Just so everyone in this thread knows, any soapy mixture will kill the coronavirus responsible for COVID. You don't need expensive or wasteful sanitizing products.

The coronavirus is a fragile, enveloped virus where the outer covering of the virus is composed of a fatty membrane. Diluted dish soap, all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, hand soap, etc., are often far more effective at killing coronavirus than sanitizing/disinfecting products.

It was always the case.. they did the testing recently and find out that the product is effective against Covid-19.

Gone up in price but the 350g bottles are cheaper when comparing dollar per gram.

Availibility is good. Just have to place an order and wait for them to come in.

Kruger Products CEO Dino Bianco said demand for paper towels has soared as people stay at home and clean more frequently.
