Just don't get it in your eyes----and you'll be okay.

There are many things like that which are "eye irritants."

The article says it can be absorbed by the skin.
I am not sure if they mean that can blind you, eventually, also.

Yes, it can blind you. I read it, I don’t read things all the time, it can be toooooo much reading for me. The ingredient they looking for is methanol, it’s toxic.

Be careful of what you read.

Somebody could write, say, that eating corn could lead to blindness. And people have written things like that in the past.

I read the article. It stated that a person is most at risk for these symptoms if he/she actually drinks the product. I don't sense that they believe that many people will go blind if they just rub it around their hands, though they believe there is a risk (probably slight) of some symptoms occurring.

This particular product, under an abundance of caution, has been recalled.

eating corn leads to my bunghole

What is the difference between ethanol and methanol?

Methanol is poisonous, and it is one of the chemicals that can be used in small amounts to denature alcohol (also known as ethanol) to keep people from drinking ethanol products such as mouth wash and fuel blends.

Methanol can make you go blind, that's why using it as an adulterant in booze used to be punished really severely.

Ethanol ironically is an anti-dote to methanol so just have a few drinks every time you sanitize your hands and you'll feel great.
