How to make your own hand sanitizer (quick and easy)


A shortage of hand sanitizer during the pandemic (and during the cold and flu season) is a potential nightmare for anyone wanting to keep their hands germ-free. The good news is that with just a few simple ingredients and a container to mix them in, you can make your own disinfectant from the comfort of your home! (No chemistry degree is required!)

How to make your own hand sanitizer
By Deliris /

What you need to make a hand sanitizer:

  •  Rubbing alcohol (99% alcohol)
  •  Aloe vera
  •  Liquid measuring cup
  • Funnel (optional)
  •  Mixing bowl
  •  Essential oil (optional)

Steps to follow:

1. In the liquid measuring cup, pour ¾ cup of rubbing alcohol (which you then pour into the mixing bowl).
2. Add ¼ cup of aloe vera.
3. If you prefer a scented disinfectant, pour 5 to 7 drops of essential oil of your choice into the mixture (this step is optional).
4. Mix the three ingredients and let stand.
5. Using a funnel, pour the freshly prepared mixture into an empty soap dispenser or into a (recycled) bottle of hand sanitizer.

As long as the mixture contains at least 60% alcohol, it will act as an effective germ killer. Keep in mind that homemade hand sanitizer is only recommended in extreme situations – when you don’t have access to clean water to wash your hands – as it can eventually cause skin irritation or burns. Above all, it should never be used on children’s skin.

This remains a troubleshooting solution: the best way to kill germs and germs is to wash your hands with soap and water.
