When you don’t have quick access to hand-washing, hand sanitizer is designed to kill germs and reduce the spread of COVID and its ugly siblings, the Delta and Omicron variants. To avoid the store and steer clear of germs, check out some online retailers with plenty of sanitizer in stock — many offering free shipping too.
Which hand sanitizers kill coronavirus?
Sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol are effective against germs, including those that cause coronavirus, according to the CDC. Stay safe by avoiding products on the FDA’s updated do-not-use list. And take advantage of 20 seconds of soap-and-water hand-washing when you can.

How do I prevent dry skin from hand sanitizer?
The best way is to use soap and water whenever possible, because the alcohol in hand sanitizer is harsh on the skin. However, apply a rich moisturizer after you’ve used hand sanitizer and let it absorb into your skin to reduce dryness and irritation.
Which hand sanitizers can I use on my face?
It isn’t recommended to apply hand sanitizer to your face. The alcohol in hand sanitizers is harsh on delicate facial skin and can cause dryness, irritation and possibly some allergic reactions. Use a facial cleanser instead.
Gel hand sanitizers can come in handy in a pinch when you don’t have access to soap and water. While many alcohol-free options are available, the CDC recommends that you choose a product with at least 60% alcohol to be most effective at killing germs.
