In general, both handwashing with soap and water and hand sanitizer, when practiced/used correctly, are highly effective at killing most germs and
Hand sanitizer is often more convenient when you are outside of the home, but can be expensive or difficult to find in emergency contexts.

ineffective against the norovirus and rotavirus.
