The Pros and Cons of Hand Sanitizer

The Pros and Cons of Hand Sanitizer

The pros of hand sanitizer:

• Clean made easy. When you don’t have access to soap and water, a small bottle of hand sanitizer is the perfect solution for someone who is constantly on the go. It can conveniently be stored just about anywhere; in your purse, car, or even in your pocket!

• Say goodbye to germs. No one can dispute alcohol’s ability to kill germs and bacteria. Hand sanitizer has proved to be effective in preventing the spread of viruses at almost any facility and application.

• It’s easy on your wallet. As the market and production stabilizes, sanitizers are relatively inexpensive and can be stored for about 2-3 years. Bottles can last for weeks to months at a time with consistent use, meaning there is less need for frequent purchases.

The cons of hand sanitizer:

• Some brands are ineffective. While most popular brands do meet the 60 percent minimum alcohol concentration required to effectively kill viruses and bacteria, some brands do not. As with any product, it’s very important to read the label to know what makes up the product.

• Not the best solution for grime. Hand sanitizer may be effective against germs, but it’s relatively ineffective when removing heavy grease and dirt from the hands. 


Good hand hygiene is important to maintaining your good health and is one of the simplest ways to reduce your risk of getting sick. Continue to wash your hands frequently with soap and water as well as hand sanitizer to effectively kill harmful bacteria.
