Personal Safety Kits

Kits ready to be sent to family.

I’ve spent my time at home preparing for Coronavirus. I posted a recipe for DIY hand sanitizer last week. This week I will send family members small personal safety kits to keep in their car or purse. I stocked each one with hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes and disposable gloves.

DIY Hand Sanitizer

Lots of DIY hand sanitizer recipes circulating on the internet today. My local news last night reported that a bottle of hand sanitizer is going for $ 25 dollars. Wow – Thought I’d share a recipe that I ran across. It comes from a fantastic DIYer named Kelly Barlow. Her You Tube channel is Kelly Barlow Creations.

The recipe is very simple a 2:1 ratio of rubbing alcohol to aloe gel. I found 91% rubbing alcohol at both Krogers and Walmart. I used Aloe Gel (without lidocaine) from the Dollar Tree. I used travel bottles from the Dollar Tree. Total cost was 5.00 for 6 bottles. That comes out to 83 cents per bottle.

So easy to make. If you cannot get 91% rubbing alcohol – it is recommended to use at least 70% rubbing alcohol. Let’s all make some and keep our families healthy.

Call To Action

We see the terror in the world every day. The few and strong have suffered from it as well.

I would imagine it was a typical fun Saturday out to let some steam off, get loose, and have a good time.

  I spent most of my 20’s there. The Oregon district in Dayton, Ohio. Many great memories. Many fun times. I had the over- drinking times as well and didn’t get mistreated. It was safe. I was never worried or scared.

This hit me hard when I woke up to this news.

There was a shooting in the Oregon District. Nine people lost their lives. Many others wounded.

Everyone is scared.  I started remembering the times I had there and felt sad.

It’s taken me all this time to process what has happened.  Things are rapidly changing around the world.

People are losing their lives over nothing. Parents are without children. Lovers lost.

Our fun, happy place is now where we go to mourn. Everyone is crying. No one can have fun.

Why is this happening?
