The Sun Online (UK) reports on a new tissue that kilss 99.9% of cold and flu viruses by Kleenex. According to the Sun Online,
Makers Kleenex say that within 15 minutes of a sneeze it zaps nearly all the 15,000 germs held in a hanky — and so stops them spreading.
The three-ply tissue is impregnated with citric acid and the common chemical sodium lauryl sulphate.
These work together to destroy the “overcoat” of a virus which allows it to exist outside the body for 24 hours.
