If there is one good thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s the importance of washing our hands. Wherever you go, there are memes and images informing us of the importance and necessity of hand washing.
Since handwashing took off as an effective way to prevent the spread of Covid-19, so did hand sanitizer. They flew off the shelves of pharmacies and department stores faster than you could say virus. Washing your hands with soap and water remains the preferred method of germ protection. But when you can’t wash your hands, waterless hand sanitizer is the next best thing because it contains alcohol, and alcohol kills germs.
We’ve learnt that Covid-19 possesses a fat layer as a component of the viral envelope. Alcohol dissolves this envelope and inactivates the virus’ lipids and proteins. Remember that the alcohol content is important. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a minimum of 60% alcohol to kill Covid-19.
