My family travels often and we like to use antibacterial gels to keep our hands sanitized. Are these products effective?
Yes, you can use disposable wipes or a hand gel sanitizer without water. The alcohol in the gel kills the germs on your hands. You can find disposable wipes and hand gel sanitizers in most supermarkets and drugstores.
