Accuracy and Safety

Foreign bodies left on the skin can interfere with blood sugar readings. For example, something as small as water left on your skin (or worse, something like juice that already has such high sugar levels) at the puncture site can lead to falsely elevated readings.

You’re also not just trying to get rid of things you can see like dirt, food, or dust, but the nasties you can’t see- like germs, bacteria, and fungi. Lancing introducing a foreign object (the needle) into your body and you need to ensure that nothing hitches a ride inside. Thoroughly cleaning injection/lancing sites help prevent this.

And while washing your hands before testing seems like a simple solution to remove all impurities, such as fruit juice, food, and dirt, every something as simple as excess water can interfere with accurate testing. 

What's worse is when you're out and about and can't get somewhere to wash your hands. Don't let the rush and pressure of daily life get in the way of safe cleaning and maintenance habits.
