If you need hand sanitizer, check your local Aldi. I live in Nashville and they have plenty of stock. $1.29 / bottle.
Yup, got some on Instacart from Aldi while I was in LA.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

(the exception is if someone is sick, then they should use a mask when in public to prevent the spread of the disease)

Except the fact that the incubation period is very long and spread disease even without being sick. No one knows they have the virus until they develop symptoms and get tested, and by then it's way too late. Not to mention that the sick people don't have any masks because the CDC told them not to buy any.

Good old fashioned soap and water. No need for anti-bacterial anything.
On the go. You wont have soap and water so hand sanitizer is the bext best option.

That is ~double the normal Amazon price I'm sure that's why they're the last ones to sell out.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Amazon brand wipes and hand sanitizers are in and out of stock to select places (lakewood is available a few times a day). And yes, they doubled the price after telling everyone they will make sure their 3rd party sellers dont price gouge.
I'm not who you think I am.

I don't think that's accurate, normal price of these seems to be $10-$15. Once or twice Amazon has a great deal on these for $6-$7, but that was the exception. $5/canister is regular retail price on these.

Charging retail isn't price gouging IMO...

My mistake, but it is around double what you would pay in Costco https://www.costco.com/clorox-disinfecting-wipes,-variety-pack,-85-count,-5-pack.product.100534416.html

No chidush there... There is a reason Costco gets customers and charges to shop there... It's honestly surprising Staples has so much available. All local stores are oos.

I found good stocks at local hardware stores. For example - Ace Hardware.

As someone working for a company that sells hand sanitizer, Amazon's price gouging policies are insane and hypocritical. Charging just over $2 for a bottle of hand sanitizer during a global pandemic is price gouging? Ridiculous.

I have a reverse osmosis water filter. as a Floridian we always keep water, we refill plastic bottles and swap them out every few months.

Sanitizers , just be sure you have bleach and cleaning sprays and towels
