Soap, any kind of soap, disintegrates coronavirus by pulverizing its outer lipid-protein envelope. It’s fast, and 20-30 seconds in contact with soapy water should do it.
My routine: rubbing with bar or soft soap and water for 20 seconds (2 happy birthday songs) and then leave the soapy water for another 20 seconds. Don't forget to use soapy water on your phone, your smartwatch or fitness wearable, and let it sit for 20-30 seconds. Remember, virus lives on surfaces: cardboard 24 hrs, stainless steel 48 hrs, and plastic 72 hrs. so rewash hands if you touch them or coat them down with soapy water for 30 seconds.
