Has anybody had any luck finding hand sanitizer ?

Been trying to find some for my wife as she is a nurse and does need it from time to time .

All of the local stores have been out for a while now and trying to find it online has not worked .

Checked on articles that you can make your own but geeting the right percentage of alcohol in the end and getting the 99% isopropyl alcohol is not easy .

She does say washing hands is the best but there are times when she can't.

The hospital is low on supplies and is very stingy about using what they have , wanted her to reuse a mask for a week but we found a few local that she has as spares.

Not looking to make this political or about price gouging that is going on.

Thanks for any help or sugestions you may have .

Don't they have plenty of gloves at work? That would be my option.

Ask your town clerk. In NY the towns have gallon containers that you can fill up your own QT jar.

Unfortunately even if willing to pay high prices … best pay attention to shipping dates, way out there.

It looks like Pennsylvania breweries are doing the same as Michigan. Have you checked locally???

"Central Pa.’s distilleries make hand sanitizer during shortage to help fight coronavirus"

glass cleaner and cloth towels in my car. towel on lap. left hand on towel, right hand sprays. rub hands together. towel dry. also wipe off steering wheel, shifter, handles. im not being facetious, but im not in the medical world. ive never been a big fan of hand sanitizer, so being unable to find it now isn’t a worry. to me a hand sanitizer is just a stopgap solution until one can get to soap and water.

It seems there must be a surplus of ethanol, somewhere in America. With the dramatic downturn in driving (and hence gasoline sale), there should be plenty available. Maybe there should be a mandate to remove it from gasoline and divert it's use to medical use. laugh

Shhh! Dont tell anyone!

Ajax or Windex glass cleaner.

Its alcohol, water and bit of ammonia and a bit of surfactant!
Perfect!

Our local True Value had gallons of isopropyl the other day. I didn't check the percentage though. Publix had the agar gum in the baking section.

Listerine might work too. Soap works better than all of them.
