Santized
This is something I've heard on other health pages. Indeed, normal handwashing with regular soap will take care of most germs. Antibacterial cleaners just encourage resistant strains of bacteria.

There is learned speculation that the burgeoning allergies that kids have—who heard of peanut allergies in the 1960s?—are caused by children's immune systems basically not having enough work to do.

Too Clean for Our Own Good?

Heck, I remember drinking out of the hose instead of going in the house, having eggnogs made from raw eggs (every morning for twelve years of school!), and other practices that would horrify mothers today. And my doctor complained that my mom "sheltered" me too much. LOL.
