    Shock Listerine & Hand Sanitizer Cocktail: Really?

    Advertisements
    It’s nothing special but it is a dangerous drink. It contains mouthwash mixed with hand sanitizer.

    Both items you can buy almost anywhere, but when mixed together it makes for a deadly combination.

    "They would simply pour it in the container or pour the hand sanitizer and drink it and share it,” said Albuquerque Police Department Deputy Chief Paul Feist.

    A bottle of hand sanitizer is the equivalent of five hard alcohol shots.

    "Mix that with 26 percent in Listerine, that's a strong cocktail," said Feist.

    APD has connected two deaths in the last five weeks to the concoction.

    Apparently it's an issue in Canada, too:

    Vancouver's Eastside Illicit Drinkers Group for Education pitches free booze to reduce rubbing alcohol consumption | News | National Post

    VANCOUVER — Rob Morgan says when you wake up after getting drunk on hand sanitizer it feels like your kidney is bulging out of your body.

    The longer you drink it, the more you see sparkling light at the edge of your eyes. That’s the first step in going blind from guzzling cheap illicit booze, the doctor tells him.

    Morgan, a First Nations man from a reserve near Terrace, B.C., hopes to reduce the harmful impact of addicts ingesting cheap, illicit alcohol by landing funding for a peer-run drinker’s lounge.
    (Read the rest at the link above.) Interesting story.
