Another household product to worry about - hand sanitizer.

I recently saw a news report about teens with alcohol poisoning after separating the alcohol from the gel. Teens may feel a benign product like hand sanitizer is safe and try it since it is easily available.

Have you heard about this? Bring this up at dinner tonight, another opportunity to bring up this serious, risky behavior and other trends in the news lately.
