Need Photo ID to Buy Drain Cleaner

A new Illinois state law now requires individuals to show a state-issued photo ID and sign a log in order to purchase drain cleaner or other caustic chemicals.

In answer to two incidents in which two women were attacked and had drain cleaner poured on them, the state legislature passed a law which requires the customer to show a photo ID and sign a log in order to purchase drain cleaner or caustic chemicals.

Non-compliance would result in a $150 fine for the first offense, $500 for the second and up to $1,500 for a third and subsequent violations.

Some stores estimate that as many as 30 products would have to be reported to the state when sold.
