Finding hand sanitizer are virtually impossible nowadays. Stores in my area haven’t restocked on hand sanitizers for months. Luckily I have been able to find hand sanitizers online and when I post it on my deals page they sell out within minutes. I know it’s frustrating that these basic things we need are not available.
Since it has been difficult for my friends and family to find hand sanitizer I have opted to make my own. Luckily I found the ingredients I needed to make the hand sanitizers at my local store.
