With Memorial Day arriving on Monday, you know that summer is not far behind, and that means warmer weather. If you're like me and you happen to carry a bottle of hand sanitizer in your vehicle, you may want to change your habits especially for the summer months.

In a story reported on by WTEN/News 10 out of Albany, fire departments are warning people about the dangers of leaving hand sanitizers inside your car on a hot day. As many of you know, most hand sanitizer is alcohol-based and is therefore flammable.

Keeping it in a car during hot weather or exposing it to sun causing magnification of light through the bottle can lead to disaster as this Facebook post of a burned car door shows.
