Hand sanitizers on Yom Kippur

 Hand sanitizers on Yom Kippur



Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R. Shlomo Miller Shlita said* 
It is preferable not to use hand sanitizers on Yom Kippur.

The sanitizers contain oils glycerine etc. It might be
considered סיכה.

It is preferable to use rubbing alcohol or hydrogen
peroxide. They don't contain oils etc.

Using alcohol etc. is considered רחיצה להעביר זוהמא
washing to remove dirt (germs) which is allowed.

The גאון holds the היתר of להעביר זוהמא won't apply
to סיכה. Being סיכה has two reasons why it is אסור
1) תענוג  
2) סיכה כשתייה 
If only for the first reason then להעביר זוהמא would
be allowed since it's not done לתענוג.
The second reason of סיכה כשתייה won't allow 
להעביר זוהמא because drinking is אסור even when
it's not a תענוג.
