Why do Sanitisers Not Eliminate All Types of Germs?

Since the Coronavirus (CoVid-19) outbreak in Wuhan, China, more people have been asking about ways to prevent attracting this novel disease.

Nothing beats the ease of use and convenience of sanitizers. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of microbes on hands, however, sanitizers do not eliminate all types of germs.

Why? Soap and water are more effective than hand sanitizers at removing certain types of bacteria, like Cryptosporidium, norovirus, and Clostridium difficile. Although alcohol-based hand sanitizers can inactivate many types of microbes very effectively when used correctly, people may not use a large enough volume of the sanitizers or may wipe it off before it has dried. So be sure to use enough and cleanse thoroughly for a minimum of 30 seconds.
