DIY Hand Sanitizer

In this video, we go over how you can make your own hand sanitizer at home with just a few basic items.

What you’ll need:
91% Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
Aloe vera gel
Mixing bowl
Spoon or something for whisking
Small container, such as a 3 oz. travel bottle
Optional: essential oil to give the liquid a fragrance

In a mixing bowl, stir Isopropyl alcohol and aloe vera gel together until well blended.
Add 8-10 drops of scented essential oil (optional, but nice!). Stir to incorporate.
Pour the homemade hand sanitizer into an empty container and seal. Write “hand sanitizer” on a piece of masking tape and affix to the bottle.

  3. Warning don't buy from Amazon. They are selling hand sanitizers that say 60mls but 60mls is only 2 ounces and they want 7-10 dollars. I told Amazon yesterday.

  4. You're better off using 99% isopropyl alcohol.

  12. At 91%, mixing in 1/3 aloe vera, you're getting pretty close to the minimum recommended 60% alcohol. I'd recommend using 99% alcohol (more expensive) or a little less aloe vera which will make it even more runny than this.

  13. OMG if you were my nurse, I would die from that awful voice.

  14. Looks to watery maybe more gel?

  15. You should note if your using 70% isopropyl alcohol it's 9 to 1 ratio…most isopropyl alcohol is sold out though. Also 60-95% is what to aim for the ratio above should give you 63%. Plz correct me if this incorrect seeing as how I'm just a blue collar worker.

  16. The aloe vera gel just coagulates in a lump in the bowl, like a egg white. Food mixer makes it worse 🙁

  17. Sprays and wipes to clean your glasses also have the alcohol in it.. might dry out the hands quicker. But better than nothing if no way to wash your hands
