  1. I love this hand sanitizer recipe! I made some bottles for my daughters to take to work and they love them! So do their co-workers. 😉 I also took my bottle to a tailgating party and shared it with everyone 🙂 Everyone loved it! I will be making these as gifts and adding them to my gift baskets. Thank you!

    • You could use rubbing alcohol or witch hazel instead. The vodka, in this recipe, helps kill bacteria and evaporates quickly which are both needed in a hand sanitizer.
