Are you waiting on your favorite hand sanitizers to get restocked from Bath & Body Works like I am? You’ve most likely never thought to make your own, but it is the easiest DIY projected you can do today!
Things you need:
- 1 cup of 99% isopropyl alcohol
- 1 tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide
- 1 teaspoon of 98% glycerin
- ¼ cup (or 65 milliliters) of sterile distilled or boiled cold water
Pour the alcohol into a medium-sized container with a pouring spout.
Add the hydrogen peroxide.
Add the glycerin and stir.
This ingredient is thicker than both alcohol and hydrogen peroxide, so it’ll take some stirring to combine everything. You can use a clean spoon for this.
Measure and pour in the water
Measure ¼ of a cup of distilled or boiled cold water and add it to your mix. Stir.
Sanitize your spray bottles and pour in your hand sanitizer. Spray some of your leftover alcohol into your bottles and let them sit until the alcohol has evaporated. Pour in your sanitizer.
Label your bottles. You don’t want any accidents where you or anybody else ingests your newly made hand sanitizer. Take the time to label your bottles.
Go kill some germs.
