Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizers

This past week you may have seen news coverage about teens using alcohol based hand sanitizers to get drunk and ending up with alcohol poisoning! So scary...

Six teenagers have shown up in two San Fernando Valley emergency rooms in the last few months with alcohol poisoning after drinking hand sanitizer


The liquid hand sanitizer is 62% ethyl alcohol and makes a 120-proof liquid.

Over the years there have been a variety of stories about alcohol hand sanitizer ingestion issues. We are proud to carry and offer to our Pump Station family the alcohol free CleanWell line of sanitizers and soaps. They are formulated by a physician for families to address our need for safe products for our children. CleanWell All-natural hand sanitizer is non-toxic, in fact it is less toxic than common household vinegar.

The CleanWell alcohol free products are made with thyme oil that kills germs naturally. There's no benzalkonium chloride (quaternary ammonia), which is linked to asthma and found in all other alcohol-free hand sanitizers as an alcohol substitute.
