Re: Antibacterial soaps


I'd never heard of doing the happy birthday or the abc's when washing, but it makes sense.

Washing your hands is a lot like washing your [sign in to see URL] recommended time for teeth brushing is 2 minutes. I don't think you need to wash hands for quite that long, but a good minute, with warm water and a good soap should be more than adequate.

Re: Antibacterial soaps


I hadn't seen this one.. So I will wade in..

Anti bacterial soaps are just that - often not particularly strong, but still operate against bacteria - the variance of strength is the problem - Bacteria will eventually learn to ignore the stuff, making it very difficult to stop bacterial invasions.

They have uses in commerce, but homes need bacteria to be left alone in the most part - we come equipped with millions of friendly bacteria that keep us healthy - they tend to be weaker than the dangerous strains, so we kill them first, leaving us open to the problems of the dangerous ones. All of the families I have known who use those soaps all the time, have serious health problems and will continue to do so, because they have killed their own defensive army.


Correct way to wash hands. Happy Birthday works fine, if you make sure you do the correct lathering process, then the washing process then the rinsing - rinsing is the most important, not as most assume, the least. Soap will lift bad bacteria, rinsing will get them off the body. The good bacteria tend to be unaffected by washing - they hide when the water comes. If you kill them all, the hiding spaces are taken over by the bad guys.

Carrying an alcohol hand cleanser is a good idea - it will protect against bad germs, if you clean shopping carts and your hands after being in the supermarkets. Always clean afterwards - before is pointless.

Re: Antibacterial soaps


I avoid antibacterial soaps for the home - for the very reasons Muladzh mentioned.

Those soaps just do one thing: They teach bacteria to be resistant to the poisons that are supposed to kill them. And then those poisons no longer work in dire cases. Using antibacterial soaps is very silly.

In fact, one of my aunts whose husband owned a pharmacy managed to make her own life rather miserably by overuse of desinfectants. She developed severe allergies, a sensitivity to light and felt all in all quite threatened by the world ...

Re: Antibacterial soaps


Oh and Muladzh...thank you for the PM. It explains a lot. Now I know what to concentrate on to help myself over this emotional hurdle.
On SUSA'S I mentioned a homeopathic concoction that the local health food place recommended for my lungs. I put the ingredients [sign in to see URL] way, at least you can tell me if they would do harm. emoticon
