Using Hand Sanitizer or Soap?
You can use hand sanitizer when there is no soap or water. But what if you can choose soap rather than hand sanitizer? Is it good enough?
Interestingly enough, the Food and Drug Administration, in regards to regulations concerning proper procedures for food services, recommends that hand sanitizers not be used in place of soap and water but only as an adjunct.
Likewise, Almanza recommends that to properly sanitize the hands, soap and water should be used. A hand sanitizer can not and should not take the place of proper cleansing procedures with soap and water.
But I am still thinking that using hand sanitizer is more effective, right?
