Hand Sanitizer Makes You Drunk – Sorta!
Studies are showing that if you use hand sanitizer over and over again on your hands it's like being drunk! Sweet, now I can finally drink at work!
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 sanitizer?
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.
So what this study is saying, you will test as a drunkard, but not actually get any of the effect! LAME!
