I knew I was right to hate antibacterial soap!!

Take a read of this...another thing to worry about. Honestly, though, it totally makes sense. Why would we think that we can use all of these antimicrobials without impacting our bodies and potentially our babies? Unless you work in a hospital or otherwise required sterile environment, soap and water is best, with vigorous scrubbing.

I agree. For a while, it was a "must" in the kids' school, and I complained. It's really not healthy or necessary.

    I have heard this before too and haven't been on the antibacterial train for a long time. We use a Thieves essential oils hand sanitizer but our soap is goat milk soap or an organic liquid soap I buy in bulk once or twice a year.

    I do something very similar, Theresa.
