Make your own hand sanitizer, meets CDC recommendation of > 60% alcohol. SO simple.

1/3 cup aloe gel
2/3 cup isopropyl alcohol ( 99% strength)

~~~ that's the business end, add your choice of essential oil,or preferred scent product by the drop if you please.

~~~recipe easily scaled up for larger batch.

Thanks, seems simple enough. I haven't tried to locate aloe gel at the local store. Wonder if it is getting as scarce as the other stuff.

I didn't search all over, but the other day I was unable to locate aloe gel. Couldn't even find aloe based sunscreen. And the alcohol that I have is only 70% strength..

70% alcohol is good Carol. CDC recommends 60% as minimum. If I can't find any aloe gel, I was thinking of just putting some alcohol in an old Windex bottle, and use that until I can find some aloe.

OK, thanks. I haven't looked everywhere, but I couldn't find any aloe.
