Simple soap and water might not kill all viruses, but thorough hand washing will decrease the viral count significantly and prevent many infections.

Using hot water does not increase the effectiveness.

Alcohol gels are also very effective, unless the hands are heavily soiled. Numerous products are available and may be more convenient in many situations

The CDC recommends washing your hands for at least 15 seconds.
