How to Make Hand Sanitizer
Hi Everyone, I’m sharing a useful tutorial on How to Make Hand Sanitizer.
At the time of my writing this, it’s late March and we are in the midst of the Pandemic.
Remember, using this or any hand sanitizer is no guarantee of protection from the Coronavirus (Covid-19) virus.
Physical distancing from other people is the best protection and handwashing with soap and warm/hot water is best.
- 1 tablespoon Aloe vera gel
- 1/4 cup Isopropyl alcohol (60%-99% *must be at least 60% to be effective)
- 3-4 drops tea tree oil
- small bowl
- small whisk
- measuring spoons and cups
- 2-4 ounce bottle(s) with caps
Remember: Handwashing with soap and warm/hot water is the best way to clean your hands.
Use hand sanitizer when you do not have access to running water.
