Hand sanitizer has been difficult to find in Canada since January. I have seen it in stores only a few times. But now things are getting a bit better. London Drugs has the La Roche Posay version (which is new and made in Canada) for $6.99 a bottle with a limit of 2 per purchase.


As to face masks, I haven't seen any disposable face masks of any kind for sale at drug stores since January. I bought some dust masks early in February at Dollarama. I have made my own face masks and like the ones where I used a free pattern linked to Leah Day's youtube channel. I've sewn 8 masks out of new cotton pillowcases and hairband elastic and gave one to my mom and two to my husband and kept 4 of them and have 1 extra in case my daughter wants it.

Consider this stuff in stores was .99 cents about March 16th it lets you know how many people are getting weathly off this crisis and the amount of hoarders .

I was actually just thinking about this the other day--how you could just easily find the hand sanitizer when you needed it, and how you could find it in different forms.


I like using it in the small packets, like the wet wipes. I can put some in my purse and in the car for my husband to have there, too.


I prefer those as they don't seem to be as drying to my hands.


Anyway, I haven't been able to find anything like those now.


I'm just glad that there seems to be more liquid hand sanitizer choices out there now than there was a few weeks ago. Smiley Happy
