Color Changing Hand Sanitizer Infused Gloves

Might be easier than the color changing hand sanitizer.

These disposable gloves have a hand sanitizing agent on them that lasts for several hours. When the agent is no longer effective, the color changes indicating that they need to be changed.

One thing I like about this is that, during a pandemic, if enough people are wearing them they're effectively sanitizing commonly touched surfaces.

Rather than strictly playing defense, civilization has a weapon to go on the offensive against these viral pandemics.

We'll fight them in the grocery aisles, the gas stations, the bars, the shops and anywhere else they might hide in wait.

Sometimes you need to quit hiding fight back. This might be one way to do it. Wearing masks and these gloves, every citizen is a soldier against this plague.

       Except... every microbial agent you use helps breed stronger bugs. Kills off the weaklings, leaves less competition for the stray bug that has resistance so they multiply. So then you find a new antimicrobial for that breed. Except ...

       Yea, was thinking about that.   

       Just get stronger toxins I guess.

       Free chlorine is an effective biocide (as are the other halogens), and because of its simplicity and mechanism of action organisms can't easily develop any meaningful resistance- but it's volatile, and toxic to humans, too.   

       A balance between toxicity and effectiveness has always been the great challenge in that field.
