Why bother with fighting the line at Walmart when it opens at 7 a.m. to try and fight for one of the 9 bottles of hand sanitizer? Why pay someone on Amazon 16 times what it cost in January?
Here's a better idea: just make the stuff yourself. That way you can get it in whichever scent you want or no scent at all. Plus you won't run out, you won't go broke, and you won't have any bruises from the battle.
Here you go:
Hand sanitizer recipe
What you’ll need:
3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99 percent)
1/4 cup of aloe vera gel (to help keep your hands smooth and to counteract the harshness of alcohol)
10 drops of essential oil, such as lavender oil, or you can use lemon juice, or nothing if you don't want it to smell.
Pour all ingredients into a big glass bowl, if you have one with a pouring spout like a measuring container that's best. Don't use plastic. The alcohol won't really be a good idea to put in that.
Mix it all with a spoon and then beat it with a whisk (or a handheld mixer) to turn the sanitizer into a gel. It might foam up a little. That's okay, it'll settle down.
Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use, and label it “Covid Killer".
There you go. Saved you 11 bucks and maybe an argument with someone woman who didn't understand that the fact that you were standing in front of it meant you wanted it.
