5 Mistakes to Avoid with Sanitizer
- Use too little
Apply enough to rub onto both sides of your hands, thumbs, between fingers and even under finger nails. Use a small brush or old toothbrush for nail cleaning.
- Don’t let it dry
Rub sanitizer on hands until it dries. Only then is it considered effective. If still wet, it can collect dirt and germs.
- Hand washing substitute
Hand sanitizer is only a substitute for hand washing if no water is available. Whenever possible, wash your hands with soap thoroughly for 20 seconds.
- Insufficient alcohol
Be sure hand sanitizer has at least 60% alcohol per the CDC and FDA. DIY hand sanitizers can be risky. Use a trusted brand to ensure it's safe and effective.
- Has “fragrance”
The term “fragrance” often involves chemicals. Stick to essential oil scents which are natural.
