No, you can’t use Vodka to make homemade hand sanitizer

Dallas Morning News

Vodka is a sought-after remedy for many things, but the coronavirus panic-driven lack of hand sanitizer is forcing one Texas vodka brand to clarify its limitations.

Tito’s Vodka appears to have spent time recently notifying a number of fans on Twitter that its spirits don’t contain high enough concentrations of alcohol to properly fend off germs.

“As soon as we saw the incorrect articles and social posts, we wanted to set the record straight,” a spokesperson for Tito’s said in a statement provided to The Dallas Morning News. “While it would be good for business for our fans to use massive quantities of Tito’s for hand sanitizer, it would be a shame to waste the good stuff, especially if it doesn’t sanitize (which it doesn’t, per the CDC).”
