Here's something you might not know. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers stop protecting your skin after only sixty seconds. Once the sanitizer has dried on your hands, it loses its antibacterial power, rendering you susceptible to all things germy and icky. Steritize ($12), on the other hand, is an alcohol-free sanitizer that maintains its germ-fighting abilities for up to four hours. Just one pump of the foam into the palm of your hand will kill 99.99% of all germs, including H1N1, norovirus strain calicivirus, and Herpes simplex virus type 1. It dries in fifteen seconds even without the frantic hand wave you see women doing in the bathroom after washing their hands when there aren't paper towels around. The initial smell of peppermint doesn't last, though we wish it did. And so far, none of the kids or adults in our house have gotten sick since Steritize found permanent residence on the kitchen counter. And that's saying something when your two-year-old thinks hand washing is code for "playtime".
