Disinfectant Silly Putty

For Kids Who Don't Wash Their Hands
  [vote for,

I know kids are not really fond of washing their hands, but they LOVE playing with silly putty. What if something along the lines of "Cyber Clean", the electronics cleaning putty, was to be put in a more viscous form and somehow made to have disinfecting properties, like that of hand sanitizer?

It couldn't be quite as "dry" as silly putty, and I'm not quite sure a non-toxic sanitizer exists D:

But, I'm sure kids would like to play with it a lot more than they like their moms squirting the cold, weird-smelling Germ- X on their hands before meals.

       Just invite Corporal Punishment around for dinner whenever the little brats won't do as they're told and wash their hands.

       Prolly a bit awkward in the middle of McDonald's...And if they're making their kids use sanitizer before fast food meals, they're probably not big advocates of spanking D:

       Teach them how to use utensils.

       Teach them to not eat at McDonald's.

       Hand sanitiser and other domestic disinfectant is definitely overkill for daily use. Teach them to use soap and warm water.

       great idea for toddlers (unless they eat it of course)

       great idea for toddlers (because they will eat it of course)

       Welcome to the halfbakery- I hope you washed your hands before coming in...

       Has anyone, anywhere at any time every died from not washing their hands before eating? Likewise, has anyone ever died from a loo seat which is not clean enough to use as an operating table?

       But where are my manners? Welcome to the HB, [CaptainDowns].

       Yes, in 1867, 11 year old Henrietta Noncepuddler didn't wash her hands before eating, and was sent to bed without supper. Being a stubborn child, she did it again the next night, and the next .... Her parents, equally stubborn, repeated the punishment. After three weeks the neighbors became suspicious, and police dogs found her emaciated corpse buried in the back garden.

       Must have been nearly midnight, where you are. You barely made your quota.
