A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Some concerned parents reached out to Toledo News Now, upset after they said their children's teachers were encouraging the use of hand sanitizer over soap.
Doctor Colleen Olson with Mercy Pediatrics in Perrysburg says hand sanitizer is not as effective as soap and water.
"It's [hand sanitizer] only effective if you use enough, and it's only effective if you have an alcohol content of 60-95-percent, and if you allow your hands to dry for about 30 seconds before doing anything else. That's when the hand sanitizers will work the best," said Olson.
Doctor Olson says soap and water should always be used when hands are soiled. She also says whether or not the soap is antibacterial doesn't matter; both are effective.
Of course, Olson says, if hand sanitizer is the only option, it should be used.
