Look for something that has at least 60% alcohol, Purell is a common brand. Avoid cut-rate products, some have as low as 40% alcohol and are not effective. These things do not generate resistant bugs, as they are physical membrane disrupters. They are good to use when there is some risk of the hands being contaminated (having held onto the stair rail for 4 flights in the hospital, say, or played with a snotty baby). They shouldn’t be used excessively just for the sake of feeling clean.
