Does anyone have a recipe for after shave lotion for a man? Nothing fancy, just basic.
Margaret from BBC, AZ
I have made my own for years, becuase I don't think men should smell like flowers!
100 mL 95% ethanol (ethyl alcohol)
100mL distilled water
20 mL isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
scent/fragrance to preference (I use musk oil)
I also add a small amount (~2 mL) QAC/antiseptic solution like Solyptol or Detol
A mix of half apple cider vinegar and half water works well, and once it dries doesn't smell like anything.
Witch hazel is a fine traditional aftershave, available at drug stores and discount stores. At my Wal-Mart a bottle costs only $1.44.
