Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer Pump Bottle
Top Questions See all 14 Q&A
My only complaint: the prices are ridiculously inconsistent. You can get a small bottle for $1.50 at most stores, and then go to a store down the block and the same exact bottle will be almost $4. I like to get the best deal possible, so this makes this product frustrating for me to buy at times.
This hand sanitizer was a lifesaver a couple years ago when my family was at our cabin on vacation when a tornado had gone through the area and wiped out our power for 10 days. Having this on hand was a piece of mine since I know that Piel is a great company with quality products so I knew that our hands were free of bacteria. When you have no running water great products like this are a huge deal.
But wait. Maybe the .01% of the Germ population are like Ninja Germs. They know how to hide, or maybe they run really really fast and somehow get everywhere the Purell isn't? Wow. So, If there are billions of Germs on my hands and this stuff leaves .01% behind... Then, well "according to the internet" (Minnesota Department of Health) there are 1,500 bacterial per square centimeter and each hand has on average 540 square centimeters. Since I have 2 hands, that means that I have about 1,620,000 germs on my hands and this stuff kills at least 1,619,838 of them. Wow, that's like a germ nuclear bomb right? Well a nuke that leaves behind 162 of the nastiest Germ Ninja's in the world. Oh, I give up, I'm just going to go out and lick handrails at the mall.
In all seriousness, I bought the value pack and they were so cheap. I don't like lugging one of these around, but I keep a little tube in the car and refill off of these larger ones. They are great, but now that I just did all that math and looking up of stats, I am a little creeped out. Enjoy your clean hands and don't let those 162 germs get you!
