WARNING

"Caution: Dangerous to humans and domestic animals."


That was the warning on a bottle of Clorox wipes in the bathroom. I could understand if it said there was a danger in ingesting them or something like that, but the warning seems to indicate there is a general danger in posessing and using them. Why owuld anyone keep something that dangerous in their house. Just being around them could give you what doctors refer to as "FLK's" of Funny Looking Kids.

Be careful

    What I find most interesting is that people think a quick wipe down with Clorox wipes will kill germs with incredible efficiency. 'Tis not so. One of my friends (who happens to be a Microbiologist) gets all worked up whenever those ads come on TV.

    What really bothers me is that people think they need antimicrobial (antibacterial, same thing) soap everywhere. Your kitchen is really the only place you need it. The bathroom is surprisingly clean (the floor around your bed is probably dirtier) and whatever bacteria you're exposed to while you're in the loo probably won't make you sick (after all, it just came out of your body). The kitchen, on the other hand, needs to be kept as clean as possible so that salmonella and E-coli (among others) don't get spread around.

    Even then, as long as you wash everything with warm water and soap, you should be covered. Plain old soap will denature any virus. What about mad cow disease, you ask? BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, a.k.a. mad cow disease) is caused by prions; tightly wound proteins (which, contrary to popular belief, can be destroyed).

    dude, also, mad cow disease (im not 100% sure about all the time, but the recent scare we had) was only found in milking cows, so we wouldnt have to worry about eating a hot dog with mcd.
