COVID-19 – In Search of Alternatives?

This is installment #6 of our "Stop the Spread" series.

As the pandemic trudges on, there's a constant ebb and flow of the supply chain reacting to high demand that depletes a certain type of product and then a surge of interest in possible alternatives.

Everyone wanted N95 masks and Purell® sanitizer, but we all know those aren't going to be available for quite some time. Now Clorox® disinfectant wipes and Lysol® spray are in high demand, but those too are hard to find. How can we continue working, or get back to work, when the products we need are impossible to find?

P&I has sourced a number of alternative options that can meet your needs now instead of waiting for product that may take months to come back into stock (References: USA Today / Wall Street Journal). While these products may not be the name brands you're used to, the right combinations can help you achieve many of the same goals.

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, inventory status is rapidly changing.
