Top 5 Hand Sanitizers in India.

Top 5 hand sanitizers in India…before we go any further,let us discuss…

What is a Hand Sanitizer?

A hand sanitizer is a form of gel or liquid that helps in eliminating harmful microorganisms that may prove to be infectious. A good sanitizer is one that contains 60-95% alcohol(mainly ethyl alcohol) in it, as it helps to kill the bacteria by up to 99.9% within 30 seconds of being applied.

Also, make sure your hands are not dirty or greasy for the best results.
