Shops are sold out of hand sanitiser gel everywhere and as coronavirus seems to be growing I thought it may be helpful to share a method to make your own hand sanitiser gel that may be equally effective, cheaper, and easier to get hold of.

You need two things:

How this works
  • The key active ingredient in hand sanitiser gel is usually alcohol. Alcohol kills germs, bacteria and viruses.
  • You need to use alcohol that is 70% or more in strength for it to be effective. Vodka, at 40%, is not strong enough.
  • Strong alcohol may dry your skin (which may make it crack and therefore weaken the protection). So you add aloe vera gel or something similar to make it moisturise your skin at the same time.
How to make it
  • Whack some 70% alcohol solution into a spray bottle with some aloe vera gel.
  • Apply onto the hands just as you normally would.
Extra Tips
  • You can also add essential oils like lavender to make it smell nicer.

See when stacking deals, is it only stackable when it’s valid or is there a way to stack them after the expiry date?

This isn't a deal stack. Just a tip to make your own hand sanitiser gel.

kylefellenger1 I've forgotten which Chat topic you're referring to, sorry! Please could you share the link to it here?

If your question is: Can I stack a deal after the expiry date? No you can't.

Thanks!

Great idea to share this, not really thought about using hand sanitizer but it's probably for the best

Any suggestions where to get the rubbing alcohol? I was refused sale at 2 pharmacies in the UK before and started to bring it from abroad, I often use it for disinfecting blisters and scrapes.

We always buy rubbing alcohol from the local pharmacy. I don't see any reason why anyone would refuse to sell you this 🤨

Yeah well, I was surprised too, those were two nearest to my place and haven't tried beyond that, maybe they got discouraged after I said I need it to disinfect wounds lol, skating accidents 😂
