Hand Sanitizer Prices Skyrocket Amid Coronavirus, Our Cheap DIY Suggestions to Avoid Getting Scammed
It’s always fascinating when global pandemics produce mass hysteria. Whether it was the Cold War and threats of nuclear bombs, Y2K, the Swine Flu or just the mere existence of the year 2012, it seems like the world is always on the brink of some sort of disaster. Make no mistake: coronavirus is a big issue. People have died and we would never make light of that. But we would make light of how people respond to these so-called “natural disasters.” Some people build bomb shelters. Others throw their computers away. Others, still, put somebody in charge of a medical crisis even though said person doesn’t actually have any medical or scientific expertise. But our favorite types of people are the ones with enough forethought and fortitude to take advantage of the situation.
Such is the case the third-party sellers on Amazon, who are selling hand sanitizer for as much as $100 a bottle. While Purell is flying off the shelves at your local mom-and-pop shops, as well as the bigger stores like Walmart (ironic because most people who frequent Walmart probably didn’t even know hand sanitizer existed until this month), Amazon hosts people who are trying to sell the stuff like it’s liquid gold. Well, if you don’t feel like spending an arm and a leg to keep your hands clean, you’ve come to the right place. Health officials have offered a list of helpful tips to avoid imminent death-by-coronavirus (hint: wash your hands), but if those seem too hard to manage, feel free to check out our list of cheap, DIY suggestions to avoid getting scammed while also remaining in top health. Thank us all you want; just don’t breathe on us, please and thank you.
