Dry hand sanitizer will help you limit the transmission of corona virus, as recommended by many doctors and health organizations around the world.

The status of coronavirus has not shown signs of settling down and people are very interested in prevention according to the recommendations of the Ministry of Health as well as the guidance of the WHO.

One of the ways to prevent the spread of corona virus is to wash your hands with soap or dry hand wash if you cannot wash them with water. Given the current situation of dry hand sanitizer, many people are looking to buy, so why not try to make your own dry hand sanitizer according to WHO guidelines if you have not equipped yourself with a hand sanitizer bottle?

WHO has formulated a self-concoction of dry hand sanitizers with some notes, including the formula for preparing 10 liters of hand sanitizer, the volume of each preparation should not exceed 50 liters.

  2. Continue to measure 417ml of hydrogen peroxide and add it to the container.
