To the Rescue: Antibacterial Hand Gel

For those times when your fingers are less than fresh, stash some antibacterial hand gel to wipe them clean. I keep Bath and Body Works' handy 3-ounce bottles ($4) in my apartment, in North's car seat, and in my purse. Because I like to bring North on adventures around the city, there are times when I don't want my pet-touching and cleaning up after hands to also be my cupcake eating hands, for example. After trips to the park or when strangers are petting your dog at cafés, it's nice to keep everyone's hands germ-free!

Studies have shown that good old fashioned soap and water washing is better for eliminating germs, if you cant get to a sink than use the antibacterial gels.

Wow! Those are sweet! I like mine, but these look pretty and look like they smell pretty darn good too ;)

Yeah, the scents are better than Germ-X or Purell. But I agree with the others. Overuse is bad, mkay.

I meant, getting drunk off of the effects of the alcohol contained in the product. its potent. *Didnt have my coffee today

Great idea, but dont overdo it especially for those of you who have kids. There have been cases of toddlers/young children actually getting drunk off the effects of the alcohol. How? Constant sniffing of their hands after its applied.

I have the Midnight Pomegranet, (the first one), and it smells great. I keep it in my purse and usually just use it after I pump gas or right before I eat, and that's it.

I agree with Country Betty. I used to use it a lot until I heard that it kills the good bacterias we nee d to fight the bad ones.

Great Idea, but dont over do it with these. Using it too much will kill that good bacterias that you need to fight out the bad ones.
