Doin' What Comes Natur'lly

HEY GERMAPHOBES! Wanna spread dangerous Staphylococcus all over your kitchen/bathroom/desk/phone? Try using an antibacterial wipe. Yeah, you heard me.

Turns out, using antibacterial wipes can spread around the methicillin-resistant staph. HA!

Scientists at Cardiff University, UK have found that this surface cleaner used in hospitals, but also in germphobic households, can spread methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus when used across more than one surface. So if you're going to use it, use it just like t.p.; wipe once, and then throw away. Or better yet, don't use them at all. Full article here.
