Even though we’ve been living through a global pandemic for more than six months, disinfectant wipes, face masks, and hand sanitizers continue to fly off shelves. Major brands like Purell, Lysol, and GermX sell out as soon as they’re restocked, and disposable face masks and gloves are just as hard to find. Thankfully, we found an unexpected place where you can snag COVID-19 essentials without stepping outside.

Kroger, the country’s largest supermarket chain, is known for its incredible in-store grocery experience, but the retailer also has a robust online storefront. You can shop thousands of products on the site, including pantry items, beauty products, office supplies, kitchenware, and (most importantly) hard-to-find cleaning supplies and protective gear. 

Stock up on disposable face masks at just $2 per mask, or tuck this two-ounce hand sanitizer into your bag for just $4. Kroger also offers cloth masks, like this fun animal-print set with cheetah and zebra designs, which can be washed for repeated uses. Your little one starting school soon? You’ll find everything to make the school year a stress-free success, whether it’s in-person or online, including sanitizers, notebooks, lunchboxes, and snacks.

In addition to avoiding long lines and chaotic crowds, Kroger’s shipping service offers the benefit of smart savings automatically included in your shopping cart. Plus, you earn fuel points on your purchases, and orders over $35 ship for free.
