I love trying out diy products. So when I came across hand sanitizer that was great for kids and nursing mom’s I was excited and ready to try it out. I would like to try the one with alcohol one day but haven’t gotten around to it yet. In this post you will see the decorated container I put the Homemade Hand Sanitizer in for my friend.
Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe
I had been taking store bought hand sanitizer and decorating the bottles and gifting them to teacher, principles, family members, and my son’s pediatrician’s office. I did this during Christmas. People that use it on a daily basis. I thought it was a great idea to jazz up something that sits on their desk or counters anyways. I will try to get some pictures of the ones we have and post them later. The No Ordinary Homestead had the recipe I followed for Making Homemade hand sanitizer.
