    About how long should I wait before I eat after putting hand sanitizer on

    About how long should I wait before I eat after putting hand sanitizer on to ensure that no hand sanitizer gets the food I eat?

    I reckon just until the sanitizer has dried all the way from your hands. As long as none of the "wetness" from the sanitizer gets on your food your fine. (as far as I know)
    I believe most of the alcohol evaporates away pretty quickly.

    not long, like chocolate said it evaporates pretty quickly. If your hands feel dry you are ok.
