DIY Hand Sanitizer
This week I took a little road trip, and I noticed something. I've been guilty of keeping a bottle of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer in my car, and I am ready to repent. Because I often travel with my big stinky dog, some sort of cleaner is still needed. I figured if this recipe is good enough for my kitchen counter top, surely it will work for hands:
1 part white vinegar
9 parts water
optional drops of lemon or rosemary oil
Sure it's a little wet (not like a gel), but you'll live. The trick was finding a spray bottle to fit in my car's cup holder. But I was glad to have it when the only thing available at the dog park was a port-a-potty! I took the whole spray bottle in there with me! I even spritzed it on the car seats to get some of the dog smell out... turns out it's way more useful than that toxic antibacterial hand gel.
