Hibiclens is a product I want to share with you, and with the ebola thread as well, because it is a wonderful tool in the fight against disease, contamination, and infections of all kinds.
Hibiclens is readily available at Walmart and pharmacies, as well as online.
The amazing thing is that once hands or any body part is washed with Hibiclens, it continues to kill bacteria, micro-organisms, AND viruses for up to twenty-four hours after using. That means everything from the common cold to streptococcus to ebola!

Hibiclens uses the same active ingredient(chlorhexidrine) as some other cleansers.
I do have several gallons of chlorhexidine gluconate 'Udder Wash' concentrate, each gallon is diluted 10:1(for 10 gallons of cleansing agent per gallon). I use it for viral decontamination of. It's inexpensive and goes a long way if the time should arise.
The 'Teat Dip' and 'Udder Wash' come plain-for outerwear and with lanolin for that nice soft virus/bacteria Free skin cleansing. The lanolin is a plus you won't find in lab disinfectants, and a nice thing(for my wife especially). :)
BTW, During the last flu crisis here in the states you could not beg, borrow or steal Chlorhexidine Gluconate Udder Wash!
Shopping around for the best price of Chlorhexidine cleansers could lead to other disciplines such as dog/cat/pet cleansers, laboratory cleaners, udder/teat wash, etc. In the case of an epidemic the main sources will be depleted quickly(Amazon, Hospital supply houses), and a trip to PetMart or Farm & Fleet might be a life saver.
This won't be something you carry around with you, but when you return home, after burying the dead(?), foraging supplies during/after the epidemic(?), helping at the local infirmary, etc, you'll want to clean up 'real good' with it before meeting up with the family. :)
