Thanks, elf - you made me realize I didn't complete my thought!

"For a wood or plastic cutting board ... just wash them with hot soapy water ... after about 30-seconds rinse the soap off. One trick for a wood board, which might also work for a smooth plastic ... use a metal scraper to scrape food debris off the board before rinsing." should have been followed by: Then use a sanatizing solution.

Sometimes I think faster than I type!

Somewhere I also heard/read - it might have been here when we discussed cutting boards waaaay back when - but a vinegar/water solution was good to spritz on the boards and leave overnight. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

My friend's doctor told her that for athelete's foot, use 1/4 cup bleach for each gallon of water in a small tub and soak your feet. She was too scared to try it, but she told me about it. It works. Make sure you keep something like a white towel or paper towels nearby to dry your feet well, then rinse them with clear water. In fact, if you have 2 small tubs, you can keep one with fresh water next to the one with bleach, then you can just rinse and dry.

P.S. Don't do this on carpet, just in case you spill.

This works because athlete's foot is a fungus that bleach destroys.

Ladies, it also works on other fungus issues...

Here's another one...if you have to get out in the snow and ice, keep a bottle of bleach in your trunk in case you get stuck. Just pour some behind each rear wheel...it melts right through the ice, and you can get traction.

And if you happen to be into street rods...a little bleach poured under the tires will facilitate "peeling out and smokin' those tires!"

That sounds like a great idea. With my luck however, I'd get stuck all right, but when I would go for the bleach I'd find that it spilled in the trunk of the car and I'd have a bleached trunk and no bleach to get me out of the fix I was in.

Put the bleach bottle in a heavy cardboard box or plastic milk crate along with your jumper cables and a roll of paper towels.

I just use Clorox Clean-up in the spray bottle it claims to kill all the bacteria in 30 seconds up to 99.9% thats what I use on my boards its quick and easy it also works on coffee and tea stains on cups,glasses my ice tea container.Just be sure to rinse really well afterwards.Its good for cleaning up the inside of fridge when your doing one of those major cleanouts.
