Do you use hand sanitizers? Do you have it in your soap?

I prefer the hand washing method to hand sanitizer. I do keep one in the car to use on occasion.

We don't use antibacterial soap around the house, but I try to have a bottle of hand sanitizer in the car just in case.

Absolutely NOT!  I just read that according to FDA guidelines, to be called anti bacterial the product must contain pesticides (triclosan) or be at least 62% alcohol.  No thanks.  The story those stats were in also said that wealthy children are exposed to fewer germs and also have more allergies.  No conclusion was drawn, but I can put 2 and 2 together.
