Athletes have a new tool to stay safe during the pandemic thanks to chalk that kills the coronavirus.

If you've ever used a climbing wall at the gym or just needed a good grip on some weights, you've probably used chalk.

But disinfecting and cleaning that chalk off equipment can be difficult and time-consuming.

To help calm concerns, new liquid chalk called Secret Stuff was designed for rock climbers to kill the coronavirus. The chalk is so popular, it's being used for a lot more than just climbing walls.

According to the maker, Friction Labs, the liquid chalk is actually as good as or better than using hand sanitizer.
