I didn't resist alcohol until I was about 30, then I cut back
Yep, there is a time we might rethink alcohol consumption...I was about 28 then.

I kind of like it better than the goop.
I have a small bottle. The expiration date was 2013. How does alcohol gel expire?

It is true that if exposed long enough you will likely find a bacteria that is resistant to alcohol. I have never heard of it. As for virus??? I am not sure how that works since they are not actually living things. They react with your cell biology. So I've never understood the idea of using a gel to avoid getting a virus. Is there a microbiologist in the house?

From what I have heard as an interested observer, this particular virus is not a tough nut. Its "envelope" is easily breached with soap and water or alcohol. Some others are hard shell, so to speak.

The gel is just a carrier. When we had nothing else, I just sprayed straight alcohol on surfaces but that obv would not work well on your hands when you get back in your car.
