Important note:

Where’s all the sanitiser?

Currently, stocks of hand sanitiser are low at many retailers because of increased demand due to coronavirus. Be aware that many retailers may be out of stock or impose limits on how much you can buy. So shop around, but don’t pay over the odds!

The good news is the best way to protect yourself from infection is to regularly wash your hands with soap and water for a full 20 seconds and to make sure you dry them thoroughly. (Hint, this is roughly the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.)

But there are cases when you don’t have immediate access to soap and water, like when you’re on public transport or walking to and from work. In these cases, hand sanitiser is a great alternative – specifically an alcohol-based hand rub.

Here’s our guide on where you can buy hand sanitiser online and when you can use it.
