This is why I donít like using the stuff. Iíd much rather have hand washing stations everywhere and just wash my hands a lot.

Thanks for posting this. Iíll check all my little bottles today.

Two shortcuts

That's a nine page list, so two shortcuts.

1. One of the manufacturers is Greenbrier International. That's Dollar Tree. So if you bought hand sanitizer from Dollar Tree, I'd check the sanitizer against the list.

2. Check your labels for "Made in Mexico." All of the sanitizers on the list were made there. Assuming, of course, that all sanitizers are marked correctly.

Thank you for posting this. One that I bought in BJs is on the list. Luckily we have not used it yet!

Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer-Dollar Tree

Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer is also a product sold at Dollar Tree Stores (in CA). I hadn't seen any hand sanitizer in any store until I finally found some there a few weeks ago, so I bought two of them. Now I'm back to square one, again...

for posting this! I was going to scope out Dollar Tree, but I guess I won't now. I remember the school nurse in the fall of this last school year yanking a blue foam hand sanitizer from every classroom and replacing it with straight up Purell as the blue foam was not on an approved list.
