I'm not seeing my favorite brand anywhere yet (Purell with Aloe) but hand sanitizer is easy to find where I live, and has been for some weeks.

We tend to buy in bulk for things we use a lot of, fortuitous timing meant that we had quite a bit of hand sanitizer and toilet paper before the current crisis. We haven't had to change grocery item purchases significantly.

Locally, including COSTCO, still no hand sanitizer or wipes. TP and Paper Towels are becoming somewhat more available. Perhaps not exactly the brand you prefer, but available.

Yep, right now we can't always be choosy!

Haven't seen hand sanitizer in any of the retail outlets, but businesses seem to be able to source it as part of their walk-in and walk-out protocols.

Doesn't matter to us, though. We always have substantial amounts on hand. I use it a lot, mostly as a waterless hand cleaner. Especially in winter. Great for taking off oil and grease, or an accidental splash of gas. Used right away, in generous amounts, then washed off with water or snow (really!), and there's no lingering gas smell on my hands.

Hmm! I guess I haven't been out much. Strolled through a few stores I haven't visited in a while, and found there's sanitizer available ... but at laughable prices.

I had to brave Costco today and they had 1 L bottles of the thin 80% alcohol stuff for $9.99, not a terrible price nowadays. But I have one bottle of the same stuff (although different brand) that I haven't opened yet and a gallon in UPS limbo awaiting delivery.

Hi,
Went to local dollar tree this morning
cashiers had hand sanitizer at checkout
maybe 40 bottles of 8floz

in the medicine section
about same amount of
70% isopropyl alcohol (never seen that before)
and maybe double the amount of 50% isopropyl alcohol


isopropyl bottles are easy to squeeze ... rough handling closed bottles will make them weep wink

no soap refills on the shelf ... clerks say trucks drops off stuff once a week, then each day whatever was stacked first gets loaded onto shelves

The Dollar Tree here seems to be well stocked with sanitizer as well. I've bought a few bottles, one to leave at work, one for the car and one for home.

It seems to go in waves.
