Sanitizing Wipes at Costco Business Center
Posted by: graylocks
Date: October 03, 2020 05:36PM
I was in the neighborhood of the Costco Business Center so I popped in to return something I bought online and to gawk at the industrial cookware.

They had sanitizing wipes in stock. $12.99 for a 4 pack. (200 wipes) 75% ethanol alcohol. Brand is Art Naturals. limit is one per membership per day.

don't know if that's a deal or not but i picked some up anyway.

Not seeing a shortage of these except for the 'name brand'. Guess they're being
sold in bulk to hospitals, schools, etc. ?

ALDI's & DollarGeneral are $3 for a tub of 75.
Food Lion has pouch packs of 50 for $2.50.
DollarTree has tub of 30 for $1 but they are very thin (I keep one in car).

btw, here in the Mid-Atlantic it seems everybody is over-stocked with hand sanitizers!

Every time we're going to fly out of ATL in the afternoon we come into town early and go by the Costco Business Center. We love the place!

i've not seen santizing wipes at any Aldis or Walmarts here on the south side of atlanta. plenty of baby type wipes and sufficient quantities of sanitizer and liquid hand soap, though.

I only use them at the supermarket, and the store has them for customers. I'm not finding too much use for wipes outside of that.

TBH, this is the first time in my life i've purchased sanitizing wipes. i did want some for an 1800 mile road trip i took a few weeks ago but none were to be found. i don't really have a use for them at home but with winter coming and faint whispers of a second covid wave i figured it wouldn't hurt to pick some up, put one pack in my glove compartment and put the rest on a shelf somewhere.

True, I also use them for those nasty rest stop bathrooms. Almost forgot that one!

I've had no problem finding the 4 packs of 200ct Clorox Wipes at Sams Club regularly.

Art Naturals? If you're ok with generics, even HomeDepot by me (NY) has generic wipes. Hold out for the name brand stuff.

alcohol is alcohol in my book. i also tend to have a fair amount of faith in Costco quality control. i was HD the other day. lots of soap and bottles of sanitizer. no wipes.

I don't doubt that you checked HomeDepot the other day and you didn't see any wipes. Stock is sometimes hit or miss. But nowadays, you do have to dig a bit deeper to find "in demand" products. You mention that you live in ATL. I don't know ATL all that well, I've only been there twice in my life. I typed in ATL in the HD store locator and a few stores popped up with antibacterial disinfecting wipes of a more recognizable brand than "Art Naturals" as being in-stock. An HD in Cascade has HDX (HomeDepot house brand) wipes in stock. An HD in Buckhead has Clorox single and 3-pack wipes in stock. I'm only using these locations as examples.

yes, that’s the point - what’s in stock is hit or miss not readily available as i think you tend to claim where you live and extrapolate that that is the case everywhere. i have two HDs and a Lowes i frequent in addition to three aldis and four walmart’s. if i don’t come across something in that orbit it better be pretty damn important for me to drive all over metro atl. wipes don’t qualify. i came across a brand that Costco found suitable. works for me. YMMV.

A lot of people forget 'where you are isn't here'.

I was in the local Safeway yesterday, and all the shelves, three or four, in the cleaning supplies aisle, were bare.

Laundry soap, hand soap, bar soap were all present and accounted for, but no Clorox type wipes of any kind.

I don't have any idea what specifically lived on all that shelving except the wipes, but there must have been other stuff.

A provisions trip is in order. The Costco and its business center are in opposite directions, so I'll try one one day and the other, some other.

Hi everyone,

Something to remember. These are wipes with alcohol, which isn't the same active ingredient that is in Lysol, Clorox and similar wipes. That and Art Naturals doesn't say how much time is required for the wipes to effectively kill viruses and bacteria. That's an issue because all of these require time for them to do their job. You need to be aware of what that time is else you don't use the wipe properly, reducing its effectiveness.

Think of it this way. A quick wipe and with one of these (or other wipes) is going to do squat. In the case of something like a Clorox or Lysol wipe or a paper towel with Steramine mixture, you need to wet the surface and the surface must stay wet for a minimum amount of time for sanitizer or disinfectant to do its job. You're not talking seconds. You're talking a minute, 4 minutes, 7 minutes, etc. The amount of time depends on the product.

Robert

Good points, Robert. Many people seem to not know that or disregard that, I see that constantly at work.

The only wipes that I've seen here in Michigan are the ones with only benzalkonium chloride, which is not a reliable SARS-Cov-2 killer. Clorox and Lysol have that ingredient, but in addition, have alcohol as a listed ingredient.
