Germs, germs germs...good, bad, ugly?
      04/07/06 07:50 PM

Thanks for everyone's feedback on my question about my baby making her nanny sick. We still haven't got his labs, but he seems pretty healthy, so we have our fingers crossed that he will not need meds right away.

Anyhow, we are moving along on our plan to buy a house (move out of our condo) for our second baby's arrival and for Uncle David to live with us.

I have never been a fan of anti-bacterial cleaners, because I am very wary of creating super bugs. I have a resistent bacterial infection myself that ebbs and flows, but never seems to die (for years!) and I am also quite chemical sensitive so I like to use eco-friendly cleaners.

HOWEVER, I picked up a can of lysol at the drugstore last week, becasue it said it was anti-tubercular (among other things) and I thought maybe I should use it to disinfect at least the bathroom and the doorknobs/lightswitches once a week or so.

Would this do more harm than good? What do you all do about this issue? What's the greater risk, the super-bug possibility or the common germs getting Uncle David? We still would wash our hands with (lots of warm water and) non anti-bac soap and I'd only use the lysol very strictly according to the strictest anti-germ directions.

Any advice?
