First, the dateline is Syracuse, NY. It’s a story about kids playing with ALCOHOL-CRAMMED hand sanitizer, and causing a nearly deadly situation; using it to start a fire in their bedroom! Cringe at the details here. https://bit.ly/2PDWr0G
Some of the blame here comes from access to the internet, with kids seeing videos of oafs their age starting fires with ALCOHOL-SPEWING hand sanitizers.
They think it is a joke. It’s NOT.
Another part of the blame is that ANY CHILD can purchase ALOCHOL-OVERLOADED hand sanitizer at virtually any store in America. There SHOULD be laws that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to buy products like that to minors.
Regrettably, it will take more injuries or deaths to make policy maker seven think about constructing laws that are truly crucial to the public’s health and safety; even when it comes to children.
Don’t look for that anytime soon, as politicians are too busy fighting over political ideology, getting reelected and having their own pockets filled in some cases.
And yes, some of the blame stems from parenting; or lack thereof.
TELL your kids how dangerous ALCOHOL-LOADED hand sanitizers truly are.
Next, here’s another fire story from Spokane Valley, Washington about TOXIC ALCOHOL hand sanitizer being misused(from of all places) vandalized portable potties. Click here and grimace again. https://bit.ly/2wJ2xFV
That story should show you the lengths some kids and adults will go in order to cause vandalism, or perhaps to get a buzz.
Parents, make certain to do just ONE piece of business today, especially if you have any ALCOHOL-BASED hand sanitizing products in your residence. Throw it away safely, lock it away or at very least, put it in a place that is totally unobtainable to young children and even teens.
The reasons are plentiful, including:
Starting FIRES with ALCOHOL-FILLED hand sanitizers and a lighter or match in your home or elsewhere
ALCOHOL-BASED hand sanitizer accidental POISONIN Gamong toddlers
ALCOHOL-LADEN hand sanitizers are used by kids, ‘tweens and teens in order to get DRUNK
Say this out loud to your kids today. “ALCOHOL hand sanitizers are FLAMMABLE and TOXIC!”
Moms, have the old man (or do it yourself if he’s mechanically- deficient) build an impenetrable locked box, storage bin, nuclear bunker or underground cave, secret staircase, safe deposit unit, hidden laboratory—anything to keep it away from them.
Poison control centers nationwide have seen increases in the number of hysterical calls from parents, because one or more of their small kids or teens got a hold of alcohol-based hand sanitizing products.
Next time you need a hand sanitizer, get one WITHOUT ALCOHOL; like the 100% ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizer—safeHands® brand.
The obvious way to sanitize your hands is to use soap and warm water. I advocate doing that first and foremost. But know that if you extremely overdo hand-washing, like using an ALCOHOL-SOURCED hand sanitizer, you can make your hands dry and produce a potential breeding-ground for germs to get trapped in cracks in your skin.
