Using Hand Sanitizer Can Make You Test Positive For Alcohol
More and more useful information is coming out about hand sanitizer. For instance, hand santizer doesn't work and you should wash your hands instead. It's true! Here is another study from Gainesville Sun, keeping your hands obsessively sanitized is like . . . GETTING DRUNK.
Researchers at the University of Florida found that people who use a lot of hand sanitizer can actually test positive for alcohol consumption in some tests . . . even if they haven't actually had any beer, wine, or liquor. Does this mean that you could get arrested for using to much hand santizer?
Hand sanitizer won't show up in a test that only checks your blood-alcohol level for the past few hours, like a breathalyzer or blood test. And it probably won't show up even if you sanitize your hands a few times a day.
But if you sanitize a LOT, and you take pee tests which can show alcohol consumption for up to five days . . . you might show a false positive.
