I had a young friend who used the milton for her baby bottles, then she would rinse them under the tap cos she didnt like the smell. When I said she may just as well use the hot washing up water she was horrified.
No milton about when mine were babies and they both survived, very well.
I use a gritty soap to wash my hands, not using gloves, i get caked in it.
But they are open to the air and dont suffer at all. Every night I knit and my hands are never catchy on the wool..
I do think that sometimes we are frightened into being over clean, i used to eat dirt , coal and alsorts as a child, lived to this ripe old age and still as tough as old boots.
