We all know what hand sanitizers are! Pretty harmless right? Wrong!! Kids are using them to get drunk!
Some hand sanitizers contain 45-95 percent of alcohol. So 2-3 squirts in some cases can cause alcohol poisoning. In comparison, beer or wine only contains anywhere from 12% – 5 % percent of alcohol. So that’s a huge difference. Plus, companies are making these sanitizers so enticing with their frangrances. For instance, strawberry and cream, orange popsicle. It just smells delicious, but it’s extremely harmful to a child. Causing some fairly serious side effects like confusion, vomiting, drowsiness, and in severe cases a child can stop breathing.
