STATEWIDE — At least four people in Indiana have tested positive for the coronavirus, with another child at Avon schools showing symptoms.
With more people getting tested, you may be wondering what you can do to stay healthy.
One major thing that public health experts are advising is to clean your hands with either soap and water, or an alcohol-based solution, like hand sanitizer, to avoid infection.
Doctors say that hand sanitizer doesn’t kill all viruses, but it is effective against the coronavirus, meaning hand sanitizer has been flying off store shelves.
However, if you don’t want to take a trip to your local grocery store you can make hand sanitizer right at home.
If you make your own the sanitizer must have at least 60% alcohol to be effective. You can use rubbing alcohol or ethanol, and adding aloe vera will make it easier to apply. Also, if you don’t want to smell like rubbing alcohol you can add essential oils to mask the smell.
2/3 cup rubbing alcohol
1/3 cup aloe vera gel
5-10 drops of essential oil
Once you have all the ingredients you simply mix them in a bowl until blended and use a funnel to move it into a container.
