    Hand Sanitizer for Care Package

    Advertisements
    So, has anyone sent hand sanitizer in a care package? My husband never asks for anything when deployed but, he is in Africa and asked for hand sanitizer. So, it says you can't send it with alcohol in it due to its flammable. Has anyone ignored this and sent it and has anyone sent alcohol-free and been successful?

    It is kind of frustrating... I get it but, I want him to have what he needs while he is over there.

    I have a care package ready to go on Monday with lots of food items and hygiene products as well as a Christmas letter/card for him. I just don't want to put it in there with that stuff and have him not get any of it.

    Fun times....

    Thank you!

    When DH was in Afghanistan I sent alcohol free hand sanitizer but I also sent the individually wrapped sanitizing wipes ... those had alcohol in them and there wasn't a problem. To be on the safe side I would probably just go alcohol-free though.

    I'd send the alcohol-free kind anyway as the alcohol can sting if your DH has any cuts on his hands! I never sent any but if I did I'd also make sure to wrap it inside of a plastic bag in case it exploded.

    I didn't list it specifically I just wrote "toiletries" on the form.
