Are you picky about your hand sanitizer?

Are you faithful to one particular brand, or do you use anything?

  • I am now! They need to have at least 60% alcohol to be effective. LINK  SO that generally means a name brand for me.

  • I don't bother.

  • PS: There's no actual data to suggest that my super bug concern is valid lol. It's my own deal

  • No, I don't use it unless really compelled to do so. I think soap and water is more effective and has less bacteria resistant risk attached

  • Yes, I use the little bottles of Bath and Body Works sanitizer. It's the only one that doesn't dry out my skin, and I like the smell. I use it every time I get back into my car in public (after the grocery store, after I pump gas, after karate class, etc.) My kids also use it when we get back into the car and after school, and they have one clipped to their backpacks to use occasionally at school.

  • Not really. I buy what's on sale. I don't like the feel of the stuff at all, so I'll hoose plain old handwashing if it's an option.

  • I have store brand sanitizer that is a year expired because I bought 10-20 when they were .25 cents a big bottle.

  • I'm not necessarily faithful to any one brand but I tend to not prefer the random, dollar store stuff because it smells weird and leaves my hands feeling rubbery.

  • If I buy some it has to have moisturizer in it. I hate how they dry your hands out :( I like bath and body works
