March 24, 2020
As shoppers have been stockpiling hand sanitiser, the world has run into a global shortage. But just because you can’t get it on the shelves, that doesn’t mean you can’t get some. You just have to make it yourself. So follow these simple steps to make your own hand sanitiser.

What You Need To Know

While hand sanitizer is very useful, especially when you’re making your weekly visit to the supermarket or if you’re working in an essential job, the best way to keep your hands clean is still to wash them with soap and water. This needs to be done for at least 20 seconds and should be done every time you come home or have touched something which could be carrying germs.

Additionally, if you’re planning to make your own hand sanitizer, remember your ingredients must be measured precisely for the product to work.

 

Ingredients

⅔ cup 99% isopropyl alcohol, ⅓ cup aloe vera gel, 8 to 10 drops essential oil (optional).

Materials

1 mixing bowl, 1 mixing utensil, a clean funnel, and a thoroughly washed and dried bottle with a resealable lid or pump to store sanitizer.

 

Method

It literally couldn’t be easier to make your own homemade hand sanitiser! It’s as easy as making a baguette! Simply mix the ingredients together in the bowl and then use the funnel to pour them into your storage bottle. Add essential oils like tea tree oil to give the sanitiser a more pleasant smell. Screw the pump back onto the bottle and you're ready to go.

A Word of Warning

The alcohol content in hand sanitiser must not drop below 60% so for that reason, if you want to use aloe vera, the alcohol needs to be at least 80% as it will get diluted. It is much safer to just use soap and water than it is to use a hand sanitiser which has not been properly measured with the correct ingredients.

Staying at Home

You can make all the hand sanitizer in the world and wash your hands as thoroughly as you like, but you may be putting others, more at risk than yourself in danger. So wherever possible please stay home.
