@germanshepherdlove,  which other thread--the one about the fitting a face mask or the one about the National Memorial Day concert?  I think those were the only other recent threads I started and both are still listed.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

That photo of the car door was not related to hand sanitizer.  It was just used as an example IF hand sanitizer exploded.  Here's an excerpt from Car and Driver:

 

"But the Wisconsin firefighters posted the alarming photo above on their Facebook page, which subsequently spread to CBS News and elsewhere, showing a door blown apart by an explosion. It turns out, as the Poynter media group reported, that this photo depicts a deliberate explosion set in 2015 that had nothing to do with any hand sanitizer. It is extremely unlikely that your personal sanitizer bottle will cause that, the firefighters admit, but they still say that with just the wrong combination of concentrated bright sunlight and excessive heat on a bottle of hand sanitizer, it could happen."

 

But if you leave it in direct sunlight, I guess it still poses a danger.

Man plans. God laughs.
