The virus is shell is made from lipids so is hydrophobic. Ethanol will dissolve the shell, 'killing' the virus. So my recommendation is ethanol based, but wouldnt know what other ingredients. I bet you could google it.

But soap is better.

Its not fancy, aqueous soap, bleach, or high grade (>60% w/w) alcohol solutions.

Ethanol (or isopropanol), glycerol, and dilute hydrogen peroxide.

Refer to section 12.1.1 of the WHO recommendations:

Okay, how to scale up this to 50 litre per day production?

I am going to lock this thread temporarily.
We typically do not allow cook book chemistry here for drugs and cosmetics.

We will discuss it among the moderators and get back to you
