as i sit here with still watery eyes and a yucky nose
love thy germs
i don't buy antibacterial stuff on purpose either. if i have to really clean something, regular cleaning supplies do well. basic soap, etc. i am actually trying to get back to using basics- vinegar, baking soda, etc. haven't taken the big plunge yet- but that's on the to do list.
i watch commercials for bacitracin and neosporin and i say to hubby- christ, these kids are namby pamby. i just wiped the blood off and kept playing- unless it wouldn't clot. then, in i would go to wash it out and slap a bandaid on it. soap and water and did it sting like a mofo! i grew up in florida and when you ride your bike on an unpaved, limestone road- and fall- odds are you are going to take the skin off of your leg. which i did. i promptly limped home and jumped in the shower and let's just say- it hurt. and it was my pre-swearing days as i was a kid.
anyhoo, the sickness is making me ramble- and my last thoughts- dirt isn't horrible. dust isn't horrible. needs to be cleaned but not to with an inch of its life. germs aren't the baddies- viruses are and i doubt that there's much on the market to fight those. just sayin'
