As we all know, the coronavirus, or covid-19, has been rising with new cases daily. However, we can prevent the increased cases by sanitizing our hands while in public. The coronavirus can live on surfaces for days, however, by using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% ethyl alcohol, will kill the envelope protein that surrounds the virus destroying its need for survival and multiplication. So next time you are running one errand or multiple errands, it is very important to use hand sanitizer after every visit. Doing so will limit your exposure to covid-19 and prevent the spread to others.
So you may ask yourself if you can make your own hand sanitizer because it smells better, it is less sticky or because you simply cannot find a sanitizer that works well for your skin. Well, I hate to break the news to you, but this can make your skin much worse than any FDA approved sanitizer. The FDA does not recommend making your own sanitizer as it can be ineffective or give some people skin burns. In addition, adding alcohol to a non-alcohol based sanitizer will not kill the coronavirus. Instead, there are now multiple hand sanitizers out there that offer many perks. Fortunately, Sani+Pak (homepage link), has developed single-use hand sanitizer gel packets that are easy to use while on-the-go.
