“Many thanks to the hard-working blokes at Underground Spirits making hand sanitizer for Heath workers. With your advice, we managed to get 700 ml at 80%. When diluted with Bio-Oil to condition the hands, it is still 73%. We will be sure to get our nursing student daughter whatever personal protection she is eligible for. But at least she goes to her home away from home with a starter stock. I’ll use the rest of the cleaning products.
