Getting sick is easy but avoiding it is a whole other story. One of the biggest traps for germs and viruses are your hands. Because its unavoidable to touch things throughout the day, you are exceedingly susceptible to getting germs and viruses on your hands. Doorknobs, handles, faucets, your office keyboard, your steering wheel, your cellphone, and many things you touch throughout the day are infested with germs and potential viruses that you could become exposed to.

That's why the CDC recommends keeping your hands clean, along with frequently touched surfaces, as well as avoiding close contact with others and touching your face. While washing your hands, again and again, can be tedious, using a good hand sanitizer can help you kill germs on your hands, and you can conveniently keep a bottle in every room of your home. There are a ton of hand sanitizers on the market that do a good job of killing germs but not all are equal.

Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer is one of the most popular brands of hand sanitizers. An 8oz container is only between $3 and $4 at most stores. A travel-size hand sanitizer is about $2 which you can keep in your purse, drawer or glove compartment. Purell claims there is a 24 percent reduction in healthcare claims thanks to their product. The mild formula features four different moisturizers to prevent over-drying and there are no triclosan, parabens, phthalates, and preservatives to cause irritation. A version featuring aloe provides healing and additional moisture.

One high-end sanitizer option is the AESOP Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash. At $10 for a 1.7oz bottle, it's not the most affordable option but it features an effective alcohol-based formula that purifies and hydrates. Natural ingredients include Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf, and Cedar Atlas for scent. A 16.7oz bottle is available for $47.

In addition to these options, there are a wide variety of organic hand sanitizers. The Honest hand sanitizer spray features a plant-based formula with a mild lavender scent. Aloe provides softness and moisture. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. Get a bottle for under $3. A similar hand sanitizer is the Dr. Bronner's Organic Hand Sanitizer for $5 which features organic lavender oil. EO (Essential Oils) hand sanitizer sprays are available in a variety of scents including sweet orange, lavender, and peppermint. A bottle costs around $5.

Kids are probably the biggest Petri dishes when it comes to germs. And when they come home from school, they carry the germs of all the other kids they come in contact with. Many sanitizers are too harsh for babies and children but brands like Baby Bum are not. The Baby Bum hand sanitizer is 62% alcohol and is formulated with coconut oil, as well as cucumber and banana extract. A spray bottle costs only $4. Babyganics Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer is ideal for babies and those with sensitive skin due to the lack of alcohol. A fragrance-free and mandarin scented formula is available for around $5 per bottle.
