While people across the world try and prevent coronavirus from spreading in their own homes, sales of hand sanitizers have skyrocketed. In the US, sales were up over 70% in the last few weeks of February compared to the same time last year.

Don't want to or can't buy your own hand sanitizer? Why not make your own!

WARNING: These ingredients can be harmful if you use them incorrectly.

1 cup of 99% Isopropyl Alcohol

1 TBS of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide

1 TSP of 98% Glycerin or Aloe Vera *for your hand protection*

Boiled cold / sterile distilled water *Add enough water to bring the total liquid to 11/3 cups*

The World Health Department and CDC continue to remind the public that if you think you or someone you know has coronavirus-- the first step to take is to call your local health department.
