Corona virus is spreading like wildfire across the globe. In Indonesia too we must all be careful as prevention is the key. For that reason, we must prepare by stocking up on face masks and hand sanitizers. Unfortunately, both of these items are hard to find. Make your own hand sanitizer at home for emergencies!
