According to Page Six, the millionaires appeared on ShopHQ to sell their own bottles of hand sanitizer during the pandemic. The price being charged for a 6-ounce bottle is $28.95.
Fans were quick to criticize the extremely rich reality stars for selling expensive hand sanitizer instead of donating it to those in need. One person wrote, “Shame on you @DrDubrow and @HeatherDubrow for your tone-deaf sale of 6 ounces of sanitizer for $28.95 during a pandemic. Discusting! The only thing #botched about your lives are yourselves. How pitiful. @BravoTV @enews @eentertainment #shameonyou #quarantinecapitalists”
You and your husband are PRICE GOUGING. You are selling 6oz of hand sanitizer for $28.95. You and your hubby get to go home to $21,000,000.00 home, while you take advantage of people's fear. pic.twitter.com/xKqem0CWKi

Another said, “@HeatherDubrow why are you charging $28 for hand sanitizer that should be donated to hospitals for free? Is a portion of the sales of your very expensive $28 sanitizer going to relief efforts?”
“@HeatherDubrow So you & hubby sat back in your sterile abode that has the warmth of morgue, price gouged people w/ hand sanitizer, & had chutzpah to say “We gave PORTION of proceeds to groups in need”. You have enough $ to donate 100% of proceeds as Paul Newman,” wrote one upset follower.
One person wondered, “I agree. They are the worst. There is no reason but greed to charge this much. Breweries near me are closing down, making sanitizer, and giving it away.”
Heather spoke to Page Six that her family had already donated $35,000 to California’s Second Harvest Food Bank. She added, “We’ve already donated thousands … to people working on the front line of this pandemic. And we’re giving a portion of the proceeds of our sanitizer to food banks — there are kids who are not getting anything to eat — and to health-care professionals.”
Terry claims the sanitizer uses ingredients that are “impossible to find” and cost three times the normal cost due to the pandemic.
