Hand sanitizer vs Wet wipes

  • 567 views

In this fight against the novel coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, hand sanitizers and wet wipes have become essential. Washing your hands with warm water and soap is still the best way to kill germs including the different viruses. However, you don’t always have access to a sink with water and soap. Your best option is to keep a hand sanitizer or wet wipes with you at all times.

The advantage of the hand sanitizer or the wet wipes is that they are both available in pocket or travel sizes. But which one is better? In both products, the active ingredient is alcohol. In order for a hand sanitizer or wet wipes to be effective, they should have at least 60% alcohol.

With hand sanitizers and wet wipes going out of stock as people are hoarding them, a lot of organizations have started cropping up selling unbranded sanitizers and wet wipes. You have to make sure to check out the label of the product. Is it based on 60% alcohol? Is the company even registered with the Food and Drug Administration?

You don’t really have to choose between the two because there is no rule that you can take only one of them with you at all times. They can be complementary to each other. You can use the hand sanitizer to clean your hands, while you can use the wet wipes to clean surfaces and things that you are not sure about. Metal railings, for example, are headquarters of germs. The coronavirus could survive on metal railings for a few days. You can use the wet wipes to clean metal railings and other surfaces. As soon as you throw the soiled wipe, you then clean your hands with the sanitizer.
