You know those little hand sanitizer bottles that come in a plastic thing that can hang from a girls’ belt buckle? They are supposed to be all cute and trendy, I think. Don’t get me wrong, they are cute, but we don’t allow hand sanitizer in our house. So it is now something that I have to figure out what to do with… without feeling totally wasteful and throwing it away.
Samantha has gotten them as part of birthday presents or as part of party favor bags. When she has gotten them we just dump out the hand sanitizer. To me, it belongs in the trash. ( I apologize if you don’t understand why I feel this way. It’s too much information for this post… it needs a post all on it’s own.)
So, now we have this empty bottle with a super cute holder. Samantha really likes them and frankly, I do too… if they weren’t filled with hand sanitizer.
If you are in the same boat we are and have received these, but don’t quite know what to do with them, I have a solution for you.
Put oil in the bottle! Any oil (that is good for you) will do. We have used olive oil, which is actually really good for your skin, in case you didn’t know. Other ideas for you are, vitamin E oil, natural lotion, and Moringa Source oil (which is what is in her current bottle).
Editing to add: My friend, Marcy, over at Ben and Me, shared a recipe for hand sanitizer using essential oils for all you essential oil lovers out there! I thought I would share it with you guys. :)
Now, your daughter (or you!) can use these cute holders without having to use the yucky for your health hand sanitizer!
