Why does hand sanitizer only kill '99.9%' of germs?
On hand sanitizer, or achohal swabs say they only kill '99.9%' of bacteria or germs, whats the other '0.1%' of bacteria can't it kill?

Stubby hashbrown
that stuff is loserish

Nothing is perfect.

hand sanitizer can't be exact. it's impossible for all the germs on your hand to be gone.

They don't want to make false promises that they always kill everything bad. Also, there are a tiniest amount of germs you don't want to kill.

plant a tree
to cover their butts...or perhaps they are taking into account all the germs they have yet to discover?

Its just to say that most bacteria will be killed, but not all of it. Just the companies way of protecting itself, and the fact that there are so many differnt kinds of bacteria that regular hand sanitizer can't kill every kind.

that's been bothering me too

In all probability you can't kill 100% of things. Luckily for you! That .01% of whatever it's not killing is a breeding little germ/bacteria that is immune to the alcohol stuff. So you're cross selecting for a lovely super germfest on going on on your hands! Whoever shakes your hand next is a very (un)lucky person!

Hand Sanitizers are complete BS and they contain carconogenics.

It probably CAN kill all the normal bacteria, but they can't claim that it kills 100% because some idiot would find one bacteria that the stuff missed, and sue for false advertising

So they can't get sued if their sanitizer doesn't work properly...

Double Tech
It's to give it a probable warning to people that there might be some bacteria out there that can't be killed with alcohol.

Legal reasons. If they say 100% and even one germ survives, then we could sue.

The reason why science exists is because we haven't solved everything yet. Germs are microscopic, and it was only very recently that they discovered an actual cure for viruses and germs. You should be glad, not critizing, of the '99.9%' on your hand sanitizer.
