I taught a nutrition classes for older adults, and I used this product for a lesson on food safety (including hand washing). I was concerned that this product wouldn't show up well enough on the students' hands, because the rooms at both facilities were very well lit. However, with the inexpensive 400 nm black light flashlight (LED Wholesalers; also purchased from Amazon) I bought, the "germs" showed up very clearly. Also, though this bottle is small, I had plenty for 25-30 people with a little left over.

This definitely helped reinforce my lesson in a fun way, and I would buy this product again whether I'm teaching children or adults.

We used this gel for a Cub Scout Den meeting for Wolf achievement 3. We had considered using glitter and lotion to prove the same point but figured it would be messy. My husband had built a portable light bulb socket for our Pack campfire so we simply purchased a black light bulb at Lowes and took the whole assembly to the meeting.
We put a substantial amount of gel on one scout's hands (slightly more than the recommended dime sized amount) and had him rub it in slightly. Then we had that boy shake hands with another, then that boy shake hands with the next boy, and so on. We did this with 4 scouts each.
We turned on the black light and turned off the room lights and the gel WAS visible not only on the first Scout but on all 4. Even though they hadn't shaken hands with the original Scout that we put the lotion on.
The boys LOVED this. They loved being able to see the "germs" on their hands.
So we took them all to the sink and one by one they washed their hands while singing the ABC song. They came back in the room and we looked again. Most of the boys did a great job washing although there were a few that had a bit of gel left on their hands. Mostly on their inner wrist.

The "gel" is more like a thick lotion. We had tested it at home with less than the recommended dime size amount and it was difficult to wash off for my 3 sons. They didn't realize how hard it was to wash your hands APPROPRIATELY until they used this gel. Even after a second try they still had some left.

This is a GREAT learning tool. It seems expensive but my Scouts had a blast while they were learning about proper hand washing techniques. Well worth it.

Used this in a demo about germs with my 3-4 year old class. We went into a large storage closet with no windows, to get the maximum effect, only one child was afraid of the dark, but the rest were fascinated and asked every day for a week of we could check after washing our hands to see if they had any germs!
Note: This product does not really make "germs" glow. There is a little trickery involved, but you can see after washing your hands, all the spots you missed!

I ordered the glo germ gel to use for my teaching lesson on hand washing to preschool age children. It was a big hit, and it really does a great job simulating how quick germs can be spread! The bottle may look small, but you only need a pea size amount to have enough

I am a nurse and I used this to scare some of the newer nurse. It works very well to show what gets done when washing hands, and the difference between washing hands and using foam cleaner

I bought this to teach a lesson on hand washing and germs and germ spread. This was very effective in imitating germs and the importance of hand washing. It was much more effective than any lecture or game that I could have come up with for middle school students. It is easy to use.

It was very effective and the price was fair. My daughter found it very easy to manipulate as she completed her Science Fair project.
