Infectious diseases (ID) circulating in the home and community remain a significant concern. Two factors are largely responsible first is the constantly changing nature and range of pathogens to which we are exposed and, second is the demographic changes occurring in the community, which affect our resistance to infections. The impact of hand hygiene is important to reduce transmission of ID in the home and community. The antibacterial soap as they contain triclosan which have huge amount of disadvantage and also alcohol base sanitizer which causes irritation due to skin drying, so we can replace it with herbal antimicrobial ingredients.
