The "This Might Be A Stupid Question, But...." Thread

<< < (1468/2157) > >>

Soak in hot, soapy water, scrub with a brush, spray with bleach.

This might sound weird, but do you have one of those old "water pix" teeth flossing things? I'm not even sure if they still make them, but basically they're tiny pressure washers designed to use high-powered, pressured water instead of dental floss.  We use one in this house not for dental care, but to clean kitchen utensils such as the one described.

I have soaked them in hot soapy water and scrubbed at them with a brush, but I cannot totally get them clean. Granted, if I went at every single little square with a toothpick or some such, I could probably do it, but that would metaphorically take forever. Is there a simpler way?

(I have the grated, circular kind.)

Eh, maybe I'm gross, but I'm of the mindset, if it won't come off with soap and water, it won't come off on my food, and so I don't worry about things like that too much. All the germs are probably dried out of the bits anyway.

That's what I've been doing and my mindset, too; I just wanted to know if maybe I wasn't doing enough, ya know?

Ms_Cellany, other than spraying with bleach, that's what I've been doing and all of the stuff still won't come off.  Does the bleach loosen it or something or are you just suggesting that as a sanitizing measure?

mmswm, unfortunately not, though now I'm going to see if I can find one for relatively cheap.

Stupid question for contact wearers! These suckers feel weird and stuff keeps going out of focus. I have acuvue 2's and they are (i guess) soft plastic. Is this normal or what?

Outdoor Girl:
What kind of cleaner are you using?  I have that happen when I try to use an all in one cleaner.  I use Clear Care or Aosept which uses peroxide to sterilize the lenses.  There is a little disk in the case that is a catalyst to convert the peroxide to water and oxygen.

My boss kept getting eye infections.  I put him on to Clear Care and he's never had another one.
