    No, it is VERY toxic, it is a different form of alcohol to that in alcoholic drinks. I am also sure I have seen somewhere it contains additives to give it an unpleasant taste, to hopefully stop unwise people from ingesting a dangerous dose.

      It is possible to get intoxicated by drinking hand sanitizer made using ethyl alcohol or ethanol. Other types of alcohol may be used as a disinfectant in hand sanitizer, including isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol.

    No!   Hand sanitizer contains wood alcohol, which can cause you go blind!

    I think you drank some hand sanitizer before asking this question.

    That is not a good idea, hand sanitizer is not good alcohol.

    Only if you can prove you're Canadian. On the other hand, that kinda does prove you're Canadian, eh?

    Yes but cut it with some other liquid like Pepsi or Coke.

    I hear trump supporters have been doing that as they wait for moonshine to distill.

    Actually, that is popular on a Native American reservation near here where alcohol is illegal. You can also drink pure vanilla extract (not the artificial stuff) or hairspray if you’re really hard up.
