Today I’m sharing a super quick and easy DIY hand sanitizer recipe.  While I prefer washing my hands if I can, that’s not always an option, so hand sanitizer is definitely one of my handbag essentials.

For this recipe, you will need:

Part of what makes this recipe super easy is that there is no formal measuring – which means less things to clean up!  Everything goes straight into the glass amber bottle.
