Still wondering where to find hand sanitizer? As the novel coronavirus pandemic persists, hand sanitizer is still in high demand. Online retailers typically sell out a few days (if not a few hours) after stock goes live. And while good old soap and water is still the best bet for banishing germs, when you do have to go out for groceries, hand sanitizer is most convenient.

As retailers work overtime to make sure their shelves are stocked with the essentials that will help keep us safe right now, we've been seeing hand sanitizer more readily available in stores and at a few select online retailers, including lots of places you wouldn't typically go to find it. 

Here's where and how to get hand sanitizer in-stock now. We're starting with online, and then moving to brick-and-mortar stores, below.
