Hand sanitizer should be made with ethanol, not methanol. Sometimes isopropyl alcohol, is used. Drinking either won't generally kill you unless you drink more than about a cup of 100% isopropyl.

The article states these people were alcoholics.  This disease has been a huge problem in the Native American communities here.

Of course not straight like that. You gotta twist in some lemon Clorox wipe for that zesty finish and to prevent scurvy.

You can test your sanitizer for methanol by burning some of it. Blue flame is ethanol, yellow is methanol.

And no one should be using methanol in hand sanitizer.

I met a woman who drank hydrogen peroxide.

Like, on purpose.

She explained that it took her years to build up her tolerance, she started with a cap a day and ended up being able to drink a full bottle. Didn't notice if she mixed it with anything.

I remember as a kid thinking that it was brilliant, when the liquor stores closed at 11 (BC) she could go to London Drugs and get her fix.

Don't they make it with methanol specifically so it's poisonous to prevent people from drinking unlicensed alcohol?

Obviously it doesn't always deter people with severe substance abuse issues.

If only alcohol were legal and easy to get. They should legalize it and let them sell it in special stores. We could call them...liquor stores?

Government wants to add denatured alcohol to hand sanitizer:

And then at the same time, have to warn everyone that it can kill you.

Luckily the cure for methanol poisoning is to drink ethanol. So you can drink methanol, if you follow it up with some regular alchohol.
Remember the old rhyme "Liqour before beer, have no fear, beer before liqour never been sicker"? Go by "methanol before ethanol, no problem at all, ethanol before methanol, out your ass your liver will fall. "

Not sure, but wasn't there just a recall of hand sanitizers because they contained methanol? Methanol can harm you just by being absorbed through the skin.

Well, if the liquor stores closed at 11 BC, you only have to wait a few years, then buddy up with a dude named Yeshua ben Yosef.  He can hook you up.

IMHO, one of the perks of the pandemic is that more and more of the hand sanitizer is being made by distilleries, so it smells like booze.  My wife brought home some lemon-scented hand sanitizer from Trader Joe's last night that smells like you're huffing lemon vodka.

A local distillery's sanitizer smells more like young whisky.  Good stuff.

Since alcoholism is a progressive disease, it doesn't work like that. Chances are, alcoholism consumes and kills you when you're older and already have offsprings.

No... methanol can be absorbed through the skin. Also it's very toxic. Murdering people as a deterrent is flawed.

We've got some at work that smells like the funkiest white dog ever. Smells like it's about half sorghum, too.

I'm guessing they only distill it once, given the profile.

All of our federally purchased hand sanitizer at work, a few hundred gallons by the number of big bottles in every room, and it's all vodka-based. In fact the label uses the brand name of the vodka! (I can't remember the brand but it's one I recognize). The first 3-5 minutes after cleaning your hands, it smells like you've been diddling Pussy Riot.

Love the government. They put significant taxes on drinkable ethanol, so everything that isn't from a liquor store has to have deadly poison put into it. Protect those tax dollars, even if some desperate addicts have to die.

The only medical uses I've seen H2O2 applied in are the following -

1 - Cleaning/disinfecting superficial wounds.

2 - Mouthwash. Blech, but whatever.

3 - Emetic for animals that have eaten certain types of dangerous substances, because filling your stomach with foaming shiat is likely to make you puke. Be advised - medical professionals have better/safer ways to induce vomiting these days, and some poisons/situations can be worsened by vomiting.

Crazy lady who drinks H2O2 is nuts but at least she's not drinking hand sanitizer. Wonder what it'll do to her gut long-term though.
