You can’t avoid germs. You can’t avoid touching things with your hands, so you can’t avoid coming into contact with germs.

But, you can clean your hands regularly to take germs from making you sick or getting your family members sick.

I always make it a priority to keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in my purse.

You never know when you’ll need it and it’s extremely convenient to have when you can’t wash your hands right away.

But, with the most recent panic,  hand sanitizer has been so hard to find.

I went to CVS, Walmart, Walgreens, and Publix, and they were all sold out of hand sanitizer.

All of the store associates told me they were completely sold out and had no idea when hand sanitizer would be back in stock.

Never in a million years did I think it would be so hard to find hand sanitizer!

But that’s ok. Hand sanitizer is fairly easy to make and I believe the homemade version is safer to use than the store-bought version (that’s my opinion, not facts).

If you’re having a hard time finding hand sanitizer due to the panic, keep reading to find out how you can make your own hand sanitizer to disinfect your hands with.
