  • There’s no question that Purell hand sanitizer is still very hard to find in stores as the novel coronavirus pandemic gets worse across the US.
  • The good news is that Amazon has a ton of Purell sanitizer in stock right now, ranging from 6-packs of 2-ounce Purell bottles for $26.99 to 12-packs and 15-packs that cut the price per bottle even lower.
  • On top of that, Purell wipes are in stock and ready to ship as well, which is even rarer.
  • Prices are inflated because there is so much demand, but there are also other trusted brands in stock if you want hand sanitizer with the same formulation and better values, including both SupplyAID hand sanitizer and Wish hand sanitizer.

All you need to do is look at what’s going on in Florida, California, Texas, Arizona and several other states across the US to know that things are going to get much worse before they finally begin to get better. People with lockdown fatigue are letting their guard down and other people are just plain stupid so they refuse to wear face masks, so now coronavirus cases are skyrocketing. People, it’s really not that tough to grasp and you have no choice but to accept it: COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere and it’s just as dangerous as ever. You absolutely, positively, without question must take precautions every single time you leave your home.

Glance at the CDC’s coronavirus page and you’ll see exactly what you need to do. There’s no mistaking the measures that everyone should be taking in order to protect themselves and their families from the novel coronavirus. 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 your neighborhood. Common 3-ply masks like Amazon’s best-selling Jointown face masks are perfect for most situations, and they’re only $0.50 each. You don’t need a medical-grade N95 respirator since you’ll also be practicing social distancing and staying at least 10 feet away from people. You can also pick up some popular MagiCare KN95 face masks with a big discount to use in higher-risk situations like riding on public transportation, going inside small stores, or visiting a doctor’s office.

In addition to face masks, however, there’s something else you need that’s just as important: hand sanitizer. Individual bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon, which is quite rare these days. 6-packs of 2oz bottles of Purell are also available for $26.99, which is the best per-ounce value you’re going to find. Even more surprisingly, you can actually buy Purell sanitizing wipes right now on Amazon. It should be noted that prices are quite inflated right now because demand is so high —especially on the wipes — so these are only for people with a very urgent need.

There are some more options for Purell hand sanitizer that let you buy in bulk, and they all ship for free. 12-packs of Purell hand sanitizing gel are currently in stock and 15-packs of Purell get you an even better deal. You can also pick up 3-packs of 12-ounce Purell bottles with a per-ounce price that’s actually a great bargain in this day and age.

You should also note that there are now several other options for high-quality hand sanitizer that are in stock at Amazon, and they offer a much better value. 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 SupplyAID 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Spray, which is available right now for just $16.14 per 2-pack of 8-ounce bottles.

First, you can get a fishbowl full of 36 2-ounce bottles of Wish hand sanitizer for $62.30. The novel coronavirus isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so you might as well stock up now.

It’s also from a trusted brand that’s sold in stores like Costco, 7-Eleven, CVS, and Whole Foods, so you know you don’t have to worry about whether or not it’s safe and effective.
