I got some feedback on this radical idea. Male gymnasts tried it at one club but quickly abandoned the idea. It didn’t work as well for H Bar.
Dr. Bill Sands sent a Safety Data Sheet on Isopropyl Alcohol (50-100%).
Risks include the fact that Isopropyl Alcohol is flammable. And some are allergic to topical alcohol.
All in all, I don’t think I’d try liquid chalk.
___ original post:
Steve Arkell linked to this video, a rock climber making her own liquid chalk.
Alcohol is a component, a disinfectant.
I checked with a rock climbing coach who agreed it couldn’t hurt to use chalk with alcohol on reopening after COVID-19. On climbing walls. And in sports like Gymnastics.
He suggested we could use 100% alcohol in the formula.
When kids are in the Gym we should remind them not to touch their face, as well.
