Hand sanitizer production halted as FDA stands in the way...
Unfortunately, the United States leads the world in COVID-19 cases, partially due to government failure and partially due to circumstances beyond the control of government. Fortunately, the private sector has stepped up to the plate by increasing production of ventilators, face masks, and much-needed hand sanitizers. In fact, more than 575 distilleries have committed to converting their operations from making alcoholic beverages to producing alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
However, in yet another case of regulations run wild, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is inserting a wrench in “Operation Hand Sanitizer.” In other words, FDA bureaucrats are halting the production of millions of bottles of hand sanitizer to communities in need.
I mentioned this a while ago the biggest obstacle to doing anything in the US is government regulation. This is also the reason that we find ourselves in this present crises, it was easier to start production plants outside of the US than at home so when business started to grow they moved to foreign countries.
Okay ... well, of course that’s stupid.
Since I make my own sanitizer and spray
AND Since Recipes are NOT Patentable or ... Illegal
Perhaps the Distilleries could make “Medicinal” Alcohol and include a “recipe” ...
I currently use a Brand Name 95% Grain Alcohol commonly found in Liquor Stores because other types were a pain to track down.
I combine in a clean glass “Master Bottle” (Brer Rabbit Molasses)
Approximately 10% Concentrated Bleach found in laundry or construction cleaning supplies
A splash of Lemon Pine Sol to a Pint Bottle is my choice.
The Dollar Store or any Cosmetic place will sell spritzers ... spray surfaces, spray on hands and wipe dry
Its pretty ferocious and hasn’t hurt my skin yet ...
Since I’m using Legal Booze, the Alcohol costs a bit but personally, I think I’m worth it.
Besides, I drink stuff that costs a good deal more than that stuff ...
Okay now Ikm going to post this on its own ...
