The 15th of October has been decreed a day to focus on germs specifically. It’s the germs on our hand that are in the firing line .The world health organization estimates that 3.5 million children die from diarrhea and lower respiratory tract infections each year.

But for countries like Ethiopia the availability of water even in the capital is not satisfactory and not easily when observing Jimma the society is strongly for the drinking water rather that other water involved activities like keeping sanitation of the body this paper is intended to seek a solution to this problem by introducing and showing the preparation of hand sanitize. By this way the society can prevent disease caused by dirty hand ad since this had sanitizes are capable of removing pathogens 99% the society can be prevented from pathogens and the well-being of the society can be improved and since the availability of the raw material is easy it can be done in house level with creating awareness.
