    Virus question

    Right I may be wrong but my mind works weirdly sometimes but...
    Sanitizer gel is made up mainly from alcohol....
    Iíve heard you can clean clothes with vodka to kill bacteria....
    If you run out of sanitizer gel could you use vodka???
    And more importantly could drinking enough vodka be the key to winning the war on this virus??

    Iíll let some of you learned college types answer my question
    Is it tomfoolery or pie in the sky
    Or rather a very cunning plan?

    I believe the alcohol content in sanitzer is higher in content than drinks and only might kill all viruses best way is wash hands for a good time

    Sounds like the stuff my wife buys from Aldi she calls it vino.

    Anything above 60% proof mixed with a dollop of moisturiser and some tea tree oil does the same job apparently.

    You could use Vodka - had this convo with my dad (chemistry degree etc.) but you'd need to up the alcohol content, so you'd need to do something to the vodka.

    It's easy enough to do apparently, would just take a bit of time.

    A large Vindaloo would kill anything.

    Windscreen wiper solution contains 50% alcohol. As does purfumes and colognes.
