As the coronavirus outbreak continues, basic items like hand sanitizer gels are in high demand.
In some cases, you can’t even find a bottle at the store, but there is an alternative.
With some stores selling out of hand sanitizer, people are trying to order online.
But the demand has fueled a big jump in prices.
Wednesday on Amazon, a 2-pack of Purell hand sanitizer, 10 ounces, was nearly $80. But before you go spending some big bucks, you can actually make your own. Pharmacist Mark Thompson said making your own is just as effective as using store-bought.
