Hand soap is one of the best weapons against the novel coronavirus. Scientists recommend using any soap, since it's the lather created by soap that's proven to kill COVID-19. So you might be wondering where to buy hand soap right now. 

Fortunately, buying hand soap online isn't as difficult as you may think. Yes, a lot of retailers are running low on stock, but others are doing an excellent job of keeping their inventory fresh. 

When using hand soap, the Centers for Disease Control recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren't available, the CDC recommends using hand sanitizer.
