Meself? I don't like it!
Pardon me if this has already been covered, but I didn't want to read thru 4 pages to find out.
I DON'T LIKE HAND SANITIZER!
It kills the microbes, maybe, but the shit is still there!
Go to the back yard and pick up a steamin' Dog Turd. Take it inside. You could treat it with:
A) UV Light (like much of the bottled water you buy), or
B) Heat (bake it in the oven) or
C) Alcohol (hand sanitizer)
After proper treatment, you could, theoretically, have it for dinner. I wouldn't.
When I have had hand sanitizer on river trips, many of the otherwise fine River Ratz use the sanitizer instead of proper handwashing. All those many dog turds, some big and some small, are still there on the hands, only "cleaner". Just wash 'em! These days I take two home made wishy-washies on multi-day trips. One fits in a 50 cal ammo can and resides by the groover, the other lives in a 5 gal bucket and sits by the kitchen. The spout goes up to waist height, making it easier to use.
FWIW, I think using untreated river water is just fine, as long as you allow your hands to air dry completely before eating and handling food. For the last several years, my trips have grown in size, lots of boats, lots of peeps, affording the luxuries of too much cooler space, too much ice, and too much fresh water, enough that we can use tap water for handwashing. It's Niiiiiiice!
