Uncharted Territory: DIY Hand Sanitizer

Pandemic 2020 has left us all in uncharted territory, I have no great words of wisdom but I do have a recipe for DIY Hand Sanitizer. The best part is, you probably have the needed ingredients in your homes right now! After all, I do love a DIY project.

This isn’t a unique recipe and you can find similar ones all over the Internet.

Aloe Vera
Rubbing Alcohol- I used a 91% concentration.


  1. Mix 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol with 1/3 cup aloe vera.
  2. Stir well.
  3. Allow it to sit overnight and then move it into another container.

The hand sanitizer is extremely liquidy and works better in a squeezable jar rather than the mason jars that I originally used. You’ll love this easy recipe that will save you from fighting for hand sanitizer at the stores.

You may even want to try this with the kiddos while you’re at home. I can see this being a homeschool science experiment.
