I heard from a specialist on the radio that the virus needs cleaning like you would clean greasy dishes.

The virus is like a tiny particle of grease, therefore, use any thing that becomes soapy like soap, washing up liquid, detergent etc etc to wash your hands and get rid of the grease.

Yes, the main advice is to wash using soap.

Use the hand sanitiser when washing with soap isn't possible.

The other thing to do with the sanitizer is to leave it near the front door so you clean your hands immediately upon entrance.

The idea of doing this is to clean off any potential harm before it's spread onto door handles, light switches tape etc etc because that's how it will spread.

Maybe have some in the car and use it before driving away from the supermarket, since the baskets and trolleys will be infected with all sorts of germs too.

Once in the house, try not to use it for no reason as it will start to affect the skin.

According to this article the hand sanitiser featured in the YouTube video is possibly not the best, but it's better than nothing.

www.propublica.org/article/coronavirus-hand-sanitizers-cd...

1. Best practice is to wash with soap and water.

2. If soap and water is not available then an alcohol based hand sanitiser is ok.

3. If alcohol based hand sanitisers are not available then benzalkonium chloride based hand sanitisers (as in the video) are better than nothing.

Also, leave hand sanitiser on wet for a while for it to get to work. Don't dry it off straight away.
