I found some hand sanitizer at work and noticed on the back that it's flammable. Since we have a professional firefighter in the building, I decided to light this stuff to see if it really is flammable.

Even though we're idiots doesn't mean it's OK for you to be an idiot. Do NOT try this at home. Fires are dangerous.

Watch Us Test Flammability of Hand Sanitizer


Why is hand sanitizer flammable? Because of the alcohol in it. That's also why it burns a clear flame. We really had no idea how this test would turn out. We assumed the stuff would burn, but figured it would burn out real quick. We had no idea that the water would have no impact on the flame.

Do NOT try this at home.
