Penn State study: Mouthwashes, oral rinses could lessen COVID-19 transmission

A new Penn State College of Medicine study has found that certain mouthwashes and oral antiseptics could inactivate human coronaviruses.

Penn State study says mouthwash can kill coronavirus — in lab dishes. Human trials are next.

Simple solutions to complicated problems have huge appeal, so it’s no wonder that squelching the coronavirus with mouthwash is being studied. Penn State College of Medicine is the latest to show that mouthwashes, nasal rinses, and even very diluted baby shampoo can kill coronaviruses by rupturing the microbes' fatty shells.

Penn State study finds mouthwashes, oral rinses may ‘inactivate’ coronavirus

According to a recent Penn State College of Medicine research study, the human coronavirus may be “inactivated” by specific oral rinses and antiseptics.

Mouthwashes, oral rinses may inactivate human coronaviruses

Certain oral antiseptics and mouthwashes may have the ability to inactivate human coronaviruses, according to a Penn State College of Medicine research study.

Oral Antiseptics and Mouthwashes May Reduce Spread of Coronavirus: Study

In a fight against the novel coronavirus, scientists have found that certain oral antiseptics and mouthwashes may have the ability to inactivate human coronaviruses.

Researcher explores disinfectant strength, contact time against viruses

Cleaning products, alcohol-based sanitizers and other common chemicals are all being used on surfaces to try to kill the virus that causes COVID-19, but knowing how much to use and how long to use it for is unknown, according to Craig Meyers, distinguished professor of microbiology and immunology and obstetrics and gynecology, College of Medicine, Penn State, who is looking at testing these chemicals to find out.
