    Hand Sanitizing Alcohol Wipes, 50 Wipes/pk $2.99 + Free Shipping at Staples!



  • We have several extremely high-risk family members from age 6 to 94, so we can’t take Covid 19 lightly. When things started going downhill back in April we started using disinfectant cleaners at home and disinfectant wipes when out, for wiping down a credit card after using it, etc… Thought we were being careful till we found out that most disinfectants have a much longer “contact time” than we realized (the amount of time a surface needs to stay wet in order to kill the virus). Most need at least a few minutes. According to the CDC website, even Lysol spray which is one of the few the EPA has recommended so far and is probably the holy grail of disinfectants, needs at least 2 minutes to be effective. But 70% rubbing alcohol needs only 30 seconds. These wipes are 75%, so they’ll be perfect for keeping in our car to use when we’re out.
    Thanks so much Mr. C.

    Huggies wipes soaked with rubbing alcohol works for me.

    Unless you can remove most of the existing water content and then add rubbing alcohol, that wouldn’t work.



  • Many reviews of these alcohol wipes (not just this brand) say that they are not wet enough. You may want to add more rubbing alcohol, especially over time.



  • There is also a pack of 80, for $3.99. Unfortunately, both are made in China.
