Hand sanitizers have become a very much in-demand item recently, but you should also make sure you’re getting one that can really do the job.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the leading public health institution in the United States, recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as the best defense against germs. The next best thing, if you don’t have soap and water readily available, is an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention does note, though, that hand sanitizer doesn’t eliminate all germs, but it can quickly reduce the number of microbes on hands in some situations.
Here is a list of best hand sanitizers that really do the job.
