I figured that after my Filthy Fisty photo, I should take things to the opposite extreme.

Your hands may not be as clean as you think they are. Plain soaps have minimal if any antimicrobial activity. In several clinical studies, hand washing with plain soap failed to remove bad microorganisms (pathogens). Hand washing with plain soap can actually result in an increase in bacterial counts on the skin.

Killing germs with antibacterial soap doesn't decrease your immunity or make the bacteria resistant like some claim. Although they don't cause antibiotic-resistance, they may not be as affective because there are many strains who were already resistant. Alcohol based hand sanitizers are your best bet for total microbial annihilation.

Basically it comes down to alcohol rubs and combination hand sanitizers are effective at killing germs on your hands, but not effective at removing dirt. Conversely, soap and water are very effective at cleaning dirty or soiled hands, but are not good at killing germs.
