LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Alcohol distilleries in Nevada are solving the hand sanitizer shortage by turning their attention to the product to help customers.

Distilleries are combining their key ingredient - germ killing ethanol - with Aloe vera or other chemicals to make hand sanitizer.

The Centers for Disease Control says solutions of at least 70% alcohol are effective.
