How Soap Kills Viruses
How and why plain old soap and water absolutely annihilate viruses - including the coronavirus.
The best way to prevent the spread of coronavirus is to wash your hands.
It has to do with how the soap molecules interact with the virus.
Soap is made up of two-sided molecules.
One side is attracted to water; the other side is attracted to fat.
And viruses are made up of material surrounded by a coating of proteins and fat.
When viruses interact with soap, that fat coating gets ripped out by the soap molecules.
Soap literally demolishes viruses.
Of course, it takes time for this effect to happen: 20 seconds, to be specific.
