    you eating vodka ?

  • Hand sanitizer often contains Ethanol, which is one of the core components of alcoholic beverages, and responsible for their euphorizing effect. 

    As vodka contains A LOT of ethanol, it is no wonder that it smells like hand sanitizer. 

    Don't try to drink the latter though...
