They should be used after washing your hands or without washing your hands. That means sometimes when you are doing outdoor activities and water is not available; you will need hand sanitizer. Also, if hands have touched harmful chemicals, you should wash carefully with soap and water and then apply it over them after drying them. Other places that you should use them are in public transports, public bathrooms, hospitals, and so on.
