If you know me at all, you know I’m a bizarro germophobe (and by bizarre, I mean I’ll eat food off the floor, let my dog sleep in our bed, eat/drink after people I consider my friends but do everything in my power to keep from touching other people or their things; I always have a small bottle of some type of instant hand sanitizer on my person). Especially at my job when I daily touch other people’s dead skin cells among other grossness. I’m constantly washing my hands and, especially in winter, this causes my skin to be very very dry. However, this is not a pro-lotion post, this is all about soap. And how Ben constantly tries to convince me that we should buy antibacterial soap because “It’s antibacterial!! It’s better!! It kills MORE germs!!!” and so forth. Ha! I say, my retort always being the reliable, “but what does regular soap do if not kill bacteria?!?” but without any kind of physical proof. Although this probably should have been a project for my research loving sister, I managed to find another blog that so kindly proved my point for me.
Here is the post about soap that is both wonderfully informative and promotes greenishness too.
And this is the wonderful Virginian couple at Young House Love that has apparently been around for a few years and I’ve only just discovered this past summer from the ever-clever DIY magazine. Although I think they’re a little too beige friendly for my taste, they have some brilliant ideas and our conflicting colour-schemes are about the only problem I’ve found with this wonderfully creative couple.
Now if I can only get Ben to read it and see that I’m right.
As per usual.
