    Are you potentially coming into contact with the virus that you need hand sanitizer? If you have been staying home using hand sanitizer will only protect you from yourself

    If you mix in 100% alcohol as the virus killer and ensure that 60% or more of the resulting mixture is the alcohol by volume. But lotion alone will have little to no effect on viruses.

    Not unless it is 70% alcohol or contains some other kind of anti-viral property.  Or in other words it is extremely unlikely to be effective.  If you want to make your own sanitizer you are better off with diluted bleach.  You might want some hand cream after that though.
