    I know elem kids have been hospitalized from using it and licking it. It is full of alcohol; personally I think it should be banned in elem schools. I think it has ruined kids hygeine; they no longer know how to wash hands properly b/c they think a squirt is all they need. If you are ever in an elem school watch them apply the hand san.; they squirt on the palm and never get the finger tips which is what spreads germs.

    This is why you have to keep on open dialoge with your children about what is going on at school and also what you hear on the news and news like shows (GMA, 20/20, etc).  Every generation of kids finds some crazy thing that they either sniff or ingest to get a high off of it, so this really is not a new trend in the least, just a new product that they are using.

    SOOO SOO GROSS!    

    We got an email home about 4/20... National Get High Day.... (sorry if ya missed it!)    j/k...       They were talking about it with the kids at middle school...    

    But DS in Elementary School did keep hand cleaner in his desk in 1st-2nd grade!   The kids weren't allowed to get up and wash their hands before snack - only after!!!  (The teacher was a real piece of work!)  Oh, and they ate snack ON THE FLOOR!!!!  Not kidding.  So glad those days are over!

    I think it id just sad. Sometimes I feel like when they tell it on the news it just gives kids idras to do it.

    Omg I work in a drug store. I am really tired of locking crap up!!!?!. I just had a couple kids come in buying rubbing alcohol. I'm really concerned since it was after school started. I'm looking at asking my boss to restrict certain OTC products until a student has an adult present.

     I didn't know about the filtering of it but a few years ago when my husband was a drill sergeant, every new cycle of basic training had privates getting caught being drunk on the sanitizer. ...And they were adults!
