10 Unexpected Times You Should NOT Use Hand Sanitizer
#2: You’ve handled raw meat
There’s no doubt about it: preparing raw meat requires clean hands. But what about cleaning them afterwards?
Some people (especially workers from the food industry) are using hand sanitizer after touching raw meat thinking they can get rid of its bacteria and grease better.
Unfortunately, things don’t work that way. In fact, the CDC points out that all the grease found on meat (especially fish) reduces the efficiency of hand sanitizers significantly.
Once again, the best practice after handling raw meat is to simply wash your hands using plain soap and water.
