I posted this on the comments board but no one responded. So I’ll try here.
Greetings knowledgable ones,
As I was reading through the archives, I noticed that Cecil, he whose dope is straightest, spoke of testing the cleaning properties of laundry balls or disks and detergents. The results - neither is necessary - plain water works just as well. On the other hand, speaking of the plume of bacteria coming from flushed toilets and the problems of similar bacteria on underwear, I note that the laundering of underwear should receive special attention. This suggests to me that someone has probably done a more in depth analysis of the antibacterial properties of various detergents (I suspect that the laundry balls do not do any better killing bacteria than the plain water). I want to know whether standard modern detergents kill the majority of bacteria or if I need to be sure to bleach my underwear (thus discommending colored underwear).
Thanks for any info.
If ‘meese’ was the plural of ‘moose’ then what would the plural of ‘mice’ be?
