Handwash and hand sanitiser/sanitizer are different things. Handwash is made of soap or soap substitute. You use it with water to wash off dirt and debris and to get your hands visibly clean. Hand sanitiser often contains alcohol and may be used on dry, clean hands. It contains an antibacterial agent and protects against infection and the spread of 'germs'.
