Amazon Primeshipping, but prices are still inflated because there is so much demand.

- The strongest sanitizer on Amazon is called Forward Science 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Spray, and 6-packs are now available again with free Prime shipping — they’re also priced much more reasonably than Purell.
- Amazon’s best-selling face masks are still the most popular coronavirus purchase among our readers, but hand sanitizer is a close second.
Everyone has seen the CDC’s coronavirus page by now and if you’re even the least bit responsible, you’re following the agency’s guidelines to keep yourself and your family safe. Needless to say, there are certain things you need to pay attention to most. 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 50¢ 3-layer masks are more than good enough for most situations.Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Refreshing Gel, clear 1.0 Fl Oz List Price:$5.81 Price:$3.98 You Save:$1.83 (31%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
In addition to face masks, there’s something else you need that’s just as important: hand sanitizer. Individual bottles of Purell are actually in stock right now at Amazon, which is quite rare these days. But there are now several other options in stock at Amazon as well, and they all 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 Forward Science 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Spray, which is available right now for just $49.99 per 6-pack of spray bottles.

In addition to the Forward Science sanitizer, you’ll find 4-ounce bottles of Medex hand sanitizer in stock and 12-packs are $44.99 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 70% ethyl alcohol mix, so it also has a higher alcohol content than the CDC’s minimum recommendations.Price:$44.99 for 12 bottles Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
Finally, 8-ounce bottles of Natural Concepts Hand Sanitizer Gel are available to purchase in 6-packs for $25.99.
