Go Anti Antibacterial
It turns out that plain soap and water is just as effective as antibacterial soaps for keeping hands clean and germ free. But Triclosan, the chemical compound added to some liquid soaps, toothpaste, cosmetics and more, is linked to water quality concerns and potential impacts on human health.* That’s why the Minnesota Department of Health recommends plain soap and water, with vigorous rubbing of your hands as the most important step, to wash your hands. Next time you see Triclosan on the label, don’t buy the product or the claim that it’s better. Simple soap and water is the safer way to keep clean — for our waterways, wildlife and all of us.
