Make Hand Sanitizer with Everclear

During this crazy as hell time we are living in, everyone seems to want hand sanitizer.  Lots of places are gearing up and making it. One of my customers is making it, but it smells like hell.

Homemade hand sanitizer is easily made with alcohol and aloe vera.  The CDC recommends hand sanitizer be at least 60% alcohol to be effective.  I make some by using 91% isopropyl alcohol. 6 oz of alcohol, 2 oz of aloe vera gel, mix thoroughly or the gel won't dissolve properly. It comes out to about 68% alcohol. 

Here is a youtube video where a guy is using Everclear which is 95% grain alcohol. The hand sanitizer part starts around 2:20. Be careful and don't smoke around it or you might kill more than the germs.
