Hand washing vs. using hand sanitizer
Everyone should wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which notes it’s the best way to remove certain germs from the hands.
But if hand soap is unavailable, the CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Keep in mind the CDC notes hand sanitizer may not work as well when hands are heavily soiled or greasy — nor is it as effective as hand washing against removing certain types of germs, including norovirus.
What kind of soap kills COVID-19?
The CDC maintains that washing your hands with soap and water is the best way to remove germs. Any soap — whether it’s antibacterial or a natural, eco-friendly option — can remove dirt and germs from your hands. Studies have found no added benefit to using antibacterial versus plain soap, according to the CDC.
