    Hello everyone, I’m hoping someone can offer me some advice. I’ve seen some posts on facebook that hand sanitiser contains Ethylene Glycol, the stuff in antifreeze and is every toxic to pets.
    Is this true?

    It’s not poisonous. Please don’t worry. It’s a false story being shared on social media.
    Hand sanitisers contain ‘ethanol’ (alcohol), not ethylene glycol. Ethanol (alcohol) can be harmful if ingested in a large quantity (i.e. an entire bottle), but it evaporates quickly and IS NOT HARMFUL if it’s licked in small quantities from your skin, or your pet’s fur. Please do not let this false information put you off using hand sanitiser products at this critical time.
