# 3101 Under the Sanitizer Influence ?

Q. Can one use during Pesach the hand sanitizer usually available in the shul that contains Ethyl Alcohol?
A. On question 2622 published a year ago regarding if one can one use during Pesach sanitizers that contain alcohol, that could be chometz, we wrote: “The alcohol-based versions of the commercially available sanitizers typically contain some combination of isopropyl alcohol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), or n-propanol which are usually not chometz. Even the ethanol is most likely corn alcohol.
Therefore, Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion, as expressed during the Shabbos Hagadol drosho, that during this difficult pandemic days, one can and should use those sanitizers.”
Regarding sanitizers that use only (70%) Ethyl Alcohol that are widespread popular this year, Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that due to the circumstances, in need one is allowed to use it.
