How To Make Your Own Antibacterial Gel

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading in the UK, there's been panic buying of antibacterial gels. You can see empty shelves in supermarkets, pharmacies and stores like Home Bargains and B&M. Don't worry if you can't get your hands on any - just make your own antibacterial gel.

How To Make Your Own Hand Sanitiser

Hand washing is a much more effective way to eliminate germs and bacteria on your hands, but there are times where you'd like to "cleanse" your hands, but you're nowhere near a sink. That's when hand sanitiser comes in handy.

What you'll need is:


  • Empty 1/3 cup of Aloe Vera Gel into the bowl, followed by 2/3 cup Rubbing Alcohol.
  • Mix together well.
  • Now, use the funnel to decant the gel into your container.

Want it to smell nice? You can add lavender or other essential oils to your mix to scent the gel.

          A word of caution if you try making your own product using isopropyl alcohol..... Please wear an air filtering mask or work in a very well ventilated area, as IPA gives off toxic fumes that can cause severe chest irritation.
