How Soap Kills The Coronavirus

Plain old soap and water absolutely annihilate coronavirus.

You’ve been told a thousand times: wash your hands to stop the spread of COVID-19. But why does this work so well? It has to do with the way the soap molecules are able to absolutely demolish viruses, like the coronavirus.

This is actually a great video and tutorial that demonstrates why 20 seconds of washing with soap are vital, and why no soap or ‘just 10 seconds’ does not work.

Another tip: Switch out those hand towels more frequently and run them on the hot wash cycle.
