(HealthDay News) -- Hand sanitizers are a convenient method of cleaning hands and getting rid of germs, but it's important to use them properly.
The New York State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene offers this advice:
Squirt some sanitizer into the palm of one hand, and rub hands together and thoroughly rub sanitizer into both hands.
Let hands air dry; don't wipe them.
Use a sanitizer even when your hands are not visibly dirty, such as when you have sneezed or coughed, or you have been near a sick person.
