DISCLAIMER: This hand sanitizer is not a substitute for proper handwashing.

While being afraid of so many things in life such as spiders, pitch dark and hail, germs is something that never really concerned or scared me, until now.

I have always washed my hands with soap and used Hand Sanitizer on a daily basis, but now, I am using it more often.

With the scare of so many different viruses, it’s hard to find hand sanitizer anywhere sometimes, even online. So many people are looking into how to make your own hand sanitizer.

I came across this DIY recipe on how to make your own if you are needing some or like making your own recipes for things instead of store bought stuff.

It is a good idea to keep these items items on hand so that you will always have what you need when to make more hand sanitizer. So make sure to grab extras if you can.
