CDC states hand washing for at least 20 seconds is best, when you can’t wash use of hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol. I feel 70%-90% from reading literature does the job. Rub your hands together until they feel dry (this should take around 20 seconds).

Tired of trying to find hand sanitizer at the store? Know you got this, the recipe is simple. Keep empty bottle from previous brand and get down to creating.

You need: (to make 1 cup of hand sanitizer)


3/4 cup of 90% or higher Isopropyl or ethanol alcohol (Everclear or vodka will also do the job.

1/3 cup aloe vera gel

2-10 drops of essential oil (optional-maybe red thyme, cinnamon leaf, clove leaf, or tee tree, which has been shown to have anti-viral& bacterial properties)


Go for it: get small mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until combined, then simply use a funnel to prior into that empty bottle you saved


AND don’t forget to wear a mask!
