    My 2 step sons are deputies in Berkley County SC. They are almost out of hand sanitizer and the department does not have any more. If any of you have any to spare, I'd be more than happy to buy it from you at a premium price and pay shipping to get some to them. There is none to be found around Florence. If you don't catch a truck delivering to a store, it doesn't last 10 minutes. Shoot me a PM if you can be of any assistance.
    Thanks

    This is absolutely ridiculous!

    Not your request, but the fact that you're having to request it.

    Edit: That being said, if anyone can score some Purina One chicken and rice dog food, that would be great. Our pos Walmart shoppers wiped out the dog food here.

    Everclear. Put it is a squeeze bottle. I got a bottle after the run on sanitizer. This is an option.

    That ^

    2/3 cup of everclear and 1/3 cup aloe. A little tea tree oil wouldn't hurt either

    I went to the grocery store earlier and was thinking about going by the ABC while I was out. 20 people lined up outside waiting. Crazy times we are in.

    I got extra EverClear recently, just in case. I used it years ago for all my DIY stuff and fuel for my camp stoves in a pinch....that stuff will sanitize anything!

    Good thing about dogs is they will eat any type dog food if they get hungry. Might not be the first choice in quality, but at least they won't starve.

    That's just an excuse in case someone sees you going in the liquor store. I've already heard about the wild parties in Wagram!!!

    I saw that last week and looked into it, it's poisonous and your skin will absorb it.

    Denatured Alcohol has methanol, which is a poison, in it so I’d steer clear of that for repeated use.

    Thank you, I never knew that. I used it to clean dye off my hands all time. Maybe I better look for another product.

    Lemon essential will kill virus’s also. If you got real essential oil not the Wally World .05%
    garbage buy the real McCoy like Young Living or similar quality brand they say as long as you can smell the Lemon it’s active.

    This is the recipe I am following since we couldn’t find hand sanitizer online or in stores. This is more of a spray but works if you spray a paper towel

    I did, and it was in stock. It'll be 7 to 10 days before it ships, but the dogs are covered till then.

    Also, plenty of squirrels in the neighborhood.

    Mouthwash in a spray bottle also works well as a hand sanitizer.

    Quit buying Listerine around here after I heard it kills germs on contact. Didn't like the thought of anything dying in my mouth

    This isn’t just a local problem.

    See if you can find a local distiller. They produce a couple kinds of alcohol that aren’t great for drinking, but that are good for sanitizer. Some are starting to make it, and the proposed federal bill has some language about paying them. Most are giving it away free to first responders.

    AB has started doing that on a grand scale out here.

    “That’s why we are using our supply and logistics network to begin producing and distributing bottles of hand sanitizer to accommodate the growing needs across the United States.”

    We started getting hand sanitizer at work from our uniform supply company (Unifirst). He keeps the Purell refills for the automated dispensers.

    Make your own, my wife did.

    Rotgut cheap vodka, at least 100 proof
    Aloe gel
    Some other scent

    The formula is on the net. Save the good vodka for internal medicinal purposes.

    The label company i work for has a liquor client that has converted his business to hand sanitizer only. 100 proof mixed with a little aloe... Not the same amount bc aloe is now in shortage. still its a liquid that gets the job done. Hes supplying unc hospital so i guess it works. Even putting it in 5th bottles and just slapping the label over the liquor label thats already on the bottle. Says he cant produce it fast enough.

    no No NO NO!

    To be effective the product has to be at least 60% alcohol by volume. 100 proof vodka is 50%, nothing you add will increase that. You really need to start at 70%, 140 proof, and add just enough aloe to limit how much your skin dries out. If all you have is something 120-140 proof then use it straight and plan to use some lotion on your hands.

    If you start with 99% or something like everclear at 95% you need some additional dilution, apparently the pure alcohol evaporates too quickly so is slightly less effective.

    Target 60%-70% for the final product.

    May not be the best for skin, and you wouldn't want it on your clothes, but why not mix an ounce or two of clorox with a quart of water? Bleach kills everything, and one gallon of bleach will make a lot of it.

    I use bleach for sanitizing hard surfaces, spray it on and let it dry, but it’s really hard on the skin. Use it for a few days and you’ll have the skin peeling off your hands. Until things get really really bad, that treatment would not be worth the associated risk.

    i stand corrected, the liquor bottle label says 100 proof, but the new label we are producing to go over that says >60%.....it must be old bottles that were already labeled.

    Sorry, wasn’t responding to you. The distillers normally produce over-proof alcohol that they have no use for, it doesn’t taste good, converting it to sanitizer production makes good sense at this time. Also looks line the gov’t is going to start paying them to do so.
