Station WJLA reports what started as a joke has been put into action by Twin Valley distillers. Twin Valley Distillers in Rockville announced it is now producing and selling 4 ounce bottles of hand sanitizer for $4 and 8 ounce bottles for $6.50.
After a few days of working out a recipe, the company has received federal approval for its product - made using ethanol, glycerol, aloe vera gel, lemongrass oil and Vitamin E oil.
The distillery is limiting sales to two bottles pers customer to prevent hoarding and price gouging reselling.
