By now, we are all aware of the basic precautions one has to take, to keep novel coronavirus from spreading. The most important being:
Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing and sneezing.
In the case of soap and water not readily available, use a sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Lastly, avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with your hands.
These three measures are the new mantras that have been doing rounds globally and we see every expert and doctor preaching them. And now, for us, it has become a daily ritual, for we want to keep a safe distance from the deadly virus affecting us. However, the spread of novel coronavirus globally has led to people taking extreme measures such as stocking up on hygiene, cleaning, and medical products, among others. These measures have not only led to a shortage of products but also an increase in prices. So far, there has been a shortage of face masks, but one other product that is also reaching a deficit is the hand sanitizers. Yes, that does put us in a vulnerable situation and make us think about what we are going to do if soap and water are not readily available during times of travel or in other dire situations.
However, we do have a solution for that and it’s quite simple – you can make your own sanitizer! Yes, that’s right, here in this post, we will be guiding you on how you can make a sanitizer all by yourself with products you probably already have at home.
