Just mix in some bleach and it works even better. An acid and a base mixed does something.

Luckily the cure for methanol poisoning is to drink more alcohol.
You just need to start with the methanol. Like the phrase "beer before liquor, never been sicker. Liquor before beer, have no fear." Just remember "methanol before ethanol, no worry at all. Ethanol before methanol, out your ass your liver will fall. "

How much farking methanol would you have to rub onto your body to get sick?
I use that stuff all the time as a solvent in my garage.

To be fair I did research this.

our best-selling gel hand sanitizer kills 99.99% of germs with 63% ethanol alcohol

It's just above the threshold to work properly

Hand sanitizer isn't a food or drug.

But I'm sure there's another of the thousands of TLA agencies that should be blocking it.

I just want to clear something up here:

Soap absolutely does kill coronavirus.  In fact, after 15 minutes in hot, soapy water all the coronaviruses on your hands will be denatured.  The problem is that nobody washes their hands for 15 minutes. Most can't even handle a fast 20 count.  Use hand sanitizer frequently as they kill that shiat the instant it dries.

Yes, the CDC lied.  By now, you should be used to it.
 
2020-06-22 12:32:39 PM  
Yeah, I've seen the recalls in Canada and there are a few of those here also. My hand-sanitzer is not on the list. The two big bottles are good and smell fairly nice. The tiny $2.50 portable bottle is runny, smells strongly of rubbing alcohol and is way too expensive, but I bought it mainly for the bottle, so there's half the price right there.

I came up with the idea of touching the taps and light switches, etc, while my hands are soaped up, leaving a residue of soap to work while I am out of there. I also rub off the excess hand sanitizer on my keyboard.  Every little bit helps, I think. It is a game of increments.

Mind you the experts say soap and water first, then hand sanitizer when you can't use soap and water, you impetuous fools.

Well, I've always wondered why methanol wasn't used in hand sanitizer. Guess I know why it's ethanol now.

SARS and MERS gave Canada a bit of a head start on learning to deal with pandemics. We did back slide, but for a while there, the percentage of people who were washing their hands in Toronto's Lester B. Pearson airport was pushing 95%. I attribute our relatively lower death and case loads to learning.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY THAT, YANQUI.

Learning, especially the American aversion to book larnin' explains a lot of the difference within Fortress Ameriduh as well. The United States of Mexicanada are doing just fine compared to the Confederacy of Jebusland Dunces.

Obscurity is not security. Now that South America and other johnny-come-lately's are joining the Pandemic Game, that is being proven every day, in every way. You could have learned that when you bought your first Apple product instead of a PC.

Everclear, aloe and tea tree oil.

Super strong hand sanitizer.

Smells amazing too.

92% alcohol.

Kick Corona azz and give it away so we get rid of this so we can get back to living a more normal life.

Arsenic and Polonium 241 are not organic. No carbon.

They are, however, natural and that is even worse than organic. It's pure Adspeak and Baffle Gab. Not to mention Double Think and Left-Right New Agism.

Sounds delicious. Like Tide Pods.

Is it methanol or ethanol or a mixture of whatever they can get cheapest?

I'm way ahead of you on the vodak as household cleaner. It's way cheaper than Lysol spray and much of it smells lemony fresh (avoid the hot pepper brands).

I don't think of that as a Trade Secret so much as a Red trick. Like lead in the water. Russians and other Reds are really fond of lead in the water and air of poor and middle class people for some reason, just like all the Pigs. Maybe they are just fond of stunting other people's growth to match their own dwarf malignancy. Tiny tiny T. rex arms and hands. That is the Trump idea of an orange-red beauty. fark Putin, fark President Turnip Head.

Soap does not kill anything.
It washes away the virus.
Surgeons do not even wash for 15 minutes.

What in the everloving fark are you talking about? I think you must be having difficulty with minutes versus seconds. It does not take 15 minutes for warm water and mild hand soap to kill the virus.

The point of my post is that the "experts" put forth a false narrative about handwashing the same way they put out a false narrative about masks and aerosol spread.  I'm sure y'all remember a time when they told us aerosol spread was impossible under normal circumstances. We now know it is the primary mode of transmission.

I remember when going to college downtown, eating at the local sub shop, and seeing drunks outside drinking hand sanitizer. I wonder if they would be immune to the virus? lol

Good article because they include NDC number. Trying to navigate "manufactured by", "subsidiary of" and "distributed by" can be problematic by what is on the label, but the NDC number makes a match up take seconds.
I checked the gallon jug I have, and it's not on the list.
Carry on...

In a study that looked at the hand washing practices of eighth graders in Hamilton, Ontario, researchers found a typical hand washing removed between 46-60% of germs. And again, washing our hands isn't really killing those germs but rather washing them away.

NewportBarGuy: Are they all delicious?


i bought a bottle of handsan a couple of weeks ago that smells like moonshine and vanilla and baby powder. the smell is so intensely awful i literally gag when i smell it.
 
2020-06-22 1:17:53 PM  
I think I used one two days ago when I had to buy a replacement part from a computer store, bottle was for public use before using the debit machine, so I used it. I think the nerds there made it themselves.

The smell will not wash off. I can still smell it after several showers and like a dozen hand washings. Smells like some cheap ass summer camp soap or something. Touched my beard and the smells in there too even after shampoo and beard oil.

What the fark is this, am I going to die?

Do you have a citation that is actually related to and supports any of the claims you made, and perhaps isn't based on the results of a Buzzfeed quiz?
