What is an antiseptic liquid?

An antiseptic liquid is a solution that is applied externally to destroy or kill microorganisms or microbes that may cause diseases. For example, it stops a wound or an incision from becoming infected. Dettol antiseptic liquid is one of the most commonly used antimicrobial solutions in our households. In addition, it makes up part of the first aid kits in most homes, offices, and schools.
