  After all, we haven't found an appropriate way to get rid of the current pandemic. Thus, we have to be alert adequately to protect ourselves and our family members from its harmful effects. There are various complications associated to our chosen preventive tools against this virus. For an example- proper storage and use of hand sanitizers. Acute and long-term toxic effects of the ingredients used in hand sanitizers have been shown in table 1.
