Yeah, that's just what they want you to do.

Kids, this is why you don't methyl with your ethyl...

Or just maybe the manufacturers could stop using methanol just because it's cheaper.
 
2020-08-06 6:43:07 AM  
Really, people. It's injectable only.

This.
Using it topically, as intended, will make you sick too. It's methanol, FFS.

Or...we could be a civilized country and have ETHANOL hand sanitizer without denaturing to prevent kids and idiots from drinking it (who will end up drinking it anyways).

Especially considering it's so expensive.
Which I don't get.
It's actually cheaper to buy Everclear.
WTH is going on?

I eagerly await the administration's response from Steve Bannon explaining how if you all weren't such lame squares and could just be cool for a minute, you can build up some capacity.

But why? There are $1.37 6.0 beer.

And 15 packs of 8.0 beer. That are only 10 and tax.
WTF?

Denaturing products because reasons (won't someone think of the children and the alcoholics) has been a thing in America forever.

If there's one thing we need in this world, it is free markets. And by free markets, I mean allowing nature to collect its toll from the idiots with no interference or tax from the government. Stay out of it, gubmint.

The victims are not buying the hand sanitizer. They are getting it from free handouts or swiping it from a public source.

whosits_112: If you are dumb enough to drink hand sanitizer...


not saying I drink it but several distilleries here have been making sanitizer on the side that they give to hospitals and first responders. sounded like ever clear mixed with aloe which sounds gross but not poisonous if I was following the discussion. I guess you can poison yourself with alcohol but hopefully you know what I meant.

You've never been around a desperate alcoholic if you ask that, and liquor stores generally aren't open 24/7.

No that is not why ethanol is denatured. It has nothing to do with the nanny state and it does not protect alcoholics or children. It is all about tax policy.  Countries that do not tax alcohol have no need for the denatured form.

Noah_Tall: Or just maybe the manufacturers could stop using methanol just because it's cheaper.


I'm fairly certain that the reason for its use is not the cost, but that to use the less-poisonous ethanol would render it subject to additional taxes.

That's ok but Tide Pods are dangerous?

So why don't we color it like some other countries. Well it's convenient to prevent confusion but people will drink it anyway. Why don't we use other less toxic agents that cause nausea instead of blindness. Because the methanol is EXTREMELY difficult  to remove.  You tax cheaters will find a way to remove many other denaturing additives that could be used.

Uh....doesn't cheaply, sloppily produced ethanol often have methanol in it, without anyone deliberately "denaturing" it?
I thought that was the problem with the cheap sanitizer from that one Mexican outfit.

Swill's refreshing; it's low in calories; and Swill helps wash down a hearty meal like this that tends to just lay in your stomach.
