If you are terrified that the evil swine flu is going to take you to your grave and you feel buying a million bottles of Purell would just be too costly then make the stuff at home. Personally, I put swine flu in the same category as killer bees and sars. Is there a risk? Yes! Is it as great of a risk as the major news networks want you to believe it is? NO!
They get paid in advertising revenues so the more scared you are, the more you are going to tune in, the more they are going to get paid. I digress, on to the hand sanitizer recipe brought to you by: lifehacker
In a small bowl, mix √Ç¬º cup each of pure aloe vera gel and grain alcohol with 5 drops of tea tree essential oil. To make it smell less pungent, add 5 drops of your favorite fragrance oil. Using a funnel, pour this blend into a bottle small enough to stash in your purse. (Rinse out an empty tube of makeup or lotion to make use of waste.)
