Disappearing Hand Sanitizer

A friend who knows about these things told me that the Library of Congress has gotten rid of hand sanitizers. This was not because the LOC found itself to be germ-free. Or that they wanted their patrons to pass on whatever illnesses they might be carrying. Problem was, it was disappearing, as in stolen. With a little detective work, it turned out that it was being turned into liquid (adding a certain common household chemical turns the gel to liquid) and drunk. By, presumably, people who are extremely dedicated to the sanitizing of their innards.
