Soap kills viruses – yup that’s right!
Plain old ordinary soap actually works better than disinfectants for killing viruses because ordinary soap destroys the viruses structure.
Soap is the best thing to use in the fight against viruses but when it is not available use alcohol wipes.
The reason soap is better is because it dissolves the fat membrane and the virus just simply falls apart and becomes inactive. That is simply put because I’m not a scientist and don’t want to bore you with science and chemistry. If you want to know more about that you can follow this link Deadly Viruses are no match for soap
The thing with viruses is that they can be active for hours, and even days outside the body living on surfaces using Lysol wipes and other disinfectants can help in getting rid of them, but soap is really the best thing to use if you can.
With the corona virus it is so important for us to keep our hands clean, health officials are telling us there is no cure for this virus, so the only thing we can do is try to stop the spread.
When you sneeze or cough tiny little droplets can fly as far as 10 meters away, the droplets carrying in the corona virus are said to travel at least two meters.
When these droplets land on surfaces they dry out and remain active on the surface for long periods of time depending on what the surface type is. Studies show varying results from hours to days.
When you touch a surface where this virus has landed and is still active it will stick to your skin and then if you touch your face the likelihood is you will become infected. Just think about how many times a day you touch your face, probably without even thinking. Rub your eye, brush your hair aside you get the picture.
Here is a great box of soap I found on Amazon – It sells for $19.99 and is rated a best seller. This box comes with six handmade soap that are scented with essential oils, an excellent hand washing soap if you don’t want to make your own.
Washing your hands with soapy water is the best way to get this virus off your hands, the soap contains a fat like substance which is similar to the lipids in the virus membrane. The soap loosens the virus from the skin and basically destroys it.
The Alcohol based products work when soap is not available, but with those you have to literally soak your hands to be sure to get rid of viruses so you are using quite a bit of product to do that, whereas with soap you use much less.
To wash your hands be sure to wash them for 20 seconds. Both sides, in between the fingers, the thumb and tips of finger and nails. Be thorough and stay safe.
If you don’t have soap to wash your hands. Hand sanitizer is the next best thing.

Don’t forget your face masks when out and about. Stay safe
