Prepper Santitizer

When you need to sanitize or disinfect surfaces against unhealthy germs, there are a few time tested & proven methods. 

The first is chlorine bleach.  Concentrations vary from 9 to 47 parts of water to 1 part of bleach depending on the bleach used (low cost versions are weaker).  

For a strong disinfectant, my family adds 2-1/4 cup of water to 1/4 cups of regular bleach with 6% Sodium Hypochlorite, which is adding 9 parts of water to 1 part bleach.   

If you are using Performance Bleach (8% Sodium Hypochlorite), it is suggested that you add 1/2 cup of bleach to a 1 gallon jug and then fill it up with water (31:1 ratio)

Regular bleach (without additives) can also be used to disinfect water, making it safe for drinking.  Which leads us into our next method of sanitizing. 

Our second method is hot water. Obviously boiling items in water disinfects them, but washing your hands in hot water does the same, and should not be forgotten.

Our third method is alcohol which can be made using a still and has many other uses.  Click here to see 45 uses for alcohol.  You can make alcohol by distilling a fermented mash made from sugar and yeast.  

This would be good to remember during a Pandemic.
