Where you live, do you have items that you can't get at the store?

    My daughter’s university purchased hand sanitizer from a local distillery that had converted their operation. They tried it the other day, and they found it almost impossible to get the scent off their hands! She said the sanitizer smelled like vodka.

    I've used some sanitizer from a local bourbon distillery and a moonshine distillery. They definitely smell terrible.

    One of the local distilleries switched from making whiskey to producing hand sanitizer. It works really well, but my hands smell like moonshine.

    I mean, it gets the job done!

    BTW, this sanitizer does not smell like moonshine. The regular strength smells like eucalyptus, and the extra strength smells more like rosemary.

    Also, they have a spray sanitizer that smells fresh and natural that I plan to stock up on if we are going back in the classroom next year (which it's looking like we are.) Before we got sent home I was spraying a lot of Lysol. This is at least a softer scent.

    We figure the regular moonshine would work equally well as sanitizer. :p

    Are you using it externally or internally? :)
    1x I used some that smelled so nasty too. I am not sure where it came from though. What I got does smell like alcohol, but it doesn't have that "horrid" smell. I am not sure what caused that smell.
