With everything going on in the world the use of proper hygiene and health safety measures has never been of greater necessity. But what to do if your local stores run out of the basic supplies, like masks or handrub? We have compiled three recipes for DIY hand sanitizer for any of your health or hygiene needs.
While having your own hand sanitizer can certainly help in these trying times, is it any better than washing your hands? Many experts state that while having hand sanitizer available in daily use situations is helpful, hand washing is the tried and true method of preventing illness and infection. It takes twenty seconds of washing your hands with soap and water to fully rid your skin of any harmful bacteria and virus cells.
Whatever you end up using, it is best to be thorough when cleaning hands or surfaces and to use the utmost care if you come into contact with any potential contamination.
