Soap is magic. With all that we understand about germ theory and antibiotics and sanitizing, we can’t do better than what the Babylonians (likely) came up with 5000 years ago.
Now that hand sanitizer has become liquid gold, know how it works, what it’s good for, and how to use it.
Surfactants alone remove all manner of dirt, germs and other ickies off counters, cutting boards, sinks, you.
Yesterday, my hand sanitizer accompanied me to the top of Sri Lankan landmark Sigiriya, the Lion Rock.
When ducklings touch every part of the cart, run their hands over the check-out belt, & find pennies in the parking lot…
Soap works! Somewhere, we accepted that soap isn’t good enough and only synthetic antibacterial agents are legitimate cleansers. Not true.
