Been trying to figure this out on my own, now turning to the experts. Thanks in advance for your insight.
Disinfecting sprays are virtually impossible to purchase; soap and water does the trick for killing coronavirus; but taking a soapy rag to doorknobs is time consuming and messy. QUESTION 1: Does a "multipurpose cleaning spray" count as "soap". Do they contain the necessary components to break down the virus?
Method multipurpose spray Chemical Compound: D-Glucopyranose Oligomers Decyl Octyl Glycosides Dirt Types: Grease Grime.
JR Watkins cleaner: Water/aqua/eau, propanediol, decyl glucoside, sodium citrate, SD alcohol 40-B, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, citric acid, sodium carbonate, fragrance/parfum, methylisothiazolinone.
Meyers Clean Day: Water, Decyl Glucoside, Polysorbate 20, Betula Alba (Birch) Bark Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Abies Alba (Fir) Leaf Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Citrate, Glycerin, Sodium Methyl 2-Sulfolaurate, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Sodium Sulfate, Peg-5 Cocoate, Methylisothiazolinone, Benzisothiazolinone.
QUESTION 2 - Are there particular compounds to look for that would indicate a multipurpose spray cleaner would function as well as (or like) "soap"?
QUESTION 3 - Would combining liquid soap and water in a spray bottle work for this purpose? Would it need to be rinsed? (The beauty of multipurpose cleaners is that they need no rinsing.)
