HOMEMADE HAND SANITIZER
Are we not amazed at how callous and capitalistic people can be. Since the news break of corononavirus in Nigeria, prices of Hand Sanitizers have skyrocketed with an increase of about 500% under 2 days! Worse still, NOT AVAILABLE.
Congratulations to you that you are a member of this group, TODAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE YOUR OWN HAND SANITIZERS which will be as potent as store bought, if not more potent and without the nasty additives.
Dr Ed Chag, the medical director of Parkway Shenton and Dr Natasha Bagdasaria, a medical consultant with the Division of infectious disease affirmed that, for a HAND SANITIZER TO BE EFFECTIVE AGAINST BACTERIA AND VIRUS, IT MUST CONTAIN AT LEAST 60% ALCOHOL! Reason, WHO and CDC have been emphasising on ALCOHOL BASED hand sanitizers to protect yourself against spread of COVID-19 Virus.
With that in mind, I present to you below, Home made hand sanitizer, Alcohol based, with extras and without nasty chemicals in commercial ones:
(1). 2/3 Cup of rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol etc) Forget about the big names, if you are a Nigerian, just grab Moko Methylated Spirit, it contains 88.93% Isopropyl Alcohol, 11.94% Ethanol, 0.13% Propanol and just 0.01% Water. Meaning it is about 99.9% Alcohol!
(2). 1/3 Cup of 100% pure Aloe Vera. This will act as a carrier and as a moisturizer to prevent your hands from drying out from the effect of the alcohol. If you can not get Aloe Vera, replace with Vegetable Glycerine, but drop volume a little so your hand don’t get sticky.
(3). 10 drops of Lavender Essential oil (For fragrance). If you dont care how it smells, forget about this.
Mix the ingredients together thoroughly, then fill into several portable squeeze plastic bottles. Give to all your households, friends and brag about our group! You are protected (handwise)
TWEAKING THE FORMULA WITH EXTRAS (OPTIONAL)
(4) Essential oil
(5) Add 1 TSP of Vitamin E oil for extra moisturizing and lustrous skin.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are rich and you shack Vodka, you do not need to buy any Rubbing Acohol, replace number 1 above with Vodka, but be sure it is not less than 100 Proof Vodka (This contain 50% Alcohol), such as Balkan Vodka. If you get 176 Proof Vodka, thats better (It contain 88% Alcohol). 179 Proof Vodka contain 89.9% Alcohol. Stop right there, that’s all you need!
You have been enriched with knowledge, protect yourself.
As usual, it is my prayers that the Almighty God will protect us from pestilences and heal our land. Amen.
