Mixing 65ml of 95% alcohol with 35ml of aloe vera gel is still going to yield a very watery end product. It's not too different than mixing 75:25.

Also, taking into account that alcohol will gradually evaporate, it makes more sense to use a ~70% product, which overtime would become a ~60% product if you're not using them up fast enough. Whereas if you mixed a 60% batch, it becomes ineffective over time as that alcohol concentration falls below 60%.

I have a large supply of hand sanitizers, enough for my whole company. I'm distributing them shortly as a psychological reassurance more than anything else. The 70% preparation we have is effective against COVID-19, but more than anything else, it's just optics and comfort for employees.

My belief is that it's best to approach this stuff soberly, and 'man up' ... as non-PC as that reads in 2020.

Proper hand hygiene is a good public health measure against communicable disease including CV19.

>60% is fine. Source: IPAC, above 60% up to 90%, references 8,9,10,11

Which references the CDC, 60-95%, click the “+” beside Reference for more:

If there is a reputable peer-reviewed source that says we must use 70% or greater against specifically SARS-CoV-2, please post.

Also shows human mentality at work - herd driven behaviour

I also stocked up on food yesterday too FYI so not saying I’m exempt. But good to reflect on the psyche perhaps

The Costco in Kingston was giving out Lysol wipes for cart handles and latex gloves for those who wanted them.
They should have hand sanitizer at the checkouts, because almost EVERYONE uses the pin pad.

FWIW I looked in my pantry, and my freezer, and I have at least 2 weeks, probably closer to a month, foodwise. Cooking for 10 when you only have 4, so you have leftovers to freeze and bring to work as lunch, is a very convenient technique sometimes.

Ya, saw that at my local Costco and laughed. They gave you the wipes AFTER you already picked up the cart and wheeled it into the store, what's the point of that?

Just like most of airport security, this is theatre.

I cleaned my hands and then the whole outer handle of the card where you hold it. (most people touch only that part of the cart only)
