Hello Everyone! Regardless to the fact that sanitizers have been found to be dangerous, many are still are unaware of this fact. I stopped buying hand sanitizers about 5 years ago. In fact, for the same reasons, I don't buy household cleaners anymore either. No longer am I needing to be concerned about the dangers posed by such cleaners and antibacterials, and I have enjoyed a large unexpected savings on my household expenses. After you read the article below, you might want to consider my recommendations: I buy alcohol in bulk from the local wholesale club and sprayer bottles from the local drug store. I was also fortunate once to buy a lot of spray bottle tops for a very reasonable price. The spray bottle tops are re-usable, and I found that for the most part they tend to be universal. I can take the alcohol I bought from the wholesale club and simply replace the tops with my sprayer tops, and I am ready to go. Really simple and cheap! I have an alcohol bottle in my bedroom, each of the bathrooms, the kitchen, my car and in my lunch bag. It can be used to clean almost any surface including your bathtubs and sinks (just spray it on and leave it for a few mins, then wipe it off with a rag or a scrubby). The one in my car has come in handy for quick hand cleaning and unexpected spills/stains on my clothes. If you would prefer to use vinegar, that works just as well, but a little stinky. There is no need to be obsessive compulsive about cleaning your hands, as some would have you to believe is the ideal. Instead, be wise. Clean your hands when they need to be cleaned... and stop wasting your money on expensive and dangerous anti-bacterials. Have a great day!!! Barbara:)
