Soap doesn't kill it, it just washes it off your hands


Essentially, it does kill it because it removes the outer lipid layer of the virus, removing it's protective layer. This is my understanding.

Plenty of them in my local store - Gillingham Business Park.
The manufacturer states "Independently tested and proven to kill Coronaviruses" but what we really want to know is if it has been tested and proven to be effective against Covid-19.

No explicit mention of this on the actual product or the product website.

Based on the fact that a large multinational firm like Reckitt Benckiser, who manufacture Dettol have stated that they haven't tested any of their products against Covid-19 as the virus hasn't been made available to commercial organisations for testing, I would suggest that the same applies to this product as well.

However, this product as with some Dettol products, is probably effective against Covid-19, based on the fact they have been tested on other similar coranviruses.

I thought soap killed coronavirus? Therefore, this could potentially just be soap...

If you want something to kill viruses on hard surfaces make spray bottle of diluted bleach, just be careful of clothes! Ideally wipe away when finished with clean water, though to be honest I don't bother. See online for dilution rate.
Ps. It's a very high dilution rate, a weak mixture.

That depends on a couple of factors 1. there is no surface dirt or contamination, and 2. quite a long contact time, perhaps as long as ten minutes!

I have been using this very method for some weeks, but not under the belief that it works instantly!

Bleach mixtures also degrade quickly,especially in sunlight :-(

Better than nothing though, add a little washing up liquid to the mixture to increase it's cleaning properties, and also break down the virus.

Well, this news article claims "Mirius has a range of products that can kill and guard against Covd-19, many of which have been subjected to independent laboratory testing, according to its website"...... I would be cautious and take this claim with a pinch of salt.
Any cleaner with bleach should work very well, as it's nasty stuff that will cause the virus a lot of damage including its shell (the Corona bit) and the RNA inside.

Here’s another money saving tip: Milton’s “sterilising fluid” is nothing other than thin bleach marketed differently and sold at a huge mark up to regular thin bleach

I got this in a Lidl today, it was £1.69 - only 10p cheaper than Aldi, but the exact same product.
ITS RUBBISH
