What is the best way to use Drivergent Hand Sanitizer?
Drivergent Hand Sanitizer is a liquid consistency, 80% ethanol alcohol antiseptic hand sanitizer. It is not the thicker gel consistency you may be more familiar with.
Our hand sanitizer can be poured directly from our bottles, or used to refill your own containers to be used at home or taken with you. As this is a liquid product, it can be applied on your hands by three main methods:
- Poured directly from a container
- Dispensed from a bottle pump
- Dispensed from a spray bottle

This type of liquid hand sanitizer may be different than products you’re accustomed to – such as its consistency and scent. Check out our FAQ Page to learn much more about our product and answer commonly asked questions.
How much hand sanitizer should you use?
Researchers have found that, in order to sufficiently cover both the palms and backs of the hands, people should use 6-8mL (0.25oz) of sanitizer. That amount would provide roughly 90%+ coverage of the total hand area.
These findings align with the World Health Organization’s recommendation to use a “palmful” of sanitizer, not merely a dime-sized drop. Additionally, they note that sanitizer needs to be in contact with the hands for at least 10-15 seconds to be effective.
Hand sanitizer bottles come in a variety of volumes, but many carry sizes commonly found are 2 fluid ounces (59 mL). If people used 3 mL each time, then the bottle would run out on the 20th application. If you are getting more than 20 uses out of these bottles, then it’s likely that your hands are not as clean as you thought.
