    cost-effective but an unacceptable wait - we'll have more than enough by the first week of May

      Devils Advocate; How do you know? I bet there were people saying in March that we'd have enough in the first week or April.

        Sure, the general public may have! Work in an associated industry that sells it and a good friend of mine works for a rather large business that distributes the raw material. Both businesses are expecting market saturation shortly, I would say they have the most to gain/lose and would be rather credible given the circumstances. But, this is a crazy time - anything can happen! haha

    I suggest that the actual release date is likely to be later than 29 Jun. I ordered the alcohol free version from these guys on 17 March for an advertised expected release date of 1 April but they have not yet shipped the product.

    never thought I would see the day when we Pre-Ordered hand sanitiser

    Thanks Ordered - Suggest getting an order in anyone - this virus is likely to be with us for some time to come.

      given every man and his dog seems to have gone into manufacturing sanitiser given how easy it is to make, I suspect by June their will be a pretty large oversupply. If not I will just make more at home.

    A note of caution: I placed an order back in early March with these guys and the delivery timeframes have been pushed back time and time again. First it was 2 weeks, then it was another 2. Then it was before Easter, and now it's after Easter. I know their website says 29th June, but I'll be pretty wary of that considering their track record so far.

    To those interested, the alcohol free is Benzalkonium Chloride which on current best evidence is less effective than alcohols against coronaviruses, so use at your own risk.

    Alcohol or Alcohol-Free

    So in other words, effective against viruses V Ineffective.

      Soap is alcohol free and it's better than hand sanitiser. I don't know what people's obsession with this stuff is. It's only useful if you don't have access to soap and water, all other times, it's a worse choice than soap.

      • +2 votes

        yes, but soap is not something you can easily use when you have to go out. I use santiser before I get back into my car when I have to go out shopping or if I have been touching stuff that many others may have touched, something I can't easily do with soap.

    This like a fund me thing? get enough orders / demands and then we will change our manufacturing to cater for this product?

  • +1 vote

    Unacceptable wait period, so for that reason…I'm out!

  • +12 votes

    Pre-orders are not bargains or deals. What's to say that you even get the product (especially this one that's about 2.5 months away from 'expected delivery')

    Whilst I know that some people need these, I think this type of post should go into the forum

    Why me thinks this is another RoboGuy Vac deal in the making!

    I did an order on the Mar 6,2020. eta 1 April, then mid April, then late April now looks like "31st Jul 2020" (got 2L bottle on order as well for my work)
    500mls was $6.19 when I ordered, so not complaining about price, but I wouldn't trust the date of when it will be back in stock!

    No deal - too many wait delays - fail

    If anyone is interested I have an amazing deal for 2020 Calendars. Expected delivery date 20 Aug 2020

    66% alcohol they say 70% is what you should use.

    • +2 votes

      Incorrect.

      •  

        My understanding based on a study specifically done for corona it is not incorrect. Happy to be corrected if you can find a credible source - cause I have some 64% I thought would not be as useful.

    • +1 vote

      70% is a good safe number with some room for poor measuring, as low as 60% is fine as stated by the CDC. at home I go for 70%

      •  

        Also alcohol will evaporate faster than water so it'll be effective for longer if you have a higher %, though that might not be such an issue now that people are using it by the bucketload.

        •  

          actually too high a percentage of alcohol can be detrimental as it evaporates too fast on the hands, this is why you mix it with gels and water.

  •  

    Given the huge lead time and reported delays with existing orders, it's a downvote from me.

  •  

    This feels more like an expression of interest than a preorder.

    •  

      It's more like a Kickstarter campaign - give us finding and we might give you…

    Ordered some Northfork anti-bacterials and pumps off Amazon for work a month ago.

    *All of the orange fragranced stuff turned colourless within a week of starting using it - not sure of the impact on it's anti-bac capabilities
    *3 x 5l containers were all shipped with 1 x 5l container
    *10 x pumps only included 1 x pump
    *Didn't order this gel sanitiser since it was out of stock, but did research it elsewhere and found multiple reviews complaining of the quality and inconsistent texture

    Submitted reviews for each, but Amazon have not published a single one, no doubt allowing other buyers to be duped by quality and quantity. Aqium, this stuff is not…

    Also, not delivered until July? Pass.
