    I'm guessing they pulled it due to panic buying

    The American CDC has a list of products which kill coronavirus, but unfortunately none of them is available here. Singaporean government had a list too, which included essential Waitrose bleach and Dettol surface cleaning wipes. British government hasn't done this.

    What part of "soap, bleach, and over 60% alcohol based sanitizers" needed to be more specific? Do you really need a list of "approved brands" of soap, and government instruction to use it?

    Which brand does "you know who" recommend? :)
    "Life is much/far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it." Oscar Wilde, in "Vera; or, The Nihilists” (much), then "Lady Windermere's Fan" (far).

    Bleach is for loos and floors and isn't food safe. 

    Not all disinfectants will kill viruses and aren't food safe either. In USA, the CDC lists the active ingredients of  branded disinfectants. which kill viruses. People can look for cheaper versions with same active ingredient. 

    Some healthcare professionals in USA  are advising people to rinse veg and scrub and/or peel if poss but not to use soap, which isn't food safe either. Modern soaps have a whole long list of chemical ingredients. Soap and bleach react to cause a toxic stink. Soap also reacts with vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and Epsom salts. 

    I use high alcohol sanitiser on everything coming into the house, including shoes. I'm then using catering surface sanitiser which is food safe. Using soap, just for hands.
