NEW YORK – With COVID-19 cases surging, and people taking extra precaution to disinfect, Clorox Wipes are still in high demand and could stay that way in to the new year.
Americans have scoured stores and the internet for the popular disinfecting wipes that protect against viruses, only to come away empty-handed.
In an interview last week, Clorox Chief Operating Officer Eric Reynolds said the wipes shortage could last until mid-2021.
Reynolds said the company is producing more wipes than ever, but the demand is staying incredibly high.
It’s the third time since the pandemic began that Clorox has pushed back the time frame for easing the nationwide shortage.
Reynolds said the company plans to up production by February.
