  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Has “fragrance”
    The term “fragrance” often involves chemicals. Stick to essential oil scents which are natural.
