Is "hand sanitizer" the same as "sanitizer"?
No. Hand sanitizers, antiseptic washes and antibacterial soaps are not regulated as pesticides, because they are used to kill microbes in or on a person. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates these products. Sanitizers used on inanimate objects such as countertops and floors are regulated as pesticides.
