Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer Using 2 Simple Ingredients

 

We all know the number one way to keep germs away is to thoroughly and frequently wash your hands with soap and water. But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Have you ever considered making your own hand sanitizer? It's super easy! You can find the basic ingredients in any drug store and most grocery stores.

 

Here’s how to make it:

In a bowl, stir 2/3 cup Isopropyl alcohol 91%-99% (rubbing alcohol) and 1/3 cup aloe vera gel together until well blended. Optional: add 8-10 drops of scented essential oil. Pour the homemade hand sanitizer into a clean, empty container and seal. Label the bottle and DONE!
