We have found inmates using salt mixed with hand sanitizer to get the alcohol out of the sanitizer. Most guys are nasty drunks off that stuff. Anyone else finding anything like this?

The hand sanitizer does "clean" their breaths though lol. I've found different "variations" of hooch and awhile back, cottage cheese made from old milk.

How's that HOPE and CHANGE working out for you?

What would you do for a Klondike bar?

 We saw this at the Jail last year. They didn't mix it with salt though they just drank it as is.


A couple years before that they were making wine.

Thank you for this interesting post.  From what I know of inmates' descriptions of its effects, the name pruno is apropos.  I understand it gives a brutal hangover, no matter how "expert" the making.


Drinking hand sanitizer sounds to be at least as wretched.  


Mean drunks ready to fight.  The climate inside is bad enough without the added risk.  


Hats off to our correctional officers.

Made some in training the salt causes all the other stuff to make like a hard jello substance and what is left behind is almost pure alcohol

 That's actually kind of interesting because I was taught in a drug/alcohol class that it was the wrong kind of alcohol (and in a lethal concentration) in hand sanitizer.  I'm surprised theyre not trying the mouthwash filtered through a loaf of bread to remove most of the green coloring.

They will get drunk off of anything that contains alcohol. This is why most facilities ban hand sanitizer.


The above comments are soley those of the poster and in no way reflect the position of the Department of Corrections.

 I heard that inmates ferment fruit in a bag with sugar. Maybe that's just the people who don't want to drink hand sanitizer.

This was a high school project in my health class.  Sure it was supposed to be a fermentaion experiment but I couldn't help notice the apple/yeast combo tasted a lot like wine.

Thank you for this, this explains the bread I've been finding outside my Unit.


Also, what the rest of you guys are referring to is Isopropanol. We've had to secure any chemicals containing Isopropanol (mop cleaner and window cleaner) and issue out as needed. The method of extracting the Isopropanol from the mixed chemical is called "Salting Out" (I would have linked a Wikipedia source, but this is the 4th time I've try to post a reply now and it was rejected due to "prohibited HTML markup"). My suggestion is to check your chemical MSDS (material safety data sheet) for Isopropanol and secure those chemicals.

Nop. Haven't heard of this one.


Pruno is pruno.


I guess you could mix kersone, rubbing alcohol, hops and Lysterine and make an appertiff. But being blind isn't all that bad.
