Yes they are meant to kill germs on your hands, but there are actually other uses for hand sanitizers besides cleaning your hands. Here are five other things you can use this on-the-go product for that you might not have thought of:

hand sanitizer


It doesn’t matter what object you need to deodorize, because hand sanitizer has you covered. You should always do a test patch when using this on new items, so the colour isn’t affected. That being said, grab those old shoes, your gross yoga mat or anything that just smells and get to work.


The next time you feel a blemish coming on, it’s time to use your hand sanitizer. Okay, this sounds insane, but you can dab a little Lavender Hand Sanitizer on the spot. The combination of alcohol and Lavender will give you relief.


You can use sanitizers to refresh your personal odour anytime you’re in a jam. We wouldn’t recommend switching out your daily scent of cucumber melon, but in a pinch, this can save the day.


All you need is a spritz of sanitizer and a spilled cup of coffee, a gross car cupholder, or just a dirty desk, can be as good as new. You should do a test spot before going full-on cleaning mode because you wouldn’t want to ruin any of your sweaters or car seats, or whatever you’re spritzing.


Last but not least, hand sanitizer can be used to clean away smudges on glass surfaces. Yes, this means your precious iPhone or computer screen can be smudge free with a simple spray and wipe. Oh, and you could use it on your actual windows as well, which is pretty impressive.
