Microbes including viruses stay alive on surfaces depending upon the type of the surface like steel, wood, plastic, glass, marble etc. How effective is rinsing these surfaces with tap water in removing the existing microbes. I couldn't find this information on internet. Please provide source for your answer.
Rinsing the surface will make the micro organism growth static on the surface i.e it removes the micro organisms from the surface,but it is only for time being.But it is not effective in killing the micro organism.Mostly in labs,70% Alchohol is used to disinfect the surface.It is more effective in killing the organism.
