Soap up

Chiva Som is the leader when it comes to health resorts around the world. Now, it is giving some useful information about soap, which is useful when it comes to eradicating viruses. Most viruses look like a spiky ball with strands of protein inside — the outer membrane of this spiky ball is made up of fats while the proteins contain genetic material. When you wash your hands with soap and water, you surround any microorganisms on your skin with molecules. The fat loving parts of these molecules float around in an attempt to evade water and in the process, stick themselves into the fat membranes of microbes and viruses. While this is happening, the water loving parts repel the fatty membranes of the microbes and the resulting push and pulling forces literally tear the microbes apart. Now you know!
