You might have a hard time finding hand sanitizer at any price these days because of concerns about the novel coronavirus. Store shelves are often empty. But one Michigan company is making it and giving it away.
With all the hoarding people are doing, it’s nice to hear about people trying to make things better.
Ann Arbor Distilling Company decided it had the main ingredient you need to make hand sanitizer: alcohol.
Danielle Berridge is the distillery’s tasting room manager. She says they’re using the neutral spirit they use in their gin.
“It’s actually made from local corn. And then we’ve got some aloe gel in there and a little bit of veggie glycerin. And then we also add water to it to bring it down to, I believe, 70%,” she said.
