Ou lala. All the buzz now. Liquid chalk is like the number one selling product in climbing around the world, and I wonder why?
Liquid Chalk is ideal as a base layer under regular chalk in extra hot conditions or just as a standard coating. It creates a thin layer over the hands that lasts much longer than chalk powder does, keeping your hands drier, for longer.
And because its liquid alcohol mixed with standard magnesium, well it does have some anti-bacterial properties. I ain't no doctor, so don't quote me on this. But the word around the campfire is, it's being largely accepted as a pandemic hygiene product for gyms to decrease the spread of viruses on holds and ropes. Sue me if you don't agree. :)
