New Uses For Hand Sanitizer

I have more than I know what do with. It makes great chain cleaner. Really excellent actually!

Anything else you can think of?

Yep, drinking hand sanitizer can be good for a buzz. Margaritas probably tastier than straight.
Drinking or using hand sanitizer with methanol can be good for toxic side effects or even The Final Buzz. https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safet...red-eskbiochem

Might be an actual normal use but.... Wiping down under and around before putting shorts on. On long days a little refresher mid day does wonders. It thins out any other creams and baums so you may have to reapply those to right after. Has supply caught up and people have extra and need a use for it or something?

Some antibacterial gel washes are better than Dawn for washing my greasy hands after working on the bike. It's the mixture of glycerin and other ingredients. The antibacterial stuff isn't really necessary.

I find wd40 to be the best grease remover when all else fails to work, but then you have to wash your hands again to remove that stuff.

Disinfects and really cleans touch screens. (Although I seem to need the latter more than the former.)

Agree and I've used a combination of both. I'm still a fan of "Fast Orange" shop hand cleaner though. They had gallon jugs with a pump at Amazon for like $4 a few years ago. I have enough to last my lifetime.

If it sits too long it starts to separate.
