  • There is plenty of Purell hand sanitizer in stock right now on Amazon for anyone in need, but most options will sell out soon and prices are still inflated because demand is so high.
  • There’s another option you might want to consider, but it’s also quite difficult to come by and sellouts are inevitable: Clorox hand sanitizer.
  • Many people are unaware that Clorox makes hand sanitizer gel, but it’s actually slightly stronger than Purell and it’s available right now on Amazon at a much more reasonable price.

There is so much Purell in stock right now at Amazon, but there are two big problems with it. First, Purell is still in such high demand that listings like the ones in stock right now inevitably sell out very quickly. And second, demand for genuine Purell is so high that prices are still quite inflated. Some options are more reasonable than others though, and you’ll actually get pricing that’s pretty good by today’s standards if you buy 12-packs of Purell or 24-packs of Purell. Definitely stay away from individual bottles of Purell right now because they’re about $10 each with shipping, which is insane.

The best deal is actually on large 33.8-ounce Purell hand sanitizer refills, which have a per-ounce price of less than $1 — that’s pretty much unheard of these days. Pick up a few while they’re in stock so you can refill all the pump bottles and squeeze bottles you have and save a ton of money. Also of note, Purell sanitizing wipes are in stock at a pretty decent price today at Amazon.

As we said, it’s not a bad idea to stock up on Purell while it’s available on Amazon, since it’s still next to impossible to find in stores. You should also pick up some best-selling 3-ply face masks and MagiCare KN95 face masks while you’re at it. They’re both on sale today at all-time low prices, and MagiCare masks are under $1 each for the first time ever!

On top of all that though, there’s one more option you should consider as you look to stock up on essentials that help prevent coronavirus infections.

Did you know that Clorox makes hand sanitizer? That’s right, the company best-known for making every type of bleach and spray cleaner you can imagine also cooks up hand sanitizer, and it’s obviously among the best sanitizer out there. In fact, at 71%, it even has a slightly higher alcohol content than Purell! It’s made right here in the USA and there are not one but two listings in stock right now for nice big 33.8-ounce bottles of Clorox hand sanitizer.

These bottles were designed for use in a touchless dispenser, but you can easily pop open the twist top and use these large bottles to refill any hand sanitizer bottles you already have. On top of that, you can check out the reviews to see that one handy buyer actually just screwed on a spray top to use Clorox hand sanitizer right out of the bottle. In either case, you’ll be getting some of the best hand sanitizer out there for much less than you’ll pay for Purell right now. We expect these to sell out quickly though, so get in on the action while you still have time.

We’ve included both listings below so you’ll hopefully be able to snag the second one when the first one sells out. Note that the price on the second listing is $9 higher than the first, but that’s still a great price and it ships much quicker since it’s Prime-eligible.
