        This still sounds like an excellent idea. Some of the US perfume houses need to follow suit and start producing hand sanitizer quickly! We simply don't have enough to keep up at the present time in our hospital facilities.

        They are going to distribute for free.

        I have an aversion towards showmanship and an irresponsible lack of validation but I wanted to reply for some time now because in this case I really have to disagree with what seems like an insinuation. All the medical staff, including hospital and home caregivers, would certainly be grateful for such a contribution in this case from a company which is involved in ethanol products. Imagine those to have a spare moment, having a look at the container and the backside label and perhaps noticing who the manufacturer is, would it be so wrong for them to feel a little bit more appreciated, even in this perhaps unusual way?
