Guard yourself and your family against germs and viruses by making your very own hand sanitizer at home!
One of the most effective ways to keep disease at bay is by washing your hands regularly. This is important now more than ever, because the Covid-19 virus is still at large, and we don’t know when this pandemic will be over.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we need to wash our hands using soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds to get rid of germs on your skin. You have to do so every time you use the bathroom, cough, blow your nose, touch a pet, and come in contact with a person or a surface or a that may be contaminated.
These surfaces include a variety of things - from doorknobs and desks, railings, ATM machines, mailboxes, to cell phones and keyboards. In short, the virus can be everywhere, so is it really feasible to wash your hands as often as required?
Say it is, but what if you don’t have access to water, soap, and a sink? Do you just succumb to the possibility of being contaminated? Of course not! There is another way to keep your hands clean and safe from viruses. Without the good-old soap and water, the next best thing is the hand sanitizer.
The thing is, ever since this whole pandemic has started, hand sanitizers were the first ones to go extinct at the supermarket. Due to this unforeseen shortage, most sellers have decided to capitalize on the product and offer them at ridiculously expensive rates.
Fortunately, there is a perfectly easy way to handle the situation. Screw those selfish sellers and just make your own hand sanitizer!
Yes, You Can Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer at Home!
Sure, commercial hand sanitizers are much more sterilized than homemade ones. But, in the meantime, you can make and use DIY hand sanitizers as you wait for the real stuff to come back to the shelves.
Today, we’ll cover two fantastic hand sanitizer recipes that you can totally do at home. These sanitizers are alcohol-based, and you can use them as an alternative when washing your hands with soap and water is just not an option.
But, before anything else, here’s a tip: don’t make hand sanitizers in huge batches. Alcohol evaporates over time, so your sanitizer will not be as effective the longer it sits unused.
