As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to increase in the United States, more and more families are looking for ways to buy hand sanitizers, toilet paper and other household items if COVID-19 is officially declared A World Health Organization (WHO) global pandemic seriously interferes with their life or leads to complete quarantine.
One of the biggest problems right now? Most of these everyday products sell out at lightning speed. This is especially true for wipes that top the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of disinfectants that can help protect against COVID-19.
Of course, finding cleaning wipes is also a serious challenge. Whatever you do, don’t panic – you can still get your hands on enough for the whole family (and skip the huge crowds in stores now) when you shop from these online retailers. While we update this list daily, stocks sell out extremely quickly. We therefore recommend that you do not move them more than you need.

Where to buy cleaning wipes and spray
Cleaning wipes that actually disinfect surfaces are currently the most difficult to find, but you can still get them, especially from the following retailers:
Use of cleaning wipes
If you already have cleaning wipes in the house, you still want to be sure that you are using them properly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), disinfection is not immediate – it can actually take up to three to five minutes.
Although wipes are on the EPA’s list of disinfectants, they may not be enough to keep the surface to be cleaned – for example a worktop – wet for the recommended time to kill germs.
As a rule of thumb, you may want to set a timer to monitor surfaces and make sure they’re still damp. You may also want to make sure that you disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces every day, especially door handles, keyboards, faucet handles and more. You don’t want to forget your phone either – according to Apple, you can even use Clorox wipes or 70% isopropyl alcohol for Apple products.
Jonathan Chan, Senior Lab Testing Technician at Reviewed, recommends following best practices and recommends that you use only one wipe when using wipes, as studies have shown that this can reduce the risk of Recontamination.
