The one item that I overlooked, and wish I had more of is Clorox wipes. I have a few, but not definitely not enough. I haven't been able to find wipes, disinfectant, hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol in any stores or online sites.

I have a couple bottles of rubbing alcohol that I bought early on for cleaning my thermometer if I have to use it. I picked up some essential oil to give it a nice scent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I found a DIY recipe for disinfectant as follows:
*1 1/2 cups Hydrogen Peroxide
*1/2 cup Rubbing Alcohol (60% or more) or a pure grain alcohol like Everclear (120 proof or higher)
*10–15 drops of Lemon, Tea Tree, Thieves, or Citrus Fresh essential oils

What are other folks using?
Any recommendations?

tI am using bleach for cleaning counter tops here and the house, and everclear in refilled hand sanitizer bottles.

A dozen 2 ounce pump spray bottles are on the way that I plan on filling with Everclear. This will be for keeping in the car... etc. The other day I went to the grocery store, and before I handled the buggy I sprayed the handle down with Everclear.

Bleach or vinegar should not be used on stone countertops. Alcohol is good. I was going to spray my cart down with rubbing alcohol but store is washing carts and i was directed to a fresh one early morning.
I'm not sure everclear is even legal in washington anymore, it used to be priced like premium liquor.
I tried wiping down phones and touchscreens but to avoid damage i put away and try to only handle after washing hands.

Just wash your hands and buy a a double barrel shotgun. Masks, PPE, and everything else are not needed. <= according to the international and domestic geniuses

I've seen wet wipes made from a roll of blue shop towels cut in half. the inner cardboard tube pried out. Then soaked in the appropriate solution. It is all kept in a plastic coffee can. with the cardboard tube pried out, sheets can be pulled out through the center.

Also thee are some HVAC coil cleaners that work as a disinfectant. They are around 15 dollars a gallon and then get mixed with water to a proper dilution. I bough a couple gallns and in the paperwork it said it was suitable for hospital use.
