Side Effects of Hand Sanitizers and Other Disinfectants


Many hand sanitizers come with very high alcohol levels. Therefore, drinking these products accidentally may lead to poisoning. The risk is especially high for children as hand sanitizers are almost everywhere. To prevent, make sure to store them in a safe place and away from your kids. You should also educate them about the danger of drinking these solutions. You should also supervise your little ones when they are using hand sanitizers. After each use, wait until the hands are dry fully before touching the face or eyes. Try to read the ingredient list and only purchase products with low levels of alcohol. [1]
