Soap & The Flu

The flu season always brings in requests for me to make an antibacterial soap.  Neither my soap or the commercial antibacterial detergents will kill flu virus’.  However, a good hand washing with either product will lift and carry them down the drain.

The antibacterial detergents will kill bacterial germs-but at what price?   It’s ironic that since these products have been on the market there has also been an ever increasing rise of asthma, allergies, and chronic infections in our children.  We are also seeing more & more adults being diagnosed with a sudden onset of these same illness’. 

Research has found that using the antibacterial products are not more effective in preventing infections than if you used regular soap and water (read more here).

There are safer and less expensive means of keeping you and your household clean without harming your health.  You can find several ways to do this here & also here.

As the proverb states, there is nothing new under the sun and even this topic has been around for awhile. Read this reprint of a 1936 article on using soap.
