Do you have to remove fingernail polish prior to surgery?
I have had 5 surgeries and was told to take it off for all of them
No, hand sanitizer will not remove nail polish. Hand sanitizer is made up of mostly alcohol, an ingredient that kills germs. Nail polish needs something strong such as acetone or an acetone alternative, like ethyl acetate to remove it. Alcohol, when used on a clean nail prior to polishing, actually makes the nail polish adhere better because it cleans the surface of the nail!
