Scientists at the University of Georgia have developed a spray that penetrates clothing and makes it quite inhospitable to bacteria of all types. The spray can even last through wash cycles.

While at first glance this is a fantastic idea for hospitals and other sterile environments I wouldn’t want it anywhere near my home. Germs and disease is one thing, making something resistant to it all only breeds stronger bugs in the future! And I don’t know about you but I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with talk of MRSA and it’s gym buddies. I have conducted several very UNscientific studies on my own. Basically the more you clean things the more often you get sick. A little germ is good for you, a ¬†vacuum ¬†of power is bad. That coming from DR Paul!

So fantastic for the scientists who figured this out. more money for the fellows down the road who have to find a way to kill of the superbugs we get next year. Ok maybe I’d use it on the cutting boards and kitchen counter… but nothing else.
