Have you ever wondered if hand sanitizer is a good replacement for handwashing? It is so much more convenient, especially since you can carry a small bottle with you everywhere.
Well, hand sanitizer can be very efficient, especially if it used properly by rubbing your hands together until it is dry and covering every part of your skin with it, but it still can’t measure up to proper handwashing.
When you wash your hands with hot water and soap, you kill the virus, but you also make it so the virus can’t attach to your skin, making it easier to rinse it off with some hot water after you are done.
So by all means, continue to use hand sanitizer – it is a great tool when you are in a pinch, but you should always use a sink when you have the choice. It is the best way to keep yourself healthy.
