    • This is true. An additional three people are in critical condition, according to the New Mexico Department of Health. It said all seven people drank hand sanitizer containing methanol. The cases were reported to New Mexico Poison Control over several weeks in May, and are related to alcoholism.

    • CNN will take this and blame Trump for it. Trump can cure cancer and they will literally no joke run a hit piece saying how he's costing hospitals money since they won't be able to treat cancer patients anymore when they're cured.

    • I think its ethanol is the alcohol found in many alcoholic beverages, it's safe to drink in small amount, the dangerous alcohol is methanol, which when drunk, makes you go blind, the only way to stop going blind is to drink ethanol until you pee out all the methanol, this prevents the blinding...

    • Find ethyl alcohol, grain alcohol, or ethanol only hand sanitizer. Preferably a lemon, aloe vera, or scentless one. Poor some into a large glass and dump a lot of table salt on top. DONT MIX. Poor the liquid through a coffee filter or two, will take a while, and let it set for three weeks.

    • Hand sanitizer can be made into alcohol by adding enough salt. It separates the gel from the alcohol. More than likely these were minors or broke alcoholics who couldn’t get store alcohol and decided to make their own. I had a buddy do this while in the military in the field where booze wasn’t all..
