Soap V Covid 19- How soap kills viruses

The science of soap – here’s how it kills the Coronavirus... The Guardian posted a story this week about how Alcohol-based disinfectants are effective, but soap is a highly efficient way of killing the virus when it’s on your skin. So why does soap work so well on the Sars-CoV-2, the Coronavirus and indeed most viruses? The short story: because the virus is a self-assembled nanoparticle in which the weakest link is the lipid (fatty) bilayer. Soap dissolves the fat membrane and the virus falls apart like a house of cards and dies – or rather, we should say it becomes inactive as viruses aren’t really alive.
