Hand sanitizers vanished from store shelves after the coronavirus hit America like a tidal wave in March. Many stores are having difficulty keeping the bottles in stock.

Hoarders and opportunists took advantage of the health crisis to earn big bucks by selling hand sanitizers online at absurd markups.

If you can’t find any hand sanitizers in local stores, don’t worry. Dr. Ian Smith will show you how to make your own hand sanitizer.

Purchase empty pump bottles (plastic or glass) from Amazon or eBay and fill the bottles with your own hand sanitizer. Never buy hand sanitizer again!

And remember, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
