How antiseptics differ from disinfectants?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 22nd Jun, 2016, 11:05: AM
Drugs that are produced from micro-organisms and are used to kill other harmful micro-organisms are known as Antibiotics.
Disinfectants are chemical substances which kill micro-organisms but are not safe to be applied on living tissues. These are used to kill the micro-organisms present in the drains, toilets etc.
