Distilleries are using their own alcohol to create hand sanitizers to help with the current demand, according to CNN. Old Fourth Distillery in Atlanta started giving out their solution–made from 95 percent ethanol and aloe vera gel–on Thursday.
“Due to the recent reports of outages and low supply in our community, we have decided to provide hand sanitizer free of charge to anyone in need,” the distillery posted online. “This is no substitute for washing your hands, but in a pinch it will get the job done…If you have a container, please bring it and we will be happy to fill it!”
By Saturday, their supply ran out, although they expect more ingredients to come in. Moonrise Distillery in Clayton, Georgia, is making sanitizer with natural aloe vera and botanical gin. Both distilleries are accepting donations to offset costs. And Durham Distillery in Durham, North Carolina, is donating their own solution to hospitality workers so they can wipe down high-traffic areas.
