Where to buy hand sanitizer - tips

The nationwide race to flatten the COVID-19 curve is causing consumers to bulk-buy hand sanitizer. As a result, finding hand sanitizer online is very tricky, but still possible if you're persistent and constantly check retailers for stock. Also, keep in mind that stores like Target, Publix, and Kroger are placing limitations on the number of hand sanitizer and cleaning products that people can buy. 

In some good news, Amazon Prime Pantry is back online after temporarily closing due to coronavirus-related demand. The site currently has stock, albeit low, of hand soaps and disinfectant.  

In addition to hand sanitizer, washing your hands is the first step in our essential coronavirus tips checklist. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol or higher. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has created a list of recommended coronavirus cleaning products.

Make sure to follow our guide on where to buy cleaning supplies and where to buy latex gloves as they're selling out often too.
