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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • I rarly use the product. I wash my hands. I only use it if I can't wash my hands.

  • I don't use the hand sanitizer much. I mostly use soap and water. When I do use it, I use whatever is available.

  • Yes. I use the Yankee Candle vanilla cupcake scent. I keep it in my purse to use after I touch ATM, credit card swipers, buggys when the store doesn't have sanitizer wipes, etc.

  • I don't use it often enough to care. I buy whatever is cheapest when I do need to replace a container.

  • no- we almost never use it anyway

  • 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.

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