Hand sanitizer has recently become one of the most important items you can have in your home. It is a quick and easy way to clean your hands without the need for soap and water, and it helps to prevent the spread of germs and bacterial infections. However, not all hand sanitizers are alike, so it is important to understand what to look for when buying one.

First and foremost, you should look for a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are the most effective in killing germs and bacteria, and any sanitizer with less than this amount of alcohol is not as effective. When reading the label, look for the words "alcohol-based" or "ethanol-based," as this denotes that the product contains the correct amount of alcohol. 

It is also important to look out for other active ingredients in the sanitizer, such as benzalkonium chloride, which is an antiseptic. This ingredient helps to protect against germs and bacteria, and will not be as effective without the alcohol. Additionally, some hand sanitizers also contain fragrances, moisturizers, and other vitamins and minerals that can help to keep your skin healthy.

Finally, consider the size, price, and convenience of the product. Hand sanitizer comes in many different forms, from small bottles and sprays to larger refillable containers. Depending on the size of your family, you might want to buy the larger containers, as they will last longer and be more cost-effective. Also, look for ones that have a convenient shape, such as a pump bottle, to ensure that you can easily access the product.
