Yes hand sanitizer can clean wounds.

The hand sanitizer is a good wound cleaning product because the alcohol in the hand sanitizer helps to kill bacteria that could lead to infection.

You might notice a bit of stinging of the wound if you do use hand sanitizer to clean the wound but the stinging should not last long.

I have used hand sanitizer to clean my wounds and it did sting some but only for a few minutes.

The hand sanitizer kills off bacteria that could lead to infection and helps the wound heal faster as well.

You can also use hydrogen peroxide to clean out a wound and disinfect the wound as well.

But if all you have is some hand sanitizer that will work as well.
