OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (FOX19) - In a Facebook post on Thursday, the Western Lakes Fire District in Wisconsin detailed the unexpected results of leaving hand sanitizer in a hot car.
In their post, they explain that most hand sanitizer is flammable due to its alcohol-based nature. Flammable liquids and direct sunlight can cause the bottle to explode.
Open flames like smoking and grilling can also lead to a disaster.
As more people are carrying around this liquid to protect themselves from COVID-19, the Western Lakes Fire District wants everyone to know how to be safe.
