How To Be A Hand Sanitizer For Halloween 2020

What could be more perfect for a 2020 Halloween costume than a bottle of hand sanitizer? If you need a last minute costume idea, this one is easy to put together with things you probably already have!

We created this costume as part of a challenge for Pittsburgh Today Live! Take a look at our segment with Heather Abraham:

Pittsburgh Live

Here are the hand sanitizer costume instructions and after that the printables for you to download the lettering (made by the talented Chloe of Sweet Baby Paper Company!)

And for everyone who guessed what the costume would be, come to Facebook at 12:30 EST today for the live drawing of the winners!!! (And Deb will be wearing her hand sanitizer costume!)
