With the growing threat of coronavirus, there is a growing demand for hand sanitizers and the increased demand has made a shortage of hand sanitizers in the market as many people are panic buying and stocking up with unnecessary amounts. This post is all about showing you how to make hand sanitizer at home with easily available ingredients.
The best way to clean your hand is soap. Properly clean your hands with soap rubbing it on your hands and lather for at least 20 to 30 seconds. Make sure to clean palms, back of the hand and between your fingers.
While you are on the go you may not have access to water and soap, hand sanitizers come handy. Always keep your hand sanitizer with you. Keep one small bottle in your bag/handbag or in your vehicle.
Hand sanitizer can easily be made at home with just few ingredients. The ingredients used are as simple as Aleo Vera Gel and rubbing alcohol. Both these ingredients can be bought from your local pharmacy. It is better to use the pure Aloe Vera Gel right from the plant, which is used as a moisturiser as alcohol would dry your skin.
It is recommended to use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content for it to be effective.
Sanitizer to be effective needs a higher concentration of alcohol.
It is also recommended to use 99% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol.
