 I didn't know about the filtering of it but a few years ago when my husband was a drill sergeant, every new cycle of basic training had privates getting caught being drunk on the sanitizer. ...And they were adults!

Yes, I have heard of it. And I have spoken to my boys about it and the dangers of other things that are floating around.

I know elem kids have been hospitalized from using it and licking it. It is full of alcohol; personally I think it should be banned in elem schools. I think it has ruined kids hygeine; they no longer know how to wash hands properly b/c they think a squirt is all they need. If you are ever in an elem school watch them apply the hand san.; they squirt on the palm and never get the finger tips which is what spreads germs.

I am in agreement. When my boys were in prek and kinder. the teachers would squirt it on their hands as they were going to lunch, INSTEAD of making them wash with soap and water in the restroom before hitting the lunch room. My boys would ask to walk to the restroom and wash their hands really good.

This is why you have to keep on open dialoge with your children about what is going on at school and also what you hear on the news and news like shows (GMA, 20/20, etc).  Every generation of kids finds some crazy thing that they either sniff or ingest to get a high off of it, so this really is not a new trend in the least, just a new product that they are using.

Very true and I couldn;t agree more about keeping an open dialogue with the kids. And who knew you kept up on the news and stuff living under your rock, lol.

That is truly sad! I don't like hand sanitizers for other reasons, but this takes the cake. *sigh*
