Something to think about when washing your hands.

FDA: Antibacterial soaps could pose health risks

Elizabeth Weise, USATODAY 8:51 p.m. EST December 16, 2013
The Food and Drug Administration issued a proposed rule requiring manufacturers to prove that their antibacterial cleaners are safe and more effective than plain soap and water.

An estimated 75% of the anti-bacterial liquid soaps and body washes sold in the United States contain triclosan, a germ-killing ingredient. The only problem is, the Food and Drug Administration has no idea whether it actually works

Nowhere is safe, no one is safe. We are all exposed to germs every single day.

Here is a link to the 8 Germiest places in a Mall.

Germiest places

Check out some of the other articles.

So glove up if you must, but don't go shopping.

Dirty Hands

I don't "glove" doing the rv dirties but after being a mechanic for 35 years and playing in the solvents, fuels and chemicals, I found that wearing nitrile gloves while at work made me feel better. I suppose all the stuff that was being absorbed through the skin was now eliminated. Still today, if chemicals are involved-gloves go on.

We seem to have a consensus, no gloves. Lets shake hands on it.

Well then, I'm convinced...no more cumbersome gloves for me. Besides, when I pulled those two black water dump 'T's, all I can smell is a heavy bouquet of Night Blooming Jasmine anyway.

The FDA is worse than useless. It has become a political organization whose chief executives own interests in the very industries they are supposed to be regulating.

Depends.

When arriving at cg, I always connect the potable water hose first, then the sewer stuff. When breaking camp, the potable water hose is the first thing to get packed away. Potable water hose always gets stored well away from sewer stuff and gets treated with the ultimate of respect.

As long as there is a faucet at the cg site, I don't use gloves anymore. I wash hands inside our camper after setting up (assuming DW has done her duties inside) and when breaking camp, I rinse hands off at cg faucet. If at dump station and there's no hose for rinsing, gloves get used. If doing something that looks "risky" like say filling up or emptying the portable holding tank, I use gloves. I don't store the sewer hose in the bumper anymore, I just connect the ends together and put them in the storage compartment or back of the truck (we have a canopy) -easier, cleaner, faster.

If I have a fresh cut on my hands, then I definitely use gloves.

Some basic generic info.: http://www.unco.edu/facility/EHS/Dis...re%20CDPHE.pdf

I worry more about other sources of nasty and disgusting germs. Take a kitchen washcloth for example: WHAT Is Filthier Than a Toilet Seat? - Netscape Home & Living I have to guess that many RV-ers don't keep their dishcloths as clean as they should because they want to reduce water use and not fill up the grey tank.

If you want to know something rather unpleasant about germs and toilets, I found this on a website:

Toothbrush Trouble
Claim: Every time you flush the toilet, your toothbrush gets sprayed with bacteria.
Gross but true. Microorganisms are ejected when you flush the toilet and land all over the bathroom, even if you close the lid, according to research by Gerba. But you probably won't get sick from this. "When the toothbrush dries, most of the organisms will die anyway," says Gerba. Just keep your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible, or put it in the medicine cabinet, he says. If someone in the house is ill and using the same bathroom as you are, her germs could be spread this way.


RV toilets can spray and spit water out. Think from now on, I will be using the toothbrush well before anyone flushes the toilet

No gloves if nobody's around. Now if I had an audience when getting into a site then I'll suit up for hazmat duty!
Here's an idea- What do you all you people do when your pet, either cat or dog, goes and does their business, licks themselves, and then 30 minutes later comes over and licks your face? Every pet owner has had it happen..
