CCTV footage shared online shows the elderly shopper strolling into a service station after filling up on Tuesday.
Wearing a face mask he stops in the doorway and has a good look around for the hand gel.
He quickly spots two clear containers with blue and red liquid next to the door beside a stack of birthday cards.
He squeezes the handle and begins rubbing his hands – with ice cold raspberry slush.
The footage is now being shared widely online.
Rhian Dizzee said: “Poor bugger just trying to do the right thing – he could have someone really poorly at home.”
Chris Wood said: “Better effort than half the young hard nuts who don’t give a s*** about sanitisation.”
And Andrea Louise Batty wrote: “God bless his little heart, one thing his hands still will be clean – sticky but clean – melted my heart this.”
Lisa Hogan added: “God love him.”
