It's starting to be out there. Saw some locally. I got some of this $8 for a 2 pack of 34oz. Keep refreshing and check back, it keeps going in and out of stock. https://www.walmart.com/ip/2-pack-Equate-Hand-Sanitizer-with-Aloe-34-Oz/308987778 Here's one for $50 for twelve 12 oz bottles that doesn't smell. https://slickdeals.net/f/14033222-144oz-liquid-hand-sanitizer-12x12oz-bottles-50-delivered Also check your local distillery, some have decent prices but others tend to be up there in price. At first they were selling out every time they made a batch but now it seems like they're no longer selling out. https://www.distilledspirits.org/di...id-19/distilleries-making-hand-sanitizer

NYS prisons made thousands of gallons and the local towns give it away (BYOB). Wife hates the smell and says it hurts her skin, but its fine for me. BJs has some hand sanitizer last time I was there. Now its meat & chicken where the shortage is.

I just mixed some home made using witch hazel, rubbing alcohol and a dab of hand cream and water and put a few oz. in an old eyewash bottle. I carry it with me in the car if there is no sanitizer at the exit of the supermarket or at the gas station. Moot point though, Colliodal Aerosol is the method of transmission. I want to use my large reusable canvas grocery bags! These plastic junk grocery bags are landfill trash and useless.

Ugh. No thanks. My wife has some of those reusable grocery bags and I hate them. They smell and I'm sure are not sanitary. I've been calling the one she uses for her lunch, "Typhoid Baggy" for over a year. Though, I see you have canvas ones. Those would probably be better if they are laundered regularly.

Been leaving my Aldi bags in the car and just bagging from the car to the bags in my trunk. Just ask them to put your stuff back in a cart, or if you are self-checkout, just put it in the cart and bag at your car.

Not having any problem getting hand sanitizer from my local HEB store. Well stocked. Good old Walmart had 2 oz bottles of off brand for 2.48 and nothing else stocked. HEB had 8 oz bottles of GermX for 1.78.

My employer gets their uniforms, restroom supplies and such from a company called Unifirst. They brought hand sanitizer for the first time this week. It was made by Lucas Oil Company and came in clear Lucas Oil bottles.

Why would they be dirty? I'm not throwing 5 lbs of ham hocks in there with no butcher packaging ! A good bit of regular bacteria and viral exposure is good for you ! I am going to REQUIRE you to stop using these moronic plastic grocery bags - so get ready for an attitude change!

Thank for the Idea!. I do self check out. Cant wait to have then chase me out the door! I'll open carry my 1911 on shopping day, maybe they will leave me be. Aldi is a little too much of a "communist block" experience for me, though I've seen some interesting people in there smile

That's because everything is bigger in Texas. I miss this state...HEB, Kroger, Randall's.

I will never forget the HEB caravan rolling though here after Harvey. Refer trucks full of perishables, box trucks, huge mobile kitchens, big CAT gens … All of it 1st class … so much stuff that 4 state trooper units escorted them …

It's the Sam's Club experience. Nothing is bagged there. At this point, most places just want you out the door so you don't cough on them and/or they can get the next person in, if they are controlling the number of people in the store.

Sorry, I've already got my own religion. Not interested in participating in someone else's. Besides, when I go shopping, I usually to a double cart run. I'm not interested in showing up with 50 bags.

Yeah pretty much, immunology and microbiology aren't the [censored] cousins of alchemy and astrology, they are science. And as the quote goes; "The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it." ― Neil deGrasse Tyson
