It's amazing what these chemical companies are allowed to sell.
Also (and I'm just guessing on this) but I don't buy those anti-bacterial 
soaps because I believe we are probably just going to create more super-bugs. 
 By the time the anti-bacterial agent gets into the city sewer it been 
diluted thousands, perhaps millions of times.  This extremely low level of 
chemical activity makes it more likely that pathogenic bacteria will survive 
and then pass on this survivability trait to its offspring and other 
bacteria. It's already happening with livestock antibiotics.   

On the other hand, I don't know if any bacteria can survive old-fashioned 
bleach or ammonia.  Does anyone know if there is any environmentl impact from 
either of these two?  (By the way, NEVER mix bleach with ammonia- that 
creates a poisonous gas)
