Covid-19 coronavirus is spread through salivary droplets emitted during coughing or sneezing, but it can also be spread through contaminated objects. Apart from using the Hydroalcoholic gel to combat the spread of the virus, the government has issued recommendations:
- Wash your hands regularly
- Cough and sneeze into his elbow
- No more shaking hands
- Use single-use tissues
- Wear a mask when you are sick
When the coronavirus began to spread in World, the outlets were quickly emptied of their stock of anti-bacterial solutions. These products sold in bottles are sanitizing and skin solutions which are used to disinfect the hands. Because of the shortage of hydroalcoholic gels, their price had increased sharply, but the government decided to introduce fixed costs: $2 for the 50ml bottle and $3 maximum for the 100ml bottle. They will be maintained until May 31, 2020.
How to properly use hydroalcoholic gels?
First thing: do not use hydroalcoholic gel on wet hands. More importantly, apply them on dry hands. These solutions are not a substitute for washing with hot water and soap, as they do not completely clean your hands. But in the absence of water or soap, they can be useful.
Can we make our own sanitizing solution?
Here at Review and Shop, we will tell you how to make your own hand sanitizer in this coronavirus epidemic. To compensate for the absence of hydroalcoholic gels in our pharmacies or our supermarkets, you can make them in a few steps:
- Remember to disinfect your bottle and utensils with alcohol at 70°C, to eliminate any germs.
Then pour into your container, 3 tablespoons of alcohol at 70°C
- 3 tablespoons of glycerin.
- 3 tablespoons aloe vera gel.
- 46 drops of lavender essential oil (essential oils being very allergenic, remember to test them upstream on a small part of your skin).
- 18 drops of tea tree essential oil
For this hydroalcoholic gel recipe, you will need a small container of about 75 ml. Do not forget to note the date of preparation, since the solutions made by hand do not keep for more than three months.
