  • It helps kill bacteria and viruses,

  • and it can even be set on fire.

  • This is hand sanitizer.

  • This gooey substance

  • is normally meant for the hands,

  • but what if

  • we covered our bodies in it?

  • Specifically, by jumping into a pool

  • full of hand sanitizer?

  • Hand sanitizer is made up of a huge list of chemicals,

  • from things that make it a gel

  • to the moisturizers and lubricants.

  • But its main ingredient

  • is ethanol.

  • This is what kills the germs on your hands.

  • In order to be truly effective,

  • it should have over 60% ethanol.

  • So to kill all the deadly viruses on our bodies,

  • let's use something stronger.

  • A 95% concentration of ethanol.

  • Okay now that we've chosen our hand sanitizer,

  • what happens if we jump into a pool full of it?

  • As soon as you jump in,

  • any cuts or open wounds you might have

  • would immediately begin to sting.

  • Have you ever had a hangnail on your finger and used hand sanitizer?

  • Remember how much that hurt?

  • Now imagine the alcohol

  • and other chemicals attacking every cut

  • or scratch you might have on your body.

  • Ouch!

  • If you don't have too many of those,

  • you'll be able to swim around in our pool full of hand sanitizer.

  • But swimming in something like this

  • would be more like swimming in jelly than water.

  • This gel substance

  • would be a gloppy, thick mess to swim through.

  • And if you dunked your head into it,

  • it would fill your ears,

  • nose, and any other crevice it can make its way into.

  • And while you're under there,

  • don't try opening your eyes.

  • If you do,

  • you'll immediately feel severe pain from the hand sanitizer.

  • And if you don't wash it out immediately,

  • you could go blind.

  • Yeah, alcohol is not good for the eyes.

  • And let's hope you don't swallow any of this stuff.

  • If you did, it would taste pretty disgusting,

  • like an incredibly harsh alcohol with a strong chemical taste.

  • And if you drank enough of it,

  • you would be extremely intoxicated.

  • That's because a 240 ml (8 oz) bottle of hand sanitizer

  • contains the same amount of alcohol as about

  • five shots of hard liquor.

  • Luckily, swallowing it is avoidable.

  • What isn't is the damage these chemicals

  • would be doing to your skin while you're in there.

  • If you're in this hand sanitizer long enough,

  • it could filter through your skin and get into your bloodstream.

  • The reason why we can put hand sanitizer

  • on our hands is that they have tougher skin than other parts of our body.

  • The skin on places like our faces

  • and butts is pretty weak and soft.

  • So if your entire body was marinating in hand sanitizer,

  • it could lead to alcohol poisoning.

  • And we know that hand sanitizer's purpose is to kill bacteria.

  • But it gets rid of both the bad

  • and good germs.

  • Having small doses on your hands is OK,

  • but spreading it all over your body would kill

  • a lot of the good bacteria you have on it.

  • This could make you very sick, or even kill you.

  • And hopefully, you won't have any smokers standing nearby.

  • Because if they happen to drop a match or a lighter into the pool,

  • the hand sanitizier would instantly burst into flames,

  • and quickly kill you.

  • But if you managed to survive all this,

  • and made it out of the pool,

  • you'd need to shower immediately.

  • And after that, your skin would begin to feel tight and dry.

  • It would start to crack, and bleed,

  • and be incredibly painful.

  • Let's hope you have another pool of skin lotion to jump into.

  • So it's pretty clear that hand sanitizer is

  • only good in small doses, and

  • only on our hands.

  • Besides, if you really want to kill bacteria,

  • just wash your hands.

  • Trust me.

  • It's a lot safer, cheaper, and healthier.

  • And because washing your hands is so good for you,

  • why don't we try something really dumb,

  • and not wash them for an entire year?

  • That's a story for another, WHAT IF.

It helps kill bacteria and viruses,
