  • Amazon’s best-selling face masks are still among the most important tools out there for protecting yourself from the novel coronavirus, as long as you also practice social distancing.
  • Of course, there’s one more thing that’s just as important if you want to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep yourself from getting infected: Hand sanitizer.
  • Purell is still impossible to find in stores and it will be for quite some time, but Amazon has several best-selling alternatives in stock right now including very strong sanitizer with 80% alcohol.

By now you must have visited the CDC’s coronavirus page in order to ensure that you’re following all the guidelines to keep you and your family safe. That means a few things in particular. First and foremost, you need to wear a face mask anytime you leave your house for any reason at all, whether it’s to go to the grocery store or just to take a walk around town. Simple 3-ply masks like Amazon’s best-selling face masks are more than enough to do the job — you don’t need a medical-grade N95 respirator since you’ll also be practicing strict social distancing. You can pick up some KN95 masks to use in higher-risk areas like public transportation or in small stores, but those 70¢ 3-layer masks are more than good enough for most situations.

In addition to face masks, there’s something else you need that’s just as important: hand sanitizer. Purell is still impossible to find anywhere, of course, but there are now several other options in stock at Amazon. In fact, several of them are even stronger than Purell with higher alcohol content!

The strongest hand sanitizer you can get right now on Amazon is Chemical Guys HYG10016 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer, which is available right now for just $9.99 per 16-ounce spray bottle. At just 62¢ per fluid ounce, the price is surprisingly low considering how strong it is. We have no doubt that it’ll sell out fast though, so definitely grab a few bottles now while you still can.

In addition to Chemical Guys sanitizer, you’ll find 8-ounce spray bottles of Zatural Hand Sanitizer in stock and 2-packs are only $17.99 right now. They ship quickly compared to other options and they also have moisturizers mixed in so you don’t have to worry about drying out your hands. This hand sanitizer is a 62% ethyl alcohol mix, so it’s also very strong and has a higher alcohol content than the CDC’s minimum recommendations.

This brand is a best-seller that has been out of stock for quite a while now, but they’re on their way back according to the Amazon page so definitely order now while you can.
