Company warns their vodka can't act as hand sanitizer

Share

Leave the poor Tito's Vodka social media team in peace, wash your hands, and have a nice Corona this weekend, because, once again, they have nothing to do with this mess.

For those wondering if you can make your own, yes you can, and according to the CDC to be effective hand sanitizers must contain at least 60% alcohol to be effective.

"I worry about people making their own sanitizer as it will be hard to make sure that the concentrations are correct", Daniel Parker, an assistant professor of public health at the University of California, Irvine, told CNN.

Tito's Vodka gave the same reply to several other savvy users who were using the brand to make their homemade sanitizer gel. But googler beware: If that recipe calls for using vodka to kill germs, it's probably not going to do anything. It posted, "Per the CDC, hand sanitizer needs to contain at least 60% alcohol". As the Dallas Morning News pointed, Texas-based liquor brand Tito's Handmade Vodka has taken to combatting misinformation on social media. See attached for more information.

The incident occurred in an area behind the dugouts which holds a corporate section. "I don't think that belongs to the game". Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho told reporters he didn't necessarily blame Dier for his actions.

Because the model identified, "per the CDC, hand sanitizer must comprise not less than 60% alcohol".

DiFurio wrote, "Tito's Vodka has spent the last 24 hours explaining to people that it *cannot* be used as a replacement for hand sanitizer". But is making your own hand sanitizer a good way to guard against the coronavirus?

"Others told Tito's they should capitalize on the outbreak, with one lady telling the firm, "@TitosVodka you're missing some advertising opportunities with recipes for homemade hand sanitizer.just saying".

I just wonder before the coronavirus, did people not wash their hands? Greetings to Tito's vodka. The public health institute recommends "washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands".
