FDA recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever
possible because hand washing reduces the amounts of all types
of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not
available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 75% alcohol can
help avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many studies have found that sanitizers with an alcohol
concentration between 60–95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower alcohol concentration
or non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers without 60-95% alcohol:
1) May not work equally well for many types of germs; and
2) Merely reduce the growth of germs rather than kill them outright.
Generally, sanitizers are more effective at killing microorganisms than soap and water, with some exceptions such
as Norovirus and Clostridium difficile. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is more convenient compared to hand washing
with soap and water in most situations in the healthcare setting. It is generally more effective at killing
microorganisms and better tolerated than soap and water. Alcohol rub sanitizers kill most bacteria, and fungi, and
stop some viruses. Alcohol rub sanitizers containing at least 70% alcohol (mainly ethyl alcohol) kill 99.9% of the
bacteria on hands 30 seconds after application and 99.99% to 99.999% in one minute.
For health care, optimal disinfection requires attention to all exposed surfaces such as around the fingernails,
between the fingers, on the back of the thumb, and around the wrist. Hand alcohol should be thoroughly rubbed
into the hands and on the lower forearm for duration of at least 30 seconds and then allowed to air dry. Use of
alcohol-based hand gels dries skin less, leaving more moisture in the epidermis, than hand washing with
antiseptic/antimicrobial soap and water.
