Sperm Hardiness/LIfespan?

HI everyone :),
So I want to know the lifespan and hardiness of sperm outside the body and what can kill them. Also I have a little scenario for you. Suppose someone masturbated during his bath and ejaculated on his hand. After his bath he washes his hands twice with dishwashing liquid. So is that enough to kill them?

Hi Anon

There are no precise answers to your question. About 5-15/20 minutes is a good guide. Any kind of hand-washing will kill sperm.
