I can't say I'm a big proponent of antibacterial hand sanitizer. I feel like you're killing the germs on your hands, but you just end up with dead germs on your hands, because you don't wash them off.
Then again, when it's all you have, I say go for it.
I especially say go for it when you're heading out to the mall for holiday shopping. There's a new report that lists the germiest places at the mall and here they are:
Food Court tables
What's worse is that it's the clothes you're trying on is what makes fitting rooms filthy. They say people's dead skin and sweat that left behind after they try on clothes are perfect breeding grounds for bacteria growth. YUCK!
Apologies if you were eating food and reading this.
