Odd title, but catching, don't you think?

I went to Walmart this morning early to shop and found both hand sanitizer and Fleischman's yeast. I had been checking every time I went to any grocery store or Walmart and neither was available until this morning.

So, now I can use the hand sanitizer if I want to rather than washing my hands and.....

.... I can now bake a loaf or several loaves of bread. So glad to find the yeast at last. It's now sitting in my freezer until I need it.

Looks like things are getting back to.... dare I say almost normal?

Same thing all the way up here at 53N in just the last few days.
Fleischmann's Dry Yeast and all kinds of wheat flour have suddenly reappeared.

Now, plain old yellow onions are gone. So is plain, salted soda crackers. Gone.

I saw the title and I wondered if yeast somehow boosted the cleansing power of the sanitizer!     The local stores here are still out of some things, but for the most part are keeping shelves stocked.

Shelf items have been reappearing in Bozeman, too.

Thanks to all the truckers who worked nonstop through the panic. Working to help others when you've been told the disease will definitely catch you and kill you...that takes courage and honor.

I feel the same about the first responders and medical people. Thank you.

And I though this was going to be about how to use hand sanitizer to kill athletes foot...

If you squirt the hand sanitizer in your ears, you are no longer able
to blow snot-bubbles with your nose.

You guys can make fun of my post if you wish, that's okay, but I'm just so glad to see shelves filling up again and being able to purchase items that have been missing for several months.

Think I'll go sanitize my hands and make bread to day. Oops, can't do it today, but tomorrow.

Sherry, reports from the CDC indicate that this disease is probably less likely to be picked up by contact that it was once thought to be. That said: thorough handwashing for 20 seconds is still considered superior to the use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizers are good when you don't have access to good ol' soap and water, but those are still thought to be better.

I don't think that's what they said.  They simply said it wasn't the main mode of infection, with aerosol being the easiest way that it spreads.  But contact with contaminated surfaces is still a mode of transfer, and needs to be taken just as seriously as it was before..  This week, they're recommending that office employers eliminate all common-touch items like coffee pots, snack bars, etc.

Fair enough. But they HAVE recently released new guidance indicating droplet transmission is believed to be the primary vector, and include this:

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about how this virus spreads.

That's more open than it was previously. That said, I'm not suggesting that people shouldn't be careful with surfaces, and I apologize if anyone read it that way.

I take the hand sanitizer with me when I go out, leave it in the car and use it when I get back to the car. Since there's no running water and/or soap in the car, the hand sanitizer does the trick. I also have it handy when a couple of my friends come over to play cards: we all start out with clean hands so we don't worry about contamination because of touching the cards/dice or whatever. It would be silly to have them each wash their hands when they come in, although I could, but I don't.

Sherry, I've been seeing some reports of hand sanitizer bottles exploding in hot cars.  I've also read that it's a hoax, so I'm not sure what to believe.  But the DPS has stated that it's not a good idea to leave hand sanitizer in your car.  At the very least, the alcohol evaporates out of the mixture in the heat and it loses its potency, since alcohol is highly volatile (not to mention flammable).  And as it evaporates, it can pressurize the bottle, leading to leakage and/or rupture even if it doesn't ignite.  Long story short, they say it's best to put it in a smaller pump container that you can carry with you instead of leaving it in a hot car.  My sister-in-law has a little tiny hand sanitizer bottle that she keeps clipped to the outside of her purse, which seems like a really handy way to have it with her at all times.

What I take with me is a small bottle and I'm seldom gone for more than 30 to 45 minutes.  If it's going to be an extended shopping trip, I take wet wipes that have been saturated with diluted bleach, put them in a Zip lock bag and leave them in  my purse.  

As the weather gets hotter, I'll probably just put the small bottle in my purse and take it in with me rather than leaving it in the car.

I have a bottle of sanitizer (spray) in the glovebox along with a couple of masks at all times.

I thought about doing the same, but in order to fit the sanitizer in there I'd have to remove my jar of Grey Poupon.

I think there's a joke here about substituting the yeast with hand-sanitizer for virus prevention,but on second thought...
