91% Isopropyl alcohol with a bit of baby oil in it doesn't leave you sticky.

Dawn dish soap is all you need.

I would use 70% isopropyl alcohol, (rubbing alcohol) from the drug store and some all vera you put on a sun burn. It works great and its about $5!

Gin and Vodka are good because they have a high alcohol content. Metholated Spirits is also good with a little lavender oil to stop it drying out your hands. Basically though....hot water and soap will probably do just as well.

soap and water is better than any sanitizer

Not if you aren't rinsing the Dawn off after, and if you are then you don't need the alcohol. Leaving dried Dawn or any other kind of soap or detergent is not a good idea. The whole point of soap is that it allows water to rinse stuff away.

You mean to wash with? If it was used specifically as a hand sanitizer you would have soapy hands. There are several aloe products used for skin care that could probably be combined with alcohol to make sanitizer. 2 parts alcohol to one part aloe.

Just using the Dawn Soap would work quite a treat in of itself.
Viruses are coated in a protein and lipid shell. Lipids is just a fancy word for fat. Dawn breaks down fat and so would do a wonder on the virus.
This is why people have been screaming "Wash your hands."
