diy hand sanitizer recipe (+ a wee rant); shopping yesterday I politely declined to use the hand sanitizer provided by the store (I kept my gloves on purposely to avoid this scenario as my skin reacts very poorly to these chemicals); I was then forbidden from touching anything in the store & enjoyed a 'contact-less' shopping experience ... this brings us to my latest blog post: a few data points on why this scenario, and the overuse of hand sanitizer in general, is problematic; The FDA (notoriously lenient in their reporting of harms from common chemicals) has issued warnings about…
