(KGTV) - Can Tito's Vodka really be used in an effective homemade hand sanitizer?

No.

Social media posts are going around recommending people use the booze in do-it-yourself sanitizer recipes.

But Tito's put out a tweet noting that CDC guidelines recommend hand sanitizer contain at least 60% alcohol. Tito's only has 40%.

The CDC says washing your hands is by far the best way to get rid of germs. But if you use a hand sanitizer, make sure it meets that 60% alcohol threshold.
