Austin-based Vodka company tweets that it isn't strong enough for a homemade solution.
Our Hands are Clean
Due to hand-sanitizers being sold out, media outlets have informed their audiences of recipes for homemade hand-sanitizers. Unfortunately, not all Vodkas are created equal.
Austin-based Vodka company, Tito's Vodka, tweeted that its brand does't cut it.
Titos Vodka Comes Clean
"Per the CDC, hand sanitizer needs to contain at least 60% alcohol. Tito's Handmade Vodka is 40% alcohol, and therefore does not meet the current recommendation" they tweeted.
Officials Acknowledge Vodka
The CDC acknowledges that people can use hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol, but officials say the effective way to protect yourself from the coronavirus is by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Please share this:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your coughs and sneezes. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
Remember to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
