SOAP or SANITIZER which is the best protection against viruses?
Hand washing is important for the prevention of viral infections by washing the viruses off the hands, and down into the drain. Regular thorough hand washing and bathing are the best methods for preventing viral infection.
Hand Sanitizers are effective when you are not near water to wash your hands with soap. It is not recommended to use sanitizer when your hands are dirty or greasy and overuse can reduce the healthy bacteria on your skin.
Antibacterial soap is not necessarily more effective than plain soap in keeping people healthy according to the FDA.
Washing thoroughly with regular soap is effective in getting rid of bacteria and other germs from your skin and is the best long term method of fighting viruses.
