Wash Those Hands! - Updated!

With the recent Swine Flu Scare - I sent my kids to school with extra bottles of hand sanitizer yesterday. I thought I would purchase a few more to have on hand and went to Fred Meyer to get some. Freddy's was all sold out. This morning on the radio, I heard a recipe for homemade hand sanitizer. I will definitely try to make it and see if it works or not.

If you want to try, here is the recipe:

Hand Sanitizer Gel
1/2 cup aloe vera gel
1/4 cup 99% rubbing alcohol
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon essential oil, optional
Mix ingredients together. Pour into a pump-style bottle or a squeeze bottle. Use a quarter sized dollop and rub hands together. Wipe residue off of hands with a paper towel.

**Dollar Store has LOTS of hand sanitizer. I stopped by there on a break this afternoon. If you need some, check them out first.
