In this short video, we’re going to talk about soap vs. alcohol, which is better as an antiviral?

Alcohol (60%):

Alcohol can help inactivate many different microbes, including viruses. But, I believe you should really only use alcohol gel if you don’t have soap available because soap is more effective.

Soap:

A virus has a fat layer as its envelope. Soap is a detergent. It’s half fat and half alkaline salt. Soap is an interesting combination of fat-soluble and water-soluble. It can break down the fat layer of the virus. Not only can it destroy the virus, but it can also separate it from your hands. Alcohol can’t release the virus from your hands.
