The Different Uses for Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is a widely produced product that most people have laying around. The most common use for hand sanitizer is to clean and disinfect our hands when soap and water are not readily available. But as it turns out there are more ways to use hand sanitizer beyond cleaning our hands. Who knew? Below, we are highlighting alternative uses for hand sanitizer.

 

Disinfecting Surfaces

Probably one of the most common uses for hand sanitizer, after cleaning your hands, is to disinfect various surfaces. These surfaces can range from door handles to grocery store carts. While these surfaces are different they are all high points of contact for most people.

Germs are everywhere so using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with at least 60 percent alcohol, to sanitize highly touched surfaces is sure to reduce the amount of germs you come in contact with. This will help reduce your risk of getting sick and spreading germs around.

 

Cleaning your Eyeglasses & Phone Screen

We can all likely attest to the fact that our eyeglasses and phone screens are always dirty and smudged. We spend money on special cleaners when we can simply pick up a bottle of hand sanitizer instead. The alcohol in hand sanitizer helps eliminate fingerprints and oils. It will also help kill any germs that are present. This is more common with phone screens since our phones are constantly exposed to the world and are maintained in warm spaces, like our bags or pockets, which can cause bacteria to multiply.

 

Removing Stains

Who would have thought that hand sanitizer can function as a stain remover? Due to the high concentration of alcohol, hand sanitizer can remove anything from food spills to blood. By pre-treating a stain with hand sanitizer, you’re likely to have an easier time getting the stain in the wash.

 

Eliminate Fingerprints from Stainless Steel

There is nothing worse than fingerprints or smudges ruining the look of your stainless- steel appliances. As we have mentioned in the applications above, the alcohol concentration in hand sanitizer makes it great for dislodging dirt and oils you find on the surfaces of items. So, if you use hand sanitizer to clean stainless steel, you will be able to remove smudges, oils, and marks making your appliances shine like new!
