Chatting in a shop today I was told that hand sanitiser is being sold for a premium on eBay. I checked, a 50 ml bottle of gel that cost 49p in Lidl is being offered via the online marketplace for £14.50, identical products.
I also saw somewhere an article on how to make your own hand sanitiser. I didn’t take a lot of notice but I think it involved vodka and essential oils. My suggestion would be to drink the booze and take a scented bath
Last night on our local tv news people in our town, where we already have one confirmed case of corona virus, people were being interviewed about their concerns. Several said they were worried then there on the screen was our lovely 87 year old neighbour. Margaret. Bright as a button she said she wasn’t concerned she was washing her hands with soap and relying on that.
Two kinds of people, I know which I prefer. I’ve already told Margaret she deserves an Oscar, the opportunists deserve to be locked up for exploitation.
Mr FF and I have never used hand sanitiser, we use soap. I was brought up on a farm where hygiene was never a strong point, I was probably exposed to a lot of germs, my immunity is high. Neither my brother nor I have ailed anything and we are either side of 70.
Don’t think I’m not taking the situation seriously, I did offer to knit Mr FF a mask. He declined but I wonder if they’d sell on eBay?
