Why Do Hand Sanitizers Suddenly Smell So Awful?

1 Share

At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic—just before the peak of rabid stockpiling, when toilet paper attained currency-level value—I placed an order from one of the few online sellers still offering hand sanitizer. It was an online retailer specializing in bulk apothecary supplies, and I had to wait over two months for the delivery of an industrial-size, 1-gallon plastic bottle containing 70% ethyl alcohol “specially denatured with a mild lavender scent.”
