 I have a couple of bottles. They were bought pre-crisis. I don't intend on making sanitiser out of them though

 I have about 6 bottles of rubbing alcohol and before you judge me, we are farmers and live well out of town. No we won't be needing it to make sanitiser as we rarely have contact with people but we do have plenty of accidents which need disinfectant for. When we go into town (2 or 3 times a year) we stock up. We had this supply 6 months ago so we didn't gather it during this crisis. We do have family in town so we will be giving them some bottles. We'll just wait until our next stockup to hopefully get some more but if we can't, well we'll have to figure out something else :)

 Mix the alcohol with aloe Vera and essential oils to make your own sanitizer. Should be 60% alcohol ratio

I don’t know but remember warm soap and water, wearing gloves and staying away are also effective. If you’re out, don’t touch your face until you’ve thoroughly washed your hands.
