Thanks to the coronavirus epidemic, next to toilet paper and hand sanitizer, cleansing disinfectant wipes are basically sold out in stores. But, before you start stressing out, take a breath. It’s okay — we got you! There are plenty of ways to make wipes DIY-style!

But do wipes really kill the virus? This news clip helps break it down.


The coronavirus is not a game.

According to CNN, as of March 19, the coronavirus is on a world pandemic level with more than 200,000 people infected and the virus killing more than 8,700 people, including 150 in the U.S. It also has shut down or limited travel across the world; closed schools, canceled the NBA season, and countless festivals, concerts, and conferences; and forced employers to implement telework policies.

It’s important to continue to practice social distancing, keep your hands clean, and sanitize your space. And, as the expert advised, when all else fails, good, old-fashioned soap and water can help with disinfecting your home.
