Now that it’s almost time to go back to school, we’ve been gearing up with all sorts of school supplies.  Even though we homeschool our family, we still take advantage of the best deals on school supplies.

We also take the opportunity to stock up on our wellness supplies this time of year, too!

For years and years we carried harsh alcohol based hand cleaners with us.  There was always one in the diaper bag, a back pocket, or my purse.  

You never quite know when your hands, or your child’s hands may need to be cleaned!

I never appreciated the sticky feeling of the alcohol based gels, either.  Not to mention how dry our hands would feel if we used them often.

Maybe you’ve felt the same way?

Thankfully I discovered this simple hand cleaner option that uses aloe as the base and essential oils to clean!

Simple DIY Waterless Hand Cleaner

I love this waterless hand cleaner so much because it is so kind to my skin.  I also love how well it works.

I’ve got a bottle of the Thieves infused cleaner in my purse and the Fresh Hands Blend in my kitchen.

Here are some of the awesome things I’ve noticed since we started using this type of hand cleaner:

  • No more dry or sticky feeling hands.
  • The hand cleaner completely absorbs.
  • It leaves my hands looking and feeling very clean.
  • Tough hand smells are a thing of the past.  I can use this after slicing onions, garlic, or preparing fish and it helps take away the smell.
  • It’s just so super simple to make.
