The world is full of great rivalries. In the germ-fighting game, its anti-bacterial versus anti-microbial. In fact, the terms anti-bacterial and anti-microbial are commonly interchanged, when in fact they have very different meanings!

 The primary difference between anti-bacterial and anti-microbial substances is the types of microorganism they act upon. While anti-bacterial products prevent the development of bacteria, anti-microbial agents such as alcohol-based hand sanitizers prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and some viruses.

 Which one is better? The answer is: it depends.

 Let’s turn to some experts to help clarify.
