Hand Sanitizer kills 99.9% of germs What the other 1% of germs its not killing?

Approximately 0.1% of bacteria are truelt pathogenic By this we mean they will infect a healthy individual. Its quite ironic really that that is the same percentage that hand washes DO not kill. Makes me laugh when the Ads come on.

Hello! It is .1% (a tenth of a percent), not worth worrying about.

Only sterilization kills everything. Why the hell would you be concerned? 99.99% of the germs on your skin are non-pathogenic anyway.

really nice question and i have always wondered what is the 0.1%that can not be killed and still do not know but maybe the aim of this is to tell you that it is not perfectly safe in order not to sue them in case something happened

The remaining germs actually grow at a accelerated rate due to lack of competition and the added nutrients resulting from their dead brethren. The population grows back to approximately the same level it was once at.

The alcohol they use in all hand sanitizers is just that; alcohol. Alcohol is not and can not be a sterilizer, or something that destroys all forms of microbial life on a surface. You cannot sterilize living tissue like your body; there are always microbes present. Endospores (spores of vegetative pathogens that are dormant) can live in buckets of alcohol. I think the reason people have problems with this is that they misunderstand basic microbiology terminology.

Sterilize: Like when the hospital autoclaves the surgical instruments. It kills everything, even endospores.

SANITIZE: The reduction of the microbial load on a given surface to a safe level for the general public without killing endospores. This is what a hand sanitizer does. This is also what a restaurant does to the eating utensils: just enough to not make you sick.

Disinfection: The destruction of vegetative pathogens, usually by chemicals.

Antisepsis: Killing vegetative pathogens on a living surface (tissue).
Really hope that this helps you out. P.S. washing your hands for 15 seconds is way better.
