Frozen Hand Sanitizer Is Bad Hand Sanitizer

The weather is getting colder throughout much of the northern half of the United States. And as the temperatures freeze so do a variety of other things. However, hand sanitizer should not be at risk of freezing unless its not made with sufficient ingredients, reports Fox 56.

Properly-Constructed hand sanitizers should be able to hold up to temperatures above -50 degrees. If a hand sanitizer does freeze that means it doesn’t have high enough alcohol content, according to Dr. Jodi Lenko, vice chair of the Department of Medicine at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Hazleton in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. In that case, any hand sanitizer that is frozen probably wasn’t worth using in the first place.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused the supply of hand sanitizer to plunge in the United States throughout much of the first half of 2020. As a result, those who normally wouldn’t make hand sanitizer were mixing up emergency supplies. Also, hand sanitizers made in countries where restrictions are more lax have also made their way into American homes. All of this has led to reports of defective hand sanitizer.
