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:
- Rubbing Alcohol* (also known as Isopropyl alcohol 60%+)
- Aloe Vera Gel*
- Empty Handwash Container
- 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.
