Paper Soap for On-the-go Handwashing
The importance of handwashing has never been in the forefront like it is in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, and more people are practicing handwashing than ever before! This is great news, but even the most fanatical hand-washer will occasionally find themselves without soap. Whether you’re camping or in an airplane bathroom, we’ve all had dirty hands and no soap to clean them.

Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Regular handwashing is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water.”
Handwashing with soap could prevent 30% of diarrhea-related illnesses and 20% of respiratory infections (like pneumonia and coronavirus). Specialty sanitizers are not required to achieve this benefit. Handwashing with regular soap – like our portable paper soap sheets – is extremely effective in preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses.
Coronavirus and Soap
A coronavirus cell is surrounded by a lipid, or fatty, membrane. We all know from washing dishes that soap does a great job of cutting grease, also a fat. Just like lathering soap cuts the fat on your dirty pan, lathering soap also disrupts the lipid membrane around the virus. Without the lipid membrane, the coronavirus is inactive and cannot bind to human cells. Any lathering soap and warm water will achieve this result, and coronaviruses are not the only microorganisms on your hands. Soap is also effective in preventing illnesses from influenza (“the flu”), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (MRSA or “a staph infection”), a bacterium found in feces call Clostridium difficile (C-diff), Salmonella, E. coli, norovirus that cause diarrhea, and respiratory infections like adenovirus and hand-foot-mouth disease… to name a few! Most bacteria and viruses that we encounter can be prevented from infecting us with soap and water.
