Using a liquid for filtering in mask

Since it's very hard to find a good filtering system for Covid-19, I was wondering if we could use a liquid...
If a specific liquid could trap or neutralize the virus while letting the air through. Obviously I thought of alcohol, that should kill the virus but the fumes wouldn't be good for the users health, would soapy water be enough?
I know that having a "water bottle" attached to a mask would be uncomfortable, but that's not important, would it work?

I just wonder about the actual design on something on this. Obviously, the need for a filtration system on masks is something you rightfully emphasise. But, I guess I just find it difficult to imagine a solution that doesn't involve risking comfort and/or mobility. That being said, I thought there were something interesting observations here: https://www.nap.edu/read/11637/chapter/4#23
