Tips For Making Your Own Hand Sanitizer
The coronavirus threat has metro stores out of hand sanitizers.
We checked with Walmart and Super Target stores and both have been out of the in-demand item for days.
However, you can make your own hand sanitizer with ingredients you can still buy in stores.
Here’s a safe recipe for hand sanitizer:
2/3 cup 99% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)
1/3 cup aloe vera gel.
8-10 drop essential oil, optimal (such as lavender, vanilla, peppermint, grapefruit)
Mix all of the ingredients.
You can add additional drops of vitamin E oil to better protect your hands from the alcohol.
Recipes vary, but the CDC say the most effective hand sanitizer has 60% alcohol.
