Ethanol (ethyl alcohol) sanitizers

Recommended Posts

Does ethanol (ethyl alcohol) based sanitizers / disinfectants (like Purell) really have any effect on the Herpes Simplex Virus, even without rinsing or wiping?

External references would be great!

Very interesting. Some people here have had very good results with Purell.

I wonder, why

The FDA does not permit antiviral claims for products like Purell

I mean, it should be pretty easy to test whether Purell kills HSV virus or not?
