Alcohol-based cleaner several times daily is effective during this coronavirus insanity. Of course, grabbing some from the limited supplies now at your local drugstore may involve fighting other shoppers in a death struggle surrounded by rolls of toilet paper.

Altho some medical experts may disagree, plain old bar and liquid soap can be just as effective, or better because you only need a fairly small amount of soapy water rubbed thoroughly over both hands. Using an alcohol gel may not reach all the skin on your hands effectively enough. However, if soap isn’t immediately available, it helps to use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
