IMPORTANT – THIS HAND SANITISER HAS EXPIRED IN MAY 2021
Is it safe to use expired hand sanitizer?
If you’ve realized you’ve been using hand sanitizer that’s past its use by date, don’t worry?it’s not a massive issue, and it’s definitely not harmful. “Expired hand sanitizer isn’t dangerous,” Dobos says. “But it is less effective.”
And it’s better to use expired hand sanitizer than nothing at all?a situation Dobos has found herself in. “When hiking or at the park with my kids, when there’s nothing to wash our hands with?especially in winter when the water is turned off?expired hand sanitizer is definitely better than nothing,” she says.
Expired hand sanitizer may be less effective because the disinfectant properties are weaker, but the physical motions you go through to apply it (known as mechanical washing) is still a plus, Dobos adds. “Since hand sanitizers also contain some glycerol (or aloe), this helps break up dirt with mechanical washing,” she explains.
Schreiber advises using your best judgment. “If a bottle has never been opened, but is near or past its expiration date, it’s likely to be OK,” he says.
