Here is a recipe to create your own hand sanitiser if you’re having trouble finding any in the shops.
What you’ll need
2/3 cup 99% rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol
1/3 cup 100% pure aloe vera gel
Optional: 8-10 drops essential oil for smell
Bowl and spoon
Empty squeeze Bottle
Step 1: Mix the rubbing alcohol, aloe vera and optional essential oil in a bowl with a spoon. Be careful to keep the pure alcohol away from your skin (use gloves when and where you can)
Step 2: Funnel the mixture into the empty bottle. Screw the pump cap back on and you now have hand sanitiser.
DIY Hand Sanitiser Warnings
As easy as it sounds to make your own hand sanitiser, you should all be aware that rubbing alcohol in high quantities can damage your skin. Make sure you stick to the 2:1 proportion to keep the alcohol content around 60%. You must use gloves while mixing and follow up sanitisation with hand moisturiser.
And we hope it goes without saying that hand sanitiser alone is not enough and isn’t going to protect you from getting sick. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water when it’s available, and limit how much you touch your face.
