    Shoppers should be aware of the basic ingredients in their sanitizers

    There’s a scientific reason your hand sanitizer may smell like crap.

    At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Americans flocked to stores to stock up on cleaning essentials, leaving shelves barren of everyday disinfectants, cleaning supplies and sanitizer.

    Then distilleries and other manufacturers stepped in to help with the shortage, creating brands unrecognizable from household names like Purell or Germ-X, many of which boast bold odors.

    The distinct often tequila-like smells are a natural byproduct of ethanol, or ethyl alcohol, a main germ-killing ingredient, according to a report from the New York Times’s Wirecutter.

    Many commonly used sanitizers are made with ethyl alcohol or a close substitute.

    I'm sure some have tried it. I watched an uncle drink rubbing alcohol when I was about 8 years old. He was an alcoholic. That morning he beat the crap out of his son. I hid under the bed. He blamed us for drinking all his booze. We didn't of course but he was a bad guy and blamed the world for his problems. With nothing else to drink he downed the whole bottle of the rubbing alcohol and still lived. I guess people like him are the reasons for all the warning labels.

    Your uncle probably drank rubbing alcohol made from ethyl alcohol . If he’d have drunk isopropyl it would have killed him . It’s not a good idea to drink rubbing alcohol made from ethyl alcohol either . The USA govt deliberately poisons it a little to prevent alcoholics from drinking it. It will make you sick.
