In brief: Try soap and water

Hiv is very easy to kill outside the body.
Washing with soap and water is enough.

In brief: Wimpy Virus

It is important to remember that viruses like hepc, HIV and others are strings of proteins that are connected by very weak bonds.
They require many things to stay active and need living cells to reproduce and survive. Unless there was gross blood, mucous or some other organic substance that got into your mouth, anus, vagina or open wound, the odds are very unlikely. That much cleaning will do it.
