BLEACH

Good day,

Will the HIV virus die instantly after coming into contact with a bleach like JIK or an antiseptic liquid like DETTOL? What if it was diluted with water?

Thanks

Hi Marlise!

Yes, the virus will be killed even if the bleach or disinfectant is diluted in water.

Stay well!

Again what i have read from expert sites, bleach kills the virus pretty dam quickly, diluted water only dilutes virus but doesnt kill it, hot water kills the virus also. Again this is also only what i have read, i suggest the cdc live chat with an expert in you are concerned.
