Subject: Hand sanitizer

Hand sanitizer

From: Isobel Griffin <i.griffin<-at->

The book-handlers in our library have asked whether it is acceptable
to apply antibacterial hand gels and then handle books.  I'm
inclined to think that it is probably not a good idea, as the gels
could contain traces of materials that might stain the books, but I
wondered if anyone else has a view on this?
