We were in Coscto today and they had 32 oz bottles of Sanitizer. And, plenty of TP We were at Walgreens and they had a whole section of shelving out front with various brands of sanitizer, none of which I recognized. Largest size was 16 oz., most were 10 or 8.

Watching TV news this AM. Apparently several brands of sanitizer, all produced in Mexico, are toxic - made with methanol, not ethanol. Brand names were not mentioned

For those with the bulk bottles of hand sanitizer, check out the Pocket Atomizer Bottle. Three 10ml polypropylene atomizer bottles for $5. FWIW, YMMV and all that...

That is appalling. Methanol is a useful substance, but should never be inhaled (vapour) or applied directly to skin. And it isn't even an effective disinfectant!
