Only washing your hands with normal soap and water will not ***** many invisible germs. Soap cleans up dirty and greasy hands. Most people use hand sanitizer or antibacterial soap. However, using hand sanitizer on dirty hands is not much effective. Hence, it is best to use them after washing and drying your hands properly.

It should be used as directed. Swallowing of alcohol-based good smelling hand sanitizer can cause alcohol poisoning. Some people think that gargling of hand sanitizer can clear your throat. However, they contain ethyl alcohol and swallowing it could be very harmful and poisonous. It should always be kept away from the reach of children as they may be likely to swallow it as they are scented and brightly colored.

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.
