Experience A Better Ride

Demonstrating Zoran Sunglasses During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Every business is taking extra precautions in the is period of the Covid 19 virus and bike store are no different. In this busy environment some of your customers may be considering purchasing a pair of Zoran sunglasses but would like give them a test ride first. 

What is an effective way to sanitize Zoran sunglasses between demonstration rides? Believe it or not the most effective method to kill the virus is good old soap and water. We recommend Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. Soak or wipe the sunglasses with Dawn and water for 30 seconds. Wipe with a soft dry cloth and you are ready to go!

I live with a surgeon with an undergraduate degree in bio-chemistry. In this Covid era I can’t tell you how many times she has asked me if I have washed my hands with soap and water for 30 seconds. If I tell her I used hand sanitizer her response is the same every time. “Nothing is better than soap and water, go wash your hands”. She is so adamant about it I decided to look it up. As usual she is right.

Below are excerpts from an article titled The coronavirus is no match for plain, old soap — here’s the science behind it written for MarketWatch by Palli Thordarson who is a professor at the School of Chemistry at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. The article was published on April 8, 2020.  

Soap dissolves a virus’ structure

Soap contains fat-like substances known as amphiphiles, some structurally similar to the lipids in the virus membrane. The soap molecules “compete” with the lipids in the virus membrane. That is more or less how soap also removes normal dirt of the skin (see graphic at the top of this article).

The soap molecules also compete with a lot other non-covalent bonds that help the proteins, RNA and the lipids to stick together. The soap is effectively “dissolving” the glue that holds the virus together. Add to that all the water.

The soap also outcompetes the interactions between the virus and the skin surface. Soon the virus gets detached and falls apart like a house of cards due to the combined action of the soap and water. Boom, the virus is gone!

Water is not effective alone in washing the virus off our hands. Alcohol-based products work better. But nothing beats soap — the virus detaches from the skin and falls apart readily in soapy water.
