PostSubject: Homemade Hand Sanitizer   Thu Dec 22, 2011 9:49 am

So I order some water crystals this weekend and I am excited to see them come in. I use to have so much fun playing with this stuff as a kid. I was reading on the internet that you can add this to potted plants to retain moisture and a few other tricks.

It had me thinking, what if you added rubbing alcohol to the water crystals? Would it make like a hand sanitizer solution? Anyone try this?

I will give it a go this weekend and let you know the results, whether it works or I blow a finger off Very Happy

Interesting theory. You'll have to let me know how it goes... And I want damage photos if fingers are blown off.

Why would you need water crystal hand sanitizer?

Don't know yet. I like to soak my tools/tweezers/scissors in alcohol and I waste a lot of the good stuff sanitizing between rat bins.

Add a little food coloring and fashion meets sanitation:

There is a pet shop here that puts all of there frogs (pac mans and such) and other amphibians in that stuff, I guess it could be cricket quencher though...

Yeah, I used it for crickets when I have kept them overnight, but I thought it was kind of weird to house amphibians in it. The pacman looked so uncomfortable and he didn't have anything else just a layer of that!

My dubia colony has that. I buy it in bulk. Never thought of making a sanitizer out of it though.

I'll find out here soon. I hate touching rats and cages then touching other stuff around my snake room so I try to sanitize in between cleaning each cage. I figured if I can buy a gallon of alcohol and have it all gel up, I can reach in and grab a hand full and keep on moving. I hate wasting half a bottle of Purell everytime I clean them.

BTW, this is just something to do for fun.

Here's an actual link to make your own hand sanitizer:

Got a link? I think I paid $7.50 for half a pound and that was the cheapest I could find.
