  • Purell hand sanitizer has been flying off Amazon’s store shelves now that there are listings available to everyone instead of just hospitals.
  • Despite how popular Purell has been in recent weeks, prices are still inflated because demand is so high.
  • If you’re looking for high-quality hand sanitizers that are just as good or even better than Purell at prices that are far more reasonable, we have five great options for you right here including best-selling SupplyAID hand sanitizer gel and popular 80% alcohol hand sanitizer spray from Chemical Guys.

Purell hand sanitizer on Amazon has been restricted to hospitals and government agencies since the novel coronavirus pandemic first began sweeping across the United States. That’s still the case today for most Purell listings on Amazon, but some options for purchasing Purell are now available to everyone.

Among our readers, there are a few Purell listings that have been particularly popular so far this week. Examples include Purell tabletop stand kits that ship with 2 liters of Purell hand sanitizer for $75, 2-liter pump bottles of Purell, and a rare opportunity to get 24-packs of military-spec Purell bottles. Those are all fantastic options for anyone who absolutely has to have Purell brand sanitizer, and prices have actually come down slightly in recent weeks. That said, you’re still going to pay much more for Purell now than you would have before COVID-19 outbreaks began spreading across the US.

If you’re on the lookout for hand sanitizer that works just as well as Purell but you don’t want to spend quite as much as sellers are charging right now, we’ve got five great options for you. In fact, all five of these popular hand sanitizers are even stronger than Purell thanks to an alcohol content that exceeds the 70% you’ll find in Purell. The most popular option among the five is SupplyAID 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Gel, and Chemical Guys EightyAID is great if you’re looking for a spray instead of a gel. You’ll also find Clorox hand sanitizer on the list below — most people didn’t even know that Clorox makes hand sanitizer, and it’s actually 1% stronger than Purell.

Check out all five options below.
