How to Make Hand Sanitiser, by Mrs Hoggett

Homemade Hand Sanitiser, and You Can, Too

If you are in need of hand sanitizer and can't find any at the store or can't get out to the store, here is an easy recipe if you already have these ingredients at home.


  • 1 cup of 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
  • 1/2 cup aloe Vera gel (the kind you put on sunburns)

Pour the ingredients into an empty squirt/spray bottle, such as an empty dish liquid bottle or soap pump. Shake well. The mixture will be thinner than the commercially available brands. However, the alcohol percentage will be higher and above 60% which is the amount recommended by the CDC.

We added a drop of green food coloring just for fun.

Note: If you only have the 70% alcohol, change the recipe to 1 1/4 cup alcohol and 1/4 cup aloe Vera gel.
