Bucky.......I have never heard this before........think I'll have to do a little research on it. I worked for an Infectious Disease doctor and he never mentioned something like this.

i thought about using a hand sanitizer at work... but when the health inspector comes in and he sees this we will get written up. they're very strict about what we can and can not use. i guess washing my hands a thousand times a day just wasn't enough to avoid the virus that i got.

When doing a large amount of cooking outside I use those extra large anti-bacterial wipes so I don't have to keep running in and out of the house to wash up. Are those as good as advertised?

My opinion is that they're better than nothing, but don't replace true washing.

bangbang, thank goodness that thing is not airborne. I will ask my daughters boyfriend and his stepfather about this. They are both nurses in convalescent homes.

I wash my hands so much since becoming a nurse, that I'm shocked to still have skin on them. And, I'm a big stickler on everyone in my home having clean hands, too. I find myself always on the prowl for new hand lotions to combat the harsh effects of some soaps, especially industrial soaps. If anyone has any hand lotion/cream suggestions, please share! :D

I just discovered Eucerin's Calming Creme. My hands get really itchy when they're dry and this really helps take the itch out and moisturizes well.

i like kiehl's lotions, but they don't smell so good. also have found anything with a lot of shea butter is good. dw just bought some pure shea butter creme, from france i think. i'm sure i'll be trying it out soon ( the next time her back, neck, or feet hurt, <<sigh>>) the best is to get one of those warm paraffin baths. i will neglect my hands until they crack. then, the only thing that works is soaking in oiled water, then into the paraffin.
