When you want to protect your kids from germs, it seems like a no brainer to reach for hand sanitizer–it’s portable, it’s easy, and with a little squeeze and rub of the hands, you’re good to go. Unfortunately, however, there’s a trade off for that convenience. To effectively kill bacteria, hand sanitizer needs to contain at least 60% alcohol, not to mention all the other chemicals swirling inside there. And anyone with kids knows how the little ones can’t help but put their hands (not covered in alcohol and chemicals) into their mouths. That’s why we recommend investing in hand sanitizer made with natural ingredients. And while you can find those safer and more environmentally friendly options at the store, we’ve rounded up a cheap and easy way to make your own natural hand sanitizer at home.
