David would wash mushrooms before cooking them - but I think I have trained him out of that - if their cooked, their fine!

I have seen people peel mushrooms - what a waste of a good mushroom, I sometimes only wash carrots and potatoes and don't peel them, they are nice! Do they peel the cucumber too?

If they're covered in mud then I rinse it off as I don't like eating bits of gritty soil :lol: But we get an organic veg box delivery so they're not quite as pristine as you see in the supermarket!!!

Interestingly it's actually better to wash non-organic veg as they're often covered in pesticides whereas organic veg it's just soil and bugs which get killed by cooking...

I almost always wash mine after nappies, on the odd occasion I might get distracted :oops: but not with a dirty one!! I don't use anti-bac soap though as it rips my hands to shred.

Steph, you said the soap was stinging, has it done any good at all?

Well I stopped using it as it stung - DH has been using it for his face instead!! :)

I'm using angelbaby diaper-rash soap at the moment and it doesn't seem to dry my hands out too much - has things like oatmeal and stuff in...

So I think as I wasn't using ordinary soap before I didn't really notice much difference...

Is ok - his face is lovely and soft!! :lol:

If my hands didn't have little cuts in them from my filing rampages at work I think I'd be fine - I think tis just getting in the cuts... Hasn't made them worse or anything tho'...

Will be trying it again once the cuts have healed as I'm not wasting a huge great bar of soap!!

Tis strange, it never stung my hands even though they were bleeding when I first started using it. I hope they are ok when you start using it again :?
