    This recipe, using 70% alcohol, creates an approximate 23% alcohol cleaning solution. To disinfect surfaces, use at least a 60% alcohol solution.

    These tutorials are very misleading, probably accidentally but realize this:If you use 70% alcohol and then dilute it by adding the rest of the ingredients here, it will NOT disinfect because it gets diluted below 60%...

    You're right 23-30% alcohol in solution might not work. Switching to an Antibacterial hand soap with 1tsp to 1Tbsp of bleach should do the trick though.

    I’ve been looking for rubbing alcohol for two months! I’m either there right after they’ve sold out or too early before they can unload a semi truck of everything!

    Wipes are sold out in my area and so is alcohol, hand gel..the only thing I can find in my area is bleach and you are only allowed to buy 1 container so I buy it at Sam's or Costco to get the 10 liter one. Lots of paper towels would just turn to mush if let soaking for a long period of time.
