Coronavirus Fears Cause Product Shortages, Here’s Some Essentials In Stock on Amazon

I have decided to create this post as a social awareness for others that are in the same boat right now, even though this post is not “EDM-Related.” With worries of the coronavirus (COVID-19) sweeping the nation, many household essentials like hand sanitizer, toilet paper, soap, and more are selling out quickly in stores. Currently, there are slim pickings at stores and even on Amazon. I've personally been scouring Amazon to round up some of the most essential household products for the coronavirus outbreak. Most importantly though, please don't hoard and buy more products than you need for this time period.

Toilet Paper

Toilet paper surprisingly is one of the most hoarded products right now in the market. While I personally don't understand why someone would need 20 packs of 18-roll toilet paper, it's unfortunate for many of us that only have one roll left in our house. Here are some other options for toilet paper that you can buy on Amazon today.

Bleach

While Lysol and other disinfectants are the preferred methods to wipe down surfaces, bleach also does the Job. According to the CDC, they recommend diluting bleach solution (1/3 cup bleach per 1 gallon of water) for virus disinfection. Wear gloves while using bleach and never mix it with anything except for water. Because bleach is harsh for metal and countertops, you should rinse surfaces with water after disinfecting to prevent discoloration or damage.
