Just wondering which sanitizer, you guys have found to be the best yet.

The ones I have tried and remember are these…

Lifebuoy: Gel based. Very good. This is perhaps my favorite. I just wish they sold this in 5L bottles lol.
Savlon: Non-Gel. Pretty good.
Dettol: Gel based. Didn’t like it but does the job.
Microsteril: This is the one that became popular recently in my local market after local stores ran out of 3M branded units. This is shit. Smells like shit. Very hard on the hands. I bought a 500ml bottle and I just want to dump it in the toilet.
Germo-Free: I just got this from the local chemist because I just had Microsteril shit left. This is non-gel and seems much better than other non-gel solutions I have tried yet. Smells nice as well.

I have been trying to order Dabur one from Amazon for a few days now. They have three different variants. Hopefully they would get on sale in Gurgaon soon.

MRP is Rs. 420 for 500ml, but I have it for over a year, so the price would be higher now. It's good for 3 years.

It has a strong smell somewhat like thinner which initially used to make me sneeze, but I got used to it.

that's the thing. it cannot be sold for more than 250 bucks today. that's why it does not seem to be available anywhere. Grofers in fact has listed Savlon 500ml bottle at old mrp. have pinged them about it. dekhe if they bring the price down to 250 bucks. otherwise they are in violation of the current regulation.

Keep in mind that:

CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol
and i think you have to rub the sanitizer for atleast 15 seconds on your hands for it to be effective.

tbh, i don't think it even lasts for 15 seconds on your hands.
