How2 Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer.

Still looking for a way to get your hands on some sanitizer? You can actually DIY.
Poynter Senior Faculty Al Tompkins explains:
“If the hand sanitizer you are using does not contain at least a 60% concentration of alcohol, there is a decent chance it is not effective at killing the coronavirus. Some popular brands don’t include alcohol at all.
“I used this recipe to make my own hand-sanitizer after local stores ran out. It is one cup of 91% rubbing alcohol and one-third cup of aloe. You have Purell. I have my concoction, which I call ‘Pure Al.’ If it were 100% alcohol, it would evaporate too fast and dry out your skin, chemistry experts warn.
Be careful to look at percentages and use aloe in order to avoid burning.
