    Star sans kills bacteria, I don't think it's made for a virus but at the same time I don't know

    It's basically just phosphoric acid

    5 TBLS of Bleach to a gallon of water.
    Wipe down everything that you or others touch.
    I add a few drops of Dawn, but it's not necessary.
    be careful on colorfast things.
    Cheers,
    Brian

    It should, but again no hard proof one way or the other. The bleach idea is probably wiser.

    I'd stick with bleach. Or soap. Soap dissolves the virus's lipid layer and it basically falls apart.

    Yep plain old soap is what I've herd of too;).
    Also herd how they get in is touching your face eyes nose mouth the bacteria attach to your lungs. They can't move so only way they can end up In you is (Hand to face)
    But how often do we do this without even thinking.
    I can't keep my fingers out my nose at the best of times :p:D!

    I would think that the Mark 10 Dairy Cleaner/Sanitzer that I use would work. It's detergent soap and ammonium quad.
