CoronaVirus: Clean Ingredients for Clean Hands

If you haven’t heard of CoronaVirus or COVID-19, I fear you have been living under a rock. News of more cases and new information about this pandemic dominates the media channels 24/7. All of these sources will tell you the same thing, good hygiene is the best way to keep yourself safe. So I have listed a few do-it-yourself recipes with only a few ingredients to keep your hands and surfaces germ free.

DIY Foaming Liquid Hand Soap

Foaming Hand Soap

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup liquid Castile soap
  • 1 tsp. olive oil (optional)
  • 20 drops essential oil of choice
  • Foaming soap dispenser


Mix each ingredient in the foaming soap dispenser and shake. The olive oil helps the pump from sticking, but is optional. Remember to wash your hands for a good 20 seconds to really get them clean.
