Similarly, news of fake hand sanitizers has also been circulating the net. People have been coming across duplicate products and have been complaining about them also.
Not only these products are a health hazard but they are also overpriced.
Overpriced fake hand sanitizers burn skin
A Twitter user recently tweeted out a horrible experience where they used fake hand sanitizer and unfortunately went a little to close to the burning stove.
This lady applied sanitizer on her hands & arms & went to the kitchen to cook. As she turned on the stove, her hands caught FIRE due to alcohol contained in sanitizer!
ہاتھوں پر sanitizer لگائے ہرگز چولہےکے قریب نہ جائیے!

In these horrible and uncertain circumstances, people are advised to buy such products with caution. These products are known to have a quantity of alcohol, and if added in excess can cause some serious damage to one’s health.
Moreover, it can be a wise decision to use homemade products. But not all DIY ways to make sanitizers aren’t genuine. Look for approved DIY recipes and help your family and loved ones fight this viral attack.
