This lurker apologizes for beating a dead horse but for health and practical purposes I thought I'd mention baking soda. It is something we ought to have near our pickle pots to neutralize potential acid spills and I would think a good practice to clean hands/forearms with anyway to avoid acid burns from un-realized contact.
I have been delighted and amazed at what my simple question on hand
cleaning has wrought, metamorphosing from hand cleaning ( I love
this baking soda reply) through the feminist arguments (you rock,
Women!!) I don’t think we women have to prove anything with beat up
and dirty hands. When we enter and get into art shows our work speaks
for us. Thanks for a delightful bunch of replies. I’ll see if I can
think up another deceptively simple question sometime soon.
