Anyone find isopropyl alcohol 70% around lately? I've had luck finding Lysol wipes randomly. I don't want higher than 70% either.

Metro Inc sells ethyl alcohol not IPA, although both are fine.
I like credit unions and Honda Civics.

Already caught up for masks. Used to sell for $50 at the height of the Covid pandemic. Now the price is as low as $20 for box of 50.

Miniso is now on sale at $15/box of 50. Best price is from T&T Supermarket, $9.88 for box of 50 masks.

Noticed that too. Costco is selling masks for $17 now and some stores like Superstore and FreshCo have them for as low as $15. By the fall I expect masks to be around $10 a box everywhere.

Are they for medical use or just regular mask for dust/pollen. I seen mask at Wal wal for $25 for a box of 50 but they are for dust/pollen. People should be using at least Medical grade level 1.

Non-medical.
IIRC, retailers are not selling medical grade masks, as they are reserved for healthcare.

Price has dropped since, down to $15.99/50pc now.

Plenty of website offer medical grades people can buy. I would rather spend an extra $10 to $15 for a medical grade mask than the regular ones.

Are they on Health Canada and CDC approved list?
