Can hand sanitizer with 70% ethyl alcohol kill sperm cells on my hands immediately on contact? Will it kill all of them? How fast does it kill them?

In brief: Hand sanitizer

Hand sanitizer helps reduce bacteria on your hands, but doesn't sterilize them completely.
Soap and water is more likely to clear semen from your hands.
