COVID-19 HandSanitizer Recipé

Properly scrubbing your hands is the best ways to stop the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure you don’t get sick yourself.  But if you don't have access to soap and clean water, you should carry hand sanitizer to protect your health.  Here's how to mix either a spray or a gel yourself.

Make sure your containers and equipment are clean.  The World Health Organization recommends letting your concoction sit for a minimum of 72 hours after you're done.  That way the sanitizer has time to kill any bacteria that might have been introduced during the mixing process.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that your sanitizer mix must be at least 60% alcohol to be effective. Where regular vodka and whiskey might leave you half-cut, it's won't cut it as a counter to COVID-19.

The Spray Recipé (This is better as it will not leave you hands sticky)

  • 12 oz isopropyl alcohol (99%)
  • 2 teaspoons of glycerol
  • 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide
  • 3 fluid ounces of distilled or boiled (then cooled) water
If you're working with a lower-concentration solution of rubbing alcohol, use far less water; remember, at least 75% of your final mixture has to be alcohol.

Washing your hands is always better than this stuff.
