We’ve had so many requests from people asking how to make your own hand sanitiser. The supermarkets and pharmacies are running out of stock due to COVID-19 awareness.
The best thing that you can do to keep yourself safe is to practice good personal hygiene, wash your hands well and try not to touch your face.
Sometimes it isn’t possible to wash your hands when you’re out and about, or maybe you’re concerned about that supermarket trolley or door handle. That’s where having a bottle of sanitising spray in your bag really comes in handy!
Making hand sanitizer spray is actually really easy (making a gel is a bit more tricky) One thing to be aware of though is the actual alcohol content in your isopropyl. You need a minimum of 60% pure isopropyl in order to be an effective sanitiser. If you have a 70% active isopropyl (as opposed to our 99.9% active isopropyl) you will need to use MORE than it states in the recipe.
