Purell Hand

Is Purell hand sanitizer a replacement for washing your hands?

I'm pretty sure Purell isn't the same as soap and water (correct me if I'm wrong), but my friend has started using just hand sanitizer after the bathroom without washing her hands. How can I convince her that there's a difference, if there is one?

Hand sanitizer is NOT a replacement for hand washing with soap and water.

Alcohol based gels do kill most bacteria, fungus, and viruses but it is only meant as a temporary measure when water and soap is not available.

When you wash your hands you should always use soap and warm running water, and vigorously rub both sides of your hands getting between your fingers, your finger nails, and your wrists for at least 20 seconds.

And then don't turn off the water yet, dry your hands with a paper towel and then use that same paper towel to turn off the water; think about it your hands were dirty when you turned the water on by touching/gripping the faucet nobs/levers and then you washed them clean... so if you touch them again your hands will be dirty again.
