How to Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer


HS in our area aren't expected to be on shelves anytime in the near future. Not at least until July, according to one retailer. There are also resources that advise not to make your own hand sanitizer. I think it is a matter of personal choice and research into the recipe for HS.

Be well.

I would opt for grating some soap, mixing it with water and putting it into a little pump container. It is almost impossible to find this type of alcohol and aloe vera right now. I'd bring some bottled water with me so I could pump, wash and rinse. I'm intolerant of alcohol so it is a better alternative for me to just use soap. It takes a little more work but is a possible alternative. I think if we all share info and tips we will all be better off. Thanks.

we've used mixtures of essential oils-acv, alcohol for years as sanitizers and pest sprays -
a little reading and studying up will bring great results...

just use hot water and soap...then dry them
alcohol dries your hands out. the only reason alcohol is used is cos it evaporates quickly as people dont want to bother actually washing their hands.

If theres no towels or wipes or sun, use a fresh leaf, furry lambs ears are actually good to use as wipes...and as toilet paper. dont need to buy them either just grow them and pick them.

I bought hand sanitizer in bulk from Ritecoupons.com for my home and office. In this situation Sanitizer is too important that why I have given each 250ml bottle to my office staff.

alcohol kills bacteria faster that straight 'bleach' which to the human body is very, very, harmful, but,
we should never use any alcohol percentage that's above 50%, unless we dilute it...
our best mixture is:
TTREE OIL-ALCOHOL-VINEGAR-PEPPERMINT OIL and ROSEMARY - and of course we are talking
PURE OILS and NOT 'imitation oils' that are all on the $4.98 rack,. they are complete 'rip-offs'...
