Out in the woods and need to start a fire and there is some damp wood? More Than A Mommy Of Three says you can put a fair share of hand sanitizer on the wood and start a fire. Be careful, you don't need much. Also, don't use it on your hands if you are going to do that.

Reader's Digest says you can also use it to Polish Silver, clean your glasses, use it as deodorant, acne relief, shampoo, clean your iron, and clean hairspray and other gunk off of your mirror.

Next time you are at the Dollar Store, you see a few pumps for sale, buy them. Having extra could help you when you can't get other products due to COVID-19.
