In a statement on Feb 13, the beverage chain says it has given out 500 bottles of disinfectant so far since the initiative started on Feb 6.

Fret not if you haven't had the chance to buy hand sanitisers, Singaporean chemical manufacturer Adiwarna Industries is selling its house brand hand sanitisers and disinfectant sprays at a discount.

Each 500ml bottle of Jackie hand sanitisers will go for $19.95, and has more than 60 per cent ethyl alcohol. According to the United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, sanitisers with 60 to 95 per cent alcohol clean more effectively than those with lesser alcohol content.

If you're wondering about the price, other alcohol-based hand sanitisers on the market are retailing at $21.90 per 100ml

The hospital-grade disinfectant spray can be used on all surfaces and doubles up as an air freshener as well, as it eliminates odours and kills germs.

Where: Blk 9005 Tampines Street 93 #04-266, Singapore 528839
