 20,000 of the first 100ml bottles of Hand Sanitiser to frontline staff free-of-charge in answer to a shortage of supplies nationally and in the area around its headquarters in Letchworth.

Meanwhile, Autoglym has also launched a multi-surface sanitiser which will be offered again in two sizes – portable 500ml spray bottles or large five-litre workshop-sized dispensers, ideal for use in dealerships, workshops or preparation centres. The new Multi-Surface Sanitiser meets EN1276 approval and is effective against harmful micro-organisms, killing 99.9% of bacteria. The sanitiser is safe for use on all washable hard surfaces, both inside and outside a car and also in a workshop or customer-facing environment.

Paul Caller, CEO of Autoglym, said: “As car dealerships, valeters and rental companies start to return to work and customers have a new-found focus on hygiene and cleanliness, we thought it was imperative to offer peace of mind to both our Professional trade businesses and also their direct clients by introducing a new range of sanitisers that would bring reassurance to all concerned. These are new products for Autoglym and we managed to get them into our range in record time compared to a normal product development cycle in order to provide reassurance to our valued customers.”

The new sanitiser range is available online, to include contact-free home delivery, as well as through Autoglym’s franchise network.
