10 What About Hand Sanitizers? Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to reduce the number of germs on them. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer. Important: Hand sanitizers are not effective if your hands are visibly dirty. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs on hands in some situations, but sanitizers do not eliminate all types of germs.

11 Always use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Here’s how to use hand sanitizer properly: Apply the product to the palm of one hand. Rub your hands together. Rub the product over all surfaces of your hands and fingers until your hands are dry.
