General Chat / A recipe for homemade hand sanitizer
« on: April 01, 2020, 02:01:35 PM »
Hand sanitizer is in short supply.  Here's how you can make some at home.

In a pinch you can use just plain old 70% alcohol straight from the bottle.

Booze is not a good substitute as 100 proof booze is only 50% alcohol (2 proof=1%).

How do you make your own hand sanitizer?

Dr. Rishi Desai, chief medical officer of Osmosis, and a former epidemic intelligence service officer in the division of viral diseases at the CDC, says that the hand sanitizer recipe below will kill 99.9 percent of germs after 60 seconds.
Hand sanitizer recipe

What you’ll need:

    3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99 percent)
    1/4 cup of aloe vera gel (to help keep your hands smooth and to counteract the harshness of alcohol)
    10 drops of essential oil, such as lavender oil, or you can use lemon juice instead


    Pour all ingredients into a bowl, ideally one with a pouring spout like a glass measuring container.
    Mix with a spoon and then beat with a whisk to turn the sanitizer into a gel.
    Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use, and label it “hand sanitizer.”

People are staying home a lot more and catching a a bad case of cabin fever.

It is starting to affect our pets.

So you are stranded at home and need a quick fix for lunch.  :)

Open a can of chili beans
place half in a bowl and nuke for 1 minute.

Remove and stir in half a can of diced tomatoes.

Stir and enjoy your vegetable chili.

Save the other 2 halves for another day
