Why Can't Soap Kill 100% of Germs?
While soap is certainly effective at killing many germs, it cannot kill 100% of them.
As the world continues to grapple with the Ebola outbreak, many people are turning to soap and other disinfectants in an effort to keep themselves and their families safe from the deadly virus. But while soap is certainly effective at killing many germs, it cannot kill 100% of them.
There are a few reasons why soap is not able to kill all germs. One of the main reasons is that some germs have developed a resistance to the chemicals found in soap. This means that even if you use soap and water to wash your hands, there is still a chance that some germs will survive.
Another reason why soap is not able to kill 100% of germs is that it is not always used correctly. For soap to be effective at killing germs, it must be used for at least 20 seconds and be thoroughly rinsed off. If you do not use soap for the recommended amount of time or if you do not rinse it off properly, there is a good chance that some germs will remain on your hands.
In addition to these reasons, there are also some germs that are simply too small to be killed by soap. For example, viruses such as Ebola are much smaller than the average bacterium, making them more difficult to kill with soap.
Overall, it is important to remember that while soap can be effective at killing many germs, it is not a 100% solution. This is why it is so important to take other precautions to prevent the spread of diseases such as Ebola, such as washing your hands regularly, avoiding close contact with infected individuals, and staying up to date on the latest information about the outbreak.
