How To Distill Hand Sanitizer Into Alcohol Fuel

“Stove Secrets” – Alcohol stove builds, tips, tricks, and secrets for the true DIY gear junkie. No fancy or expensive tools & machinery required! In this episode I demonstrate a simple method for how to distill hand sanitizer into a viable alternative alcohol stove fuel. Although not the most efficient fuel source, distilled hand sanitizer can indeed be used as an alternate or emergency fuel. The distilling process separates the additives and moisturizers from the gel, as well as renders it into a liquid form of ethanol. It can be used in certain pressurized stoves, but is most effective when used in a very basic metal container type “stove” in combination with a pot stand. The major benefit to this fuel is that it is commonly carried and the stove system can be easily improvised in-the-field.
