    I stand corrected then. But, it's still a waste of good booze...

    the OP said they were deputies. Kinda hard to wash your hands in a patrol car.

    I am a field service tech, so I spend most of my day in a service van. It's not that hard to put a gallon jug of water and some soap in the trunk.
    That would be a lot better than getting caught with an open bottle of 100+ proof alcohol in the car. Lol

    New I appreciate the information, no problem admitting a mistake. Best to keep misinformation low at a time like this. and yes i believe that is what he is doing. He's also making small bottles to donate, no clue where though. He did give us 5 gallons to keep us in production.

    For anyone needing sanitizer/isopropyl alcohol to sanitize with, and can't find any, go to your local auto parts store. Buy the HEET in the red bottle. It's 98.5% isopropyl alcohol. Put it in a spray bottle and sanitize away...... go forth and clean out the shelves!!!

    I have used this for cleaning, but the percentage of alcohol is higher than optimal for killing bacteria and viruses and the proprietary ingredients are listed as toxic on the msds so applying it to skin routinely is not a great option.

    You ever dealt with the public like a deputy does? They deal with the most nasty and disgusting people out there. The need to sanitize their hands immediately is not just for the virus. They do this daily. Yes they use gloves when time permits but sometimes you just get caught bare handed and after all is said and done you don't want to ride around looking for a sink. You want to get the filth off immediately.

    I’m in the Everclear grain alcohol camp. If you can’t find the aloe vera, still use the Everclear. Just be sure to lick your fingers and palms, not much will matter after that.

    Gasoline is the universal solvent on the farm, we never actually bathed in it but often smelled like we did. Plenty of toxins I’m sure, but don’t know if it kills viruses. Could mix up a gel with extruded polystyrene, but my recollection is that it sticks pretty good.

    Yea he's a nice guy...i got no idea bout the price but the bottle seems like a fancy bottle for hand sanitizer. I think he's using existing product to get it out faster. Either way, I'm not a salesman, but i know he's got it in stock right now if any of you are in need. Stay safe my fellow gun nuts.

    OK guys, you got my interests. Back in the 70's I bought a bottle of grain alcohol (190% proof) and now thinking how to make hand sanitizer. Do you get the Aloe from a pharmacy? If so, what do I look for?
    From what I can see, you mix it 4:1 ratio.

    I think my guy uses vegetable glycerine. Don't hold me to it though, It's fairly liquidy but doesn't dry out your skin...

    I have a gallon of glycerin, but if you mix it 30% glycerin and 70% alcohol you get some very slimy liquid stuff. I’m going to look at the WHO formula and try again. I think they cut the alcohol down with boiled water and hydrogen peroxide.

    Went to a couple pharmacies looking for Aloe or glycerin and nobody had it in stock. That got me thinking. Back a year or so ago, I was trying to make my own shell case lube with 99% alcohol and some lubricant that was used for ladies used on there nipples while nursing. Will I have about 3 whole sprayers of the mixture. I am sure that needs some more alcohol to make it a sanitzer. ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS IDEA?

    Next question, I have some propylene glycol that I use in my humidor. Do you think that might work mixed with the grain alcohol?

    The pharmacist said if I can not find any Aloe or glycerin, just use straight alcohol.

    This particular virus is killed by higher concentrations of alcohol, some things are not. I’d dilute it a little with water just to slow down the evaporation. If you use just alcohol or alcohol and water you’ll want to moisturize after since it sucks all the oil off your skin.

    I’d be happy to send you a little glycerin, but not sure if I can mail a liquid.

    the aloe formula isn’t slimy, it’s kinda sticky. I don’t like it either.

    not sure what you have for nipple lube, but maybe lanolin based. Lanolin plus alcohol and water would probably work good. As with the glycerin, not too much lanolin

    Lanolin is what I was thinking of. Not sure what mixture I used but I know that I used 99% alcohol because I had the get it from a beauty supply store.

    Friend who works at the Trader Joe's in Cary said they have had hand sanitizer in stock regularly. It's toilet paper that sells out every morning...

    Did you ever find any? I have two bottles that I can donate. The only problem I have is getting to the post office to get it out.

    Thank you feesix! I am trying to make some here with the grain alcohol and a couple lubricants that I have on hand.
    This is why I love the group, members are willing to help others.
