Plenty of young people dont use these. However some of us have to work in situations where we are exposed to a lot of muck/ snot /blood/germs and statistically you get sick less if you use them.
They had soap.
They did have alternatives. Alcohol for cleaning is definitely not a new thing and people would use it for first aid and wiping surfaces etc when needed. They would also boil everything - linen, clothes, cutlery, cups, plates, all baby gear. Sterilization is not a new concept and if anything they did it much better and regularly than we do today because we tend to treat things with drugs after we are sick, where they didn't have access to good medications back then so avoidance was really important.
They survive the same way i do, without it. I dont use any of that antibacterial stuff. Just regular soap or hand wash
Thank goodness for Glen 20! This was a life saver last week when my house hold was struck down with gastro. I cannot praise it enough! Oh and washing hands and useing clean towels aswell!
Soap and water. Too many chemicals are dangerous, I'd go easy on sprays and antibacterial stuff
we played in the mud, ran around, we had great immune systems, not scared of germs. use good old soap and water.
The didn't they got deadly diseases we now vaccinate for... 🤔
Keep in mind you're talking about anti-BACTERIAL, that doesn't prevent viruses.
They actually got sick less because they had stronger immune systems. Exposure to small amounts of bacteria and viruses is how you build up immunity. Disinfecting everything weakens us and makes the germs grow stronger.
They didn't that is why they are all dead.
