But, do you know that you can prepare this product with easily available ingredients? The World Health Organization (WHO) has approved a couple of recipes to prepare the disinfectant to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The YouTube channel “Recipes That Work” shared a tutorial with the two WHO-approved recipes.

Recipe 1


  • 380 ml of 96 ° ethyl alcohol
  • 15 ml of hydrogen peroxide
  • 16 drops of tea tree oil
  • 7.5 ml of glycerol or glycerin 98 percent liquid
  • Boiled water


  1. Serve the alcohol in a measuring container. This will be the base of the disinfectant.
  2. Add the hydrogen peroxide.
  3. Add the 16 drops of tea tree oil and glycerin to avoid hurting your hands with the gel.
  4. Add 500 ml of boiled water
  5. Mix the ingredients for a minute
  6. Let stand for 72 hours before using

Recipe 2


  • 345 ml of 96 ° ethyl alcohol
  • 150 ml of aloe vera
  • 16 drops of tea tree oil


  1. Serve the aloe vera to protect your skin in a measuring container and be the base of this mixture.
  2. Add the tea tree oil drops
  3. Add the alcohol to serve as a disinfectant.

It should be noted that the same WHO has pointed out that NO antibacterial gel is as effective as simply washing your hands for 20 seconds .
