Yes, washing your hands is best. But when you’re away from soap and hot water there are other options that work in a pinch.
As the temperatures drop (it is snowing in NYC today), hand sanitizer isn’t the best option because the alcohol in it can dry out your skin. Instead, try using baby wipes. Not only will they clean your hands as well as hand sanitizer, but most brands are alcohol-free, and are more gentle on your skin. Just be sure to look for unscented wipes, unless you enjoy smelling baby fresh!
