I had a reader ask me how to make homemade hand sanitizer so I did a little digging and YES it's possible. There were a gazillion recipes out there but not all were efficiently made to kill germs. The main thing I found out is that in order for it to properly kill germs it must have at least 60% alcohol in the recipe.
Here's a link to a simple but effective recipe to kill germs.
I like the thought of making our own because you can control the ingredients in it but I'm wondering how cost effective it is since I can buy some at the dollar store. So you'll have to decide if price is more important than healthy ingredients or vice versa. For me, I like being able to control the chemicals and have it smell the way I want it to.
Let me know what you think.
