BBC reported teenagers have been using alcohol-based hand sanitizers to get drunk due to their low cost and accessibility. Experts note that consumption can lead to blindness, diarrhoea and irreversible damage to internal organs
A recent story from Mail Online reports two boys (13yrs old) who attempted to poison their teacher by pouring hand sanitiser into her daily cup of tea. The teacher ended up having to attend the doctor with stomach problems.
The damaging effects of ingesting these products are clear. For this reason, parents are warned to keep such alcohol-based products out of their homes and away from their children.
In comparison, Aquaint is so safe that it has passed UK drinking water tests, yet is antibacterial and maintains the power of these alcohol-based sanitisers.
