Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

Hi

I am curious now that months have passed and I have ran out of wipes / sprays etc I have had to make my own.

Does anyone know where you can buy these things?

TIA

Re: Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

I was actually going to come on here to ask if Lysol has ceased production of the Lysol spray.
You can't get it anywhere. I mean it's been months. Are people still hoarding it? Where are they getting it?
I got a 3 pavk of Clorox wipes on Amazon a few months ago just by chance so I'm good there. But Lysol or Clorox disinfecting spray, nothing. Nowhere

I had good luck on boxed.com a while back. Target in store was fully stocked the one time I shopped there. I bought a gallon of bleach that can be diluted if I get desperate.

I think the spray and wipes are harder to get then the all purpose cleaner type product.

Re: Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

and following on from that seen as Purell is nowhere to be found I have been picking up hand sanitizer at CVS, Stop and Shop etc and some of them are SO bad - like my kids refuse to use them as they smell so bad. I have found some of them are so liquid they run all over the place.

Any recommendations for hand sanitizer that does not cost $100 per squirt and does not make you gag when you apply it?

TIA

I always have luck getting cleaning sprays and wipes at Target. I go as soon as they open. Twice I was able to get Lysol aerosol spray.

ETA: I have also been lucky with hand sanitizer at Target.

Ugh I know. I don't understand why some stink so badly when they are all pretty much thr same active ingredients...alcohol.
I got one in Stop n Shop once out of desperation and it actually feels slimey and sticky in addition to stinking. Chat Icon
I found a small bottle of Germ X in Target one day by chance and it smells fine just like Purell.

I’ve gotten hand sanitizers at Target and supermarkets. Clorox wipes I found yesterday at the Walmart by me (1 per customer), but they also had their house brand of wipes too. I was also able to get Wet Ones antibacterial hand wipes (always check the travel section for that). Back when this all started I was able to order a lot of supplies from Staples. I recently found napkins there too, which has been out of stock at every supermarket and Target.

I saw something last week that there is going to be a shortage of disinfectant wipes into 2021. I occasionally find the generic ones at Shop Rite or Target.

I see wipes and hand sanitizer everywhere. Target seems to have the most. Spray Lysol is hard to find. I actually got two cans today at CVS but it is their brand

I have actually lucked out finding wipes at ShopRite. I got the shoprite brand but whatever. I also see a hardware store in Hauppauge (I want to say American Hardware?) often advertising they have supplies.

I know there is no chance of Clorox wipes until 2021. They said that in a statement.

As far as hand sanitizer, I have been using this one and I love it: Hand Sanitizer
(Full disclosure is that I am a consultant for the company but I truly love it. It smells awesome and doesn't tear up your hands. My kids like it too. There are two scents. I'm just sharing the info. I'm not trying to sell anyone anything.Chat Icon )

Re: Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

In Target Sayville now. They have big bottles of Germ X which smells normal.
It's against the back wall with cleaning supplies not the normal hand soap/sanitizer are.

No Lysol spray and no wipes at all today

Re: Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

you have to stalk amazon daily though out the day and just try your luck in stores

I did read or hear on the news that I think Lysol wont be able to catch up for a while on the demand maybe in to next year!

Re: Disinfecting Wipes / Sprays etc

I get lucky with wipes and GermX hand sanitizer from amazon. I also grabbed 12 bottles of alcohol from amazon last week because I cannot find spray Lysol to save my life. So I bought a few mister bottles and pour straight alcohol in there. I spray the stuff I would normally use the Lysol spray on.

I’ve been able to find most cleaning supplies except for Fantastic. I used that to clean my kitchen and it is nowhere to be found near me.
