Locally sourced small batch essential oil hand sanitizers filtered through live hipster beards?

The lesson is not to sell on Amazon. You will either get your listings stolen by scammers and/or larger sellers, or you will get banned for reporting the theft by scammers or larger sellers.
/Yes, the very act of reporting a listing theft actually counts as a strike toward your removal. Even if you were right.

"It was shock and a little bit of panic, a little bit of excitement, and then panic again,"

"And then we got royally f*cked by Amazon, repeatedly.  Thank you sir, may I have another?"

I like how hand sanitizers were everywhere I looked a decade ago when there wasn't any pressing reason to have them, and now that we kinda do need 'em, preppers are stocking to fill bathtubs, and getting enough toilet paper to cover a year's dysentery. Temporary quantity limits would be nice for this kind of nonsense.

Lately I've seen the cleaning chemical company "method" all over the place. Hell, I even bought a case of the after-shower spray cleaner after I received a bottle of it as a gift and liked it.

It reminds me of RedBull, which also seemingly came out of nowhere and now owns its little niche.

I can't find 'method' products anywhere now. Luckily I bought that case a couple months ago.

That makes sense. Their massive presence couldn't have happened without a major backer.

Maybe it was pulled because it was snake oil?

are there any standards for selling hand sanitizer or could I sell ranch dressing as sanitizer?

The actual product claimes to be anti-bacterial but COVID is a virus.

Yet the product claims  "Kills 99.9% of germs in seconds"

The products contains "essential oils" without saying which and whether they have been shown effective.

Capitalism at its finest.  That and the dickweeds who bought truckloads of toilet paper and hand sanitizer and who are right now selling it for inflated prices in the places where one seasonally finds firewood, X-Mas trees, and fireworks.

I'm sure they consider themselves fine "businessmen"

I saw a meme that made me chuckle.  Something to the effect of, "Everyone keeps talking about organic/natural but COVID-19 comes and ya'll got back to Clorox real quick."

Hmm. I wonder how many of them have vendor permits....

//just a thought <wink>

Oh, and also huge flags for things that are not countries, and bizarrely oversized flannel blankets depicting wolves, right?

According to TFA it was mostly likely a result of a large corporation hijacking their listing.

You should add that to your profile page, know what I'm sayin'

Regular soap is more effective and less harmful to the skin than sanitizer. Either needs to stay on your bod for 30 seconds, that's a long time; set yer timer. Sanitizer also needs to be above 60% alcohol, that's why it's harder on the tissues.

/ Ethyl or Isopropyl works, so 120-proof liquor is an option
// you can stock up on either; why not something tasty
/// Don't drink isoprophyl; It's a more effective liver killer

I delivered a package today to a lady whose house smelled of Lysol/Clorox disinfectant spray. Even though I did not touch her door or any other part of her house handing her her package, she still sprayed the hell out of the front door area with the spray.

Most people should not be on the internet.
