Think You Understand Hand Sanitizers?

You Think You Understand Hand Sanitizer?

My guess is you probably don’t.

Want to kill a virus?  You have to denature its proteins.  Want to kill something?  You probably need the strongest solution out there? Right?  You’d think….”Get me the strongest alcohol % solution out there to kill something”!

Wrong! The highest percentage doesn’t do the trick!  See what we learned about the % of alcohol in hand sanitizers! 

A Note On Infection Control from Maxill

Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl Alcohol 99% is pure isopropanol and Isopropyl Alcohol 70% is pure isopropanol diluted with 30% purified water by volume.

Isopropyl Alcohol 70%, or Isopropyl Alcohol 99% diluted to 70% with purified water, kills organisms by denaturing their proteins. A 70% isopropyl alcohol solution dissolves their lipids and is effective against most bacteria and fungi and many viruses, but is ineffective against bacterial spores.
