make your own sanitizer

Sanitizer can be expensive and hard to find. But you can make your own. It is recommended that you have at least 60% total alcohol content. Studies show that alcohol concentrations below 60% are actually ineffective in eliminating bacteria and in fact actually "mobilize the bacteria, spreading them around the hand instead of killing them."1 Some sanitizers available for purchase do not meet the minimum standard or alcohol content. Read labels carefully to determine their effectiveness.

Sanitizer does not replace the need for a good hand washing with soap and water. Soil, blood and fecal contamination are not eliminated by sanitizer. Sanitizer should be used to supplement, not replace soap and water.
