How To: Hand/Surface Sanitizer on the cheap
So, if your not interested in having your skin be stick and who is right? Here is a general recipe that is not as sticky but more potent, based on the ingredient mixture recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization.
Recipe for use with a Spray Bottle
The aloe version gets the job done, but aloe also tends to leave the skin annoyingly sticky.
Mix in 1 ⅔ cups of the Isopropyl Alcohol with 2 teaspoons of the *glycerol. Glycerol is available online. The glycerol keeps the alcohol ingredient from drying out your hands. * If you are unable to afford or cannot find glycerol, proceed with the rest of the recipe anyway and remember to moisturize your hands after applying the sanitizer.
Next, Mix in 1 tablespoon of the hydrogen peroxide.
Then add ¼ cup of the distilled or boiled (room temp. cooled) water.
*(If you are working with a lower-concentration solution of rubbing alcohol, use far less water; remember, at least ⅔ of the final mixture has to be alcohol for full effectiveness.)
Load the solution into the spray bottle—it’s a spray. Your solution should be water-like. You can wet paper towels with it and use the paper towel as a wipe.
If you must have an excellent smelling spray, you can add in a splash of essential oil to your concoction to make it smell good.
