To be honest with you, you should not do this. There are so many sites right now that tell you this is not safe to do and using hand soap and water is a lot safer than adding alcohol to wipes to make your own. If you can not buy the correct ones do not try tomake these to use. it is best to take a good bar of hand soap, some hot water, and scrub away. You will get off a lot more germs this way than with your wipes. I am so sorry but all the searches I have done say the same thing.

You do need sanitize wipes in your car for when you come out of the store and anywhere else you wouldn't have water and soap

I don't think the thing about homemade sanitizing wipes is, replacing hand washing with these, but, having them when your out and can't get to where you can wash your hands, or for wiping off door handles, etc. you might need to touch.

I don't understand why people keep doing this when actual disinfecting wipes re not that expensive & freely available. So saying, just pour in the whole thing. Also I have heard that oddly 70% lcohol is better than 99%. www.maxill.com/.../alcohols-70-99-isopropyl-alcohol...

Some people in the U.S. have been having quite a problem finding them in stock. Regular soap and water will clean surfaces and kill coronavirus, just like it will clean your hands.

I couldn't find any information about 70% being more effective than 99% in the link you provided. It basically said that the 99% and the 70% are the same, but the 70% is diluted with water. I did find this link that states that the addition of water helps kill the virus. Very interesting.

As most people are making their own cleaners or hand sanitizer, they are already mixing it to about the same percentage so it should work about as well. However, it's probably better to buy the commercial products directly if you can get them, as they will be formulated correctly.

Right now there is nine to be found so the best thing to do is make our own
