Fear of swine flu is creating a run on handwash, with manufacturer DCS Europe selling 40,000 bottles of its own-label Enliven handwash in two days and taking an order from a brand to produce a million bottles. PZ Cussons, maker of Carex, and Aldi have also reported greater demand for anti-bacterial handwash. The Department of Health has taken out ads advising people to regularly wash their hands and use disposable handkerchiefs.
