Germs, bugs, microbes, bacteria—no matter what you call them, they’re everywhere. They can be found living on our skin, cell phones, keyboards, door handles, and elsewhere. From a young age, we are taught the importance of washing our hands. The manual removal of bacteria using soap and warm water is still the number one defense mechanism against bacteria and germs that make us sick. While we are out and about, at school, at work, or in public places, we come in contact with millions of these tiny microorganisms, some of which may be harmful. At times, we may not have access to soap and water, so a portable, easy-to-carry sanitizer can often come in handy.

Ethyl alcohol is what gives this mist its sanitizing properties, killing 99.9 percent of germs. It does this by clumping and denaturing important bacterial proteins, eventually causing these harmful cells to burst open.5
