Washing hands with Hand Sanitizer vs. Washing hands with Soap and Water, What's better

It is common to see hand sanitizer dispensers in public places and mothers of small children carrying them around, but does it really substituting washing hands with soap and water good for you?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention CDC and the Food and Drug Administration FDA state that washing hands with water and soap is the best way to reduce the number of microbes and hand sanitizers maybe used as supplements but no as a substitute. The reason  is that alcohol-based sanitizers  may not be as effective because people may not use a large amount and may wipe it off before it has dried. Also, water and soap are more effective in removing certain kind of germs such as Cryptosporidium, norovirus, and Clostridium difficile. besides, Hands sanitizers are not as effective when hands are visibly dirty or greasy.
