We keep one of those spray bottles filled with a mild bleach solution which we use rather than wipes. Particularly good if you have a parcel, or even letters delivered, simply spray them and leave for 20 minutes before opening. You should also be doing all the shopping as you take it out of the bag and before putting it away. We've also had one in the car for the past three weeks. If you keep it in a plastic bag along with a cloth you can spray your hands and then use the cloth to work it around your hands, which will also dry away any excess. Far more effective than wipes and costs nothing.

...because they ask you to remove them after filling up and before paying. The touchpad would be the point of contact and, potentially, the source of virus contamination.

Just take a third glove and slap it on for the touchoad bit 👍

But ultimately, it doesn't matter, just wash hands thoroughly and don't touch your face or anyone else's... All good.

I had no idea about this (never thought of it, but then swimming pools and so on, right?!). Gonna make up a bottle today, top stuff mate. Thanks 👍😊

What sort of solution strength are you using RH? I need to be fairly careful with stuff like this as it doesn't take much to make my skin fall apart with psoriasis!

Around about 10ml per litre is the recommended strength for wiping down surfaces so that's what we are using, but check the bottle as it comes in different strengths. Some people are more sensitive to bleach than others. The suggestion is that as long as it's strong enough to leave your hands smelling slightly of bleach afterwards that should be enough. The secret is not to dry them straight away with a towel as the bleach needs time to react, which is why we use a small kitchen cloth that is already saturated with the solution just to wipe off the excess, and they then air dry in a few seconds.
