Re: [IP] kleenex

I havn't used an alcohol swab in like 5 years and our D-teams up here don't even suggest using them anymore as they dry out the skin and are found to be not needed, any ways I just lick my finger clean before testing if I think it needs it!  I know germs, but I am somewhat of a germ phobic(becoming one) and I do wash my hands often and always carry individual wet ones for times when needed so for the most part my hands are decent, and I don't catch everything in Fact I rarley catch colds/flus anymore!  I also lick my eye glasses clean when they need it, I just give them a good lick and wipe with my shirt, the eye glass store said NEVER wipe when dry so I make them wet!! :-)
