antibacterial-soap

The soap industry has embraced "antibacterial" even though pharmaceutical companies avoid the word, strongly preferring "antibiotic." The reason soap manufactures use "antibacterial," I suspect, is that they understand the public's confusion over what, exactly, "antibiotics" do. I.e., many people assume that antibiotics kill viruses and other non-bacterial microorganisms.
