So to do this, many people are regularly using hand sanitizer, in addition to the powerful combination of soap and water, of course. But what you need to know is, just like with soap and water, there are wrong ways and right ways to use your hand sanitizer.

Your best bet against bacteria, germs, and viruses, including the novel coronavirus, is washing your hands for a full twenty seconds whenever possible and as frequently as necessary. While it’s recommended to use hand sanitizer and that it can also be effective when it comes to the daily fight against the virus, it’s crucial to use it only when you don’t have access to soap and water. A huge mistake would be using your hand sanitizer as a replacement for soap and water.

Moreover, you need to keep in mind that you should never use hand sanitizer to clean visibly dirty hands because nothing can clean your hands better than, right, you guessed it, soap and water! So as long as you have access to a handwashing sink, then you should just leave that bottle of hand-sanitizing gel behind.

  1. Better to use hydrogen peroxide aerosol. This from Duke University study. Cheap to buy. It was only 88 cents at CVS and Walmart (32 oz.) Pump sprayer from Walmart was only 99 cents in the pharmacy section .

    Let dry overnight. Suggest at least 2 masks and rotate using every other day after cleaning.. stay healthy
