Frugal Homemade Hand Sanitizer

After reading several different recipes to make your own hand sanitizer, I came up with my own version.  I like the results better than the first recipe I tried, which used only aloe vera gel and alcohol.  I think the glycerin is an added benefit because it softens your hands too.

Here is what I did:
Homemade Hand Sanitizer
3 T. glycerin
3 T. aloe vera gel
10 T. rubbing alcohol
Mix ingredients in an 8 ounce bottle (I reused an old hand sanitizer bottle).  I put the cover on and shook the bottle to mix the ingredients. 
This is a fun recipe to make with your kids and this is so easy to do! 

You can play around with the amounts, but just know your alcohol content must be at least 60%. Pin It Print Friendly and PDF
