CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.
Following CDC’s recommended hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, I prepared this video to show you how I made mine at home with just two ingredients (aloe gel and 91% isopropanol). Please note 70% isopropanol is the minimum requirement and will work for this purpose!
DISCLAIMER: We do not claim to be medical professionals, this is a demonstration of how we make hand sanitizer at home given the COVID-19 pandemic and nearly all store hand sanitizers are sold out. This is NOT to replace sanitizing products sold at pharmacies and stores.
