I went to the store the other day to get a hand sanitizer, and guess what?… I just reserve my comment because it seemed like the store had been transferred to somewhere else, or I was actually on a different planet because I saw nothing at all. If you have a First Aid kit at home, then you can easily make your own home-made hand sanitizer.
There are several websites out here that have publications on how you can effortlessly make your own hand sanitizer at the comfort of your home because a lot of movement has been restricted in some parts of the world. In this time, you do not just want to be moving about like someone who doesn’t know what they want, or you just want to be moving about like a ‘spirit’ for COVID-19 to destroy. (laughing out loud).
With that being said, I want you to know that, for this concoction to be effective, you need the following:
- Aloe vera gel
- Rubbing alcohol (it must be 99% alcohol)
- Measuring cup
- A bottle with a pump.
- 2 drops of essential oil of choice (optional)
- 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol (99% isopropyl alcohol)
- 1/3 cup of aloe vera gel of choice
Stir together into a clean soap or pump bottle your rubbing alcohol, and aloe gel. Add in 2 drops of any essential oil of choice.
For your home-made hand sanitizer to be effective, the below must be put into consideration:
- Your hand sanitizer will only be effective if you are able to cover your hands thoroughly with it and then letting them naturally dry. Do not try to shake them off your hands, or wipe them with a cloth that you do not know where it was simply because you thought you had pumped more than you needed in your hands.
- This hand sanitizer can only be effective if it has a strength of at least 60% alcohol. Do not try to use a 91 percent alcohol because it would not get the work done.
- If your hands are very dirty or greasy, know that your hand sanitizer will be of little or no help to you.
I would love to know if you tried the above recipe.
Until next time.
