What’s Bitrex used in?

Since it was first discovered, Bitrex has been used in all sorts of useful ways.

It’s added to confiscated alcohol to make it undrinkable. It’s used widely in agriculture to prevent problems from tail-biting to crib-biting. But most famously, it’s used as a safety additive in household, garden and car products.

Where there’s a potential risk of accidental poisoning, there’s a case for using Bitrex.
