Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe

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.
