Activity Description

Here's a simple DIY Hand Sanitizer recipe to make and carry with you! In order for the sanitizer to be as effective as possible, it must contain at least 60–70% alcohol. This can be either isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol. Only at these concentrations and higher can the alcohol destroy the lipid membranes of viruses and microorganisms, killing any pathogenic microorganisms. Strong alcoholic beverages are not suitable for this purpose, as their alcohol concentration is not high enough. Glycerin is added to the antiseptic as a moisturizer, and hydrogen peroxide is needed to destroy the spores of various bacteria that could potentially be in the solution. The prepared solution needs to sit for a time, as this will allow the hydrogen peroxide to completely destroy any bacterial spores that may be present in the mixture.
