Skin Sanitizer

Skin Sanitizer

Make up a 5 to 10% solution of food grade alcohol. Food

grade alcohols are grain (ethyl) alcohol or vodka. Find a suitable

dispenser bottle. Mark it with a pen at about one tenth of the

way up from the bottom. Pour 95% grain alcohol (190 proof) to

this mark (for 50% grain alcohol or vodka make your mark one

fifth of the way up). Add water to the top. Keep shut. You may

add a chip of lemon peel for fragrance.

Use this for general sanitizing purposes: bathroom fixtures,

knobs, handles, canes, walkers, and for personal cleanliness (but

use chlorine bleach for the toilet bowl once a week). Always

clean up after a bowel movement with wet toilet paper. This is

not clean enough, though. Follow with a stronger damp paper

towel. This is still not clean enough; use a final damp paper

towel with skin sanitizer added. After washing hands, sanitize

them too, pouring a bit on one palm and put finger tips of the

other hand in it, scratch to get under nails, repeat on other hand.

Rinse with water.

Do not use this recipe, nor keep any bottles of alcohol in the

house of a recovering alcoholic.
