    Hand Sanitizer Highly Flammable

    I had no idea hand sanitizer is and once near flame remains highly flammable. Multiple videos on the subject, all new to me. Here's one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZzPG4Rc5tA. Be careful out there!!

    It's way too precious to burn right now! I have been using this hack to light the occasional fire in my firepit or campsite for awhile now.

        Camping or survival tip: you can use a small amount to help start fires too.

        If you wanted to discard it, it would have to managed as a household hazardous waste. Can't be thrown in the trash.

        Not sure why this would be surprising to anyone, to be effective against Covid-19 it needs to be at least 60% alcohol. :-)

          Honestly I never thought about the flammability aspect, so much for my years of dangerous goods training,,,,
          My mother said she made some concoction out of alcohol, aloe and coconut oil.
          I told her to keep it away from the gas burners on her stove.

            Don't sanitize after plopping your steaks on the grill and then immediately add a chunk of wood to the glowing red hot coals.

            What struck me was not its flammability (given its alcohol content) but rather its apparent inertness after being ignited. The latter leads to the potential Huskee moment.
