Frequently Asked Questions
Why is alcohol hand sanitizer important?
Alcohol hand sanitizers should contain at least 60 percent alcohol . But any concentration between 60 to 95 percent will do the job.
A concentration of less than 60 percent alcohol in alcohol hand sanitizer can reduce the growth of germs but it won’t eradicate them completely. Therefore, beware of alcohol hand sanitizers with too little alcohol, or hand sanitizers that use alcohol substitutes , which are not as effective or recommended by the CDC.
How to use hand sanitizer correctly?
More important than using an effective alcohol hand sanitizer is to use it correctly . If your hands are dirty, greasy, or heavily soiled, alcohol hand sanitizer alone will not be effective.
Elliott suggests wiping your hands off with a paper towel or rinsing with water if that’s available before doing a double application of hand sanitizer. This helps it remove most of the grime so the sanitizer can be effective.
Once your hands are visibly clean, use at least a quarter-sized dollop of gel or enough alcohol hand sanitizer to completely cover both sides of your hands each time. Rub it in for about 20 seconds paying attention to the areas between fingers and under your nails until your hands are dry don’t wipe it off.
Where should hand sanitizer be stored?
Alcohol hand sanitizer should be stored out of reach, and sight, of children. It should not be stored above 105°F (for example, it should not be stored in a car during the summer months).
Is hand sanitizer effective against COVID-19?
The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose. If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
When & How to Use Hand Sanitizer in Community Settings?
During the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic, keeping hands clean is especially important to help prevent the virus from spreading. Find answers to frequent questions about hand hygiene on the CDC Hand Hygiene FAQs page.
CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not available, using an alcohol hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The guidance for effective handwashing and use of hand sanitizer in community settings was developed based on data from a number of studies.
