As Coronavirus is increasing its spread over the world, hygiene is becoming a major concern for everyone. So is the rise in the sale of hand sanitizers and mouth masks.
But the market is falling short of the demands of the people.
Hence, we thought of telling you how to make a good sanitizer at home:
1. Gel Sanitizer:
To make Gel sanitizer, mix half cup of aloe vera gel with a three-fourth cup of rubbing alcohol and blend it well. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to it, just to mask the smell of alcohol and your hand sanitizer is ready. It will be runnier than the usual hand sanitizers but will be equally effective. And the aloe vera gel will also keep your hands moisturized.
2. Tea Tree Oil Sanitizer:
Tea tree oil has antiviral and antibacterial properties and proves to be good for disinfecting the house. When used in a small quantity, it is good for cleansing your body too. Make a sanitizer by mixing 10 drops of tea tree oil and one teaspoon of castile soap in 100 ml of water. You can also add aloe vera gel to it for moisturising purpose.
3. Spicy Sanitizer:
To make a spicy sanitizer, you don’t have to go far. All the ingredients are straight from your kitchen. Take 100ml of water and add one teaspoon of aloe vera gel to it. Then add two-three drops of cinnamon, clove, rosemary and eucalyptus oil to it. All these oils are antimicrobial in nature. Squeeze half a lemon into it and your homemade sanitizer is ready.
4. Vinegar Sanitizer:
To make this sanitizer you just need two ingredients: Vinegar and water. Mix a cup of 5% solution of vinegar with half a cup of water and shake it well in a spray bottle. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to mask the smell of vinegar and use it. No more running to the market and exposing yourself to the germs.
