History of Hand sanitizer
Benefits and Limitations for Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer is a great product. It makes people feel that they have clean hands. That is because most hand sanitizer do clean your hands. Sense some don't clean your hands that is what i want to figure out. When I use sanitizer I want to know if it is actually helping me or hurting me like most people.
History of Hand sanitizer
Hand sanitizers were invented by Lupe Hernandez, a registered nurse in Bakersfield, California, in 1966. While Hernandez was studying to become a nurse, she learned that cleaning alcohol can be delivered via a gel so that cleaning could occur without a soap and water. The alcohol in hand sanitizers kills germs and bacteria found on hands.
Benefits of using Hand Sanitizer:
* Hand sanitizers are convenient, portable, easy to use and not time consuming.
* Several studies have concluded that the risk of spreading gastrointestinal (stomach) and respiratory infection is decreased among families who use hand sanitizers.
Commercially prepared hand sanitizers contain ingredients that help prevent skin dryness. Using these products can result in less skin dryness and irritation than hand-washing.

Studies show that adding hand sanitizers to classrooms can reduce student absenteeism due to illness by 20 per cent. What's more, many kids think instant hand sanitizers are fun to use.

Limitations of using Hand Sanitizer:
*Not all hand sanitizers are created equally. Check the bottle for active ingredients. The alcohol content may be in the form of ethyl alcohol, ethanol or isopropanol. All of those are acceptable forms of alcohol. Be certain that no matter which type of alcohol is listed, its concentration is between 60 and 95 per cent. Am alcohol content of less than 60 per cent isn't enough to be effective.
*Alcohol does not cut through grime. All dirt, blood and soil must be wiped or washed away first if the alcohol in the sanitizer is to be effective. In such cases, hand-washing with soap and water is advised.
* Hand sanitizers are not cleaning agents and are not meant as a replacement for soap and water, but as a complementary habit. Sanitizers are most effective when used in conjunction with diligent hand-washing.
*The use of hand sanitizers is a habit that can help keep us all exposed to fewer germs, and therefore may decrease our chance of illness. Whether you are on the playground, using someones computer or visiting a friend in the hospital, take the time to rub some on your hands. It is an easy step toward a healthy winter season.

What Hand Sanitizer is the best?
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are a solid choice for killing germs, according to the
CDC. These products eliminate the widest range of microbes they're gentler on skin
than soap, and when used under supervision they're even safe for kids. As long as
a hand sanitizer contains at least 60 percent alcohol, health experts say it will kill
most bacteria. Providing the alcohol content is sufficient, cheaper generic products
should work as well as name brands. Alcohol aside, however, various hand sanitizers
can smell and feel different on skin. It's important that you select a product that
you personally find appealing; experts say if you like a particular sanitizer, you'll be
more likely to use it.

Hand sanitizer without alcohol is not as effective as hand sanitizer with alcohol. The reason hand sanitizers has alcohol is because the alcohol and water combined together activate the germ fighting system.
1997, PURELL Hand Sanitizer was made available to consumers, forever changing the way the world stays well. It soon became America’s #1 hand sanitizer and a significant part of popular culture.
It was founded in 1990 in New Albany, Ohio and has since expanded across the United States and Canada. It specializes in shower gels, lotions, fragrance mists, perfumes, candles, and home fragrances. It was just until a couple of years ago that they started to sell hand sanitizers in many different scents.
Bath & Body Works
October 20, 2005 Germ-x is the brand name of a line of antibacterial and antimicrobial products marketed in the United States. Germ-X products include instant hand sanitizer gels, foaming hand soap, and soft wipes. Germ-X products are manufactured by Vi-Jon Laboratories, based in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Science
The Hand Sanitizer has to have have alcohcol in them for very important reasons. If your hand sanitizer doesn't have at 70% alcohol and 30% water you need a better one. It needs those things because the water activates the alcohol fighting germ technology

Psalm 24:4
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
The Hand sanitizer represents God's forgiveness for us that takes away our sins from our lives. That is like hand sanitizer takes away the germs from our hands
