Do Sanitizers Kill Viruses???

With the coronavirus infection spreading rapidly all over the world, the demand for hand sanitizers is touching the zenith. Hand sanitizers are convenient to carry and use. But the million-dollar question is – HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH? People are still in a state of oblivion about the proper guidelines to be maintained while consuming hand sanitizers.

Do Sanitizers Kill Viruses???



Hand sanitizers are usually composed of isopropyl alcohol or ethanol (91-99 percent alcohol), aloe vera gel, an essential oil such as tree oil or lavender oil. The ratio of alcohol to aloe vera must be 2:1. According to CDC, the alcohol content should be or more than 60 percent which ensures germ-killing to the core. Even researchers by scientists articulate that a 70 percent alcohol-based sanitizer is effective on the covid-19 virus.


Before anything else, you should keep in mind that sanitizers can effectively work only when you use them consistently with proper technique. One should have a clear concept about how much quantity to squeeze at one time. Excess use can harm your skin.

Whenever you are outside, touching any exposed surface like holding the door lock, ringing the bell, using elevators or staircase handle, or even shaking hands, make sure you never forget to disinfect your hands. To use your sanitizer correctly, you might pursue the following steps:-

  • Withdraw a considerable amount of fluid from the bottle on your palm. It should sufficiently cover both your hands and palms.
  • Fill the gaps of your fingers carefully.
  • Rub the sanitizer in your hands until it becomes dry.


Remember sanitizers never assure you to be effectively killing harmful chemicals. They reduce the risk of microbes by annihilating the protective protein sheath and their metabolism. According to the research done by CDC, sanitizing and washing your hands with soap and water stand equivalent. But, if your hands are too littered with dirt, then sanitizers might not work. Moreover, sanitizers are also not powerful enough to rescue from NOROVIRUS, CRYSPORIDIUM, AND CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE.
