Ever since the start of the pandemic, Purell has been selling out everywhere. Demand is just as great as ever — but suddenly the supply is up as well. Purell is the cheapest it's been since before the pandemic began, and the sale prices apply to tons of shapes and sizes.

As you well know, the CDC recommends frequent hand-washing for minimizing the risk of catching COVID. When you can’t get to soap and water, the CDC says to use hand sanitizer that contains up to 60 percent alcohol, like Purell. Purell also meets the CDC guidelines for killing 99.99 percent of common germs and bacteria.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

So, go forth and sanitize.
