A report featured on the Today show yesterday brought attention to how this trend is becoming popular with teenagers. Six separate incidents in LA over the weekend of alcohol poisoning as a result of alcohol based hand sanitizer ingestion were reported and parents are blaming the interweb and youtube. Apparently teens are downloading recipes and learning techniques for distilling the alcohol from the hand sanitizer into a 120 proof shot.
Crazy teens...such determination and ambition when they apply themselves!
But this is no joke. Alcohol based hand sanitizers can be dangerous in the wrong environment including the home. Schools, rehabilitation facilities, prison systems, hospitals, day care centers...all of these could be considered potentially harmful places to have alcohol based gels readily available.
Any expert will tell you that in questionable surroundings where alcohol based gels might not be appropriate, an alcohol-free foaming hand sanitizer is a better solution. Luckily for you, Zogics makes the most cost effective and amazing alcohol free hand sanitizer around. You can find out more here or give us a call at 888.623.0088. We're always happy to help!
