Will witch hazel kill the coronavirus?
There is no confirmed evidence that witch hazel is an effective antiseptic for bacteria or viruses, including COVID-19. To clean your hands, we recommend washing them well with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. For cleaning “high-touch” surfaces, the Environmental Protection Agency provides a list of approved cleaning products, including disinfectants for use against COVID-19.
